Team-Teach is the only training company, providing physical intervention techniques as part of its course delivery, to have received the highest level of award in the U.K – a National Training Award. This government supported award is presented to entries who have demonstrated exceptional achievement through training and development. Judges were impressed by the support infrastructure and the robust quality control and assurance processes. They observed that it was a clearly needed service and its innovative approaches have delivered significant benefits to schools/services and local authorities/employers. If you wish to know more, please refer to the National Training Award document: “Helping Teachers Manage Challenging Behaviour” within the Case Study/Research area of the web site.
Positive Handling Strategies are constantly being evaluated, with safety being paramount. The number of serious incidents / restraints should decrease following training. Training will help employers and employees meet their obligations under Health and Safety legislation thus reducing potential liability claims. Learning outcomes and behaviour should improve through the provision of safe learning and caring.
The training also has a fun element. It will reduce stress, enhancing team-work, co-operation and staff morale. Courses are quality controlled and assured with all training summary evaluation reports being produced as evidence of best value. These summary reports are sent to the Director of Team Teach for acknowledgement and comment.
The Positive Handling Strategies have sufficient range and flexibility to be appropriate across the age and development range, for both the intentional and non-intentionally “challenging” individual. Training enables staff to feel more confident and competent in their management of disruptive and “challenging” behaviour, reducing stress by increasing safety and security for all involved.
