• Support for Teachers

    Teaching (like Parenting) is rocket science

    Teachers have responsibility not only for creating and providing lessons but also for caring for their pupils and noticing any physical or emotional problems.

     

    Any parent knows that looking after more than two children can be challenging, a teacher can have up to thirty children in his or her care. Teachers have enormous responsibilities and one of the best things a teacher can do to cope with these demands and to continue to enjoy teaching is to become conscious of how well he / she cares for him or herself.

    Children bring with them into school all their worries and hurts from home and while children and young people are not out to make life difficult for teachers but are trying to show how difficult life is for them it can be enormously difficult for a teacher to deal with challenging behaviours.

     

    Similarly teachers come to school with their own inner upsets and hurts and while they are not out to make life difficult for children but are trying to show how difficult life can be for them, it can be enormously difficult for a child to cope with a teacher’s challenging behaviours.

  • Our courses

    Contact us if you are interested in a course.

    The support we offer includes:

      • One to one support for teachers in the form of individual sessions focussing on what challenges the teacher is facing within him / herself and within the classroom and the support he/she needs.
         
      • Courses to enable teachers to reclaim the pleasure of teaching by looking at how well they care for themselves while caring for and educating children.

      Courses;

      • Realising Your Potential ( 6 one hour sessions, evening)

      When we no longer secretly try to win recognition through how we look, what we do, what we achieve and what status we have, we become much better artists, businesspeople, politicians, parents, students, or teachers. We are freed to do what we do as a form of creative play rather than as a form of self-validation.’

      Course Two:

      • A different kind of discipline. (one day course- Saturday)

      A course that looks at how different things can be in the classroom when we view discipline as the practice of care and respect of self and others

      • Communicating with children and young people ( 4 one hour sessions- evening) 

      Looking at the difference between mature, open communication and defensive, closed communication and the response of young people to both.
