New course from Fintan O’Regan on managing behaviour & reducing the risk of exclusions from schools

Why have fixed-rate exclusions from state-funded primary, secondary and special schools increased by 44% in 4 years?

This brand-new course aims to help teachers and schools to counter the worryingly high statistics of students being excluded for Persistent Disruptive Behaviour (PDB). This term is used to cover a spectrum of behaviours from calling-out in class, annoying/distracting other students and general attention seeking.

This course teaches the ‘SF3R’ approach. It is a cohesive method involving parents, teachers and all stakeholders. It seeks to train teachers to support students exhibiting signs of PDB before it becomes a significant problem and ultimately helps lower the number of exclusions.
