- Want to improve engagement?
- Don’t know how to motivate students?
- Need help in creating interventions?

For various reasons, within schools there are dysfunctional relationships within the classrooms. People are bringing their ‘stuff’ and the environment creates ‘stuff’. The behaviour intervention program uses emotional literacy as a way to support students and train staff, to improve the relationship with themselves and others. Once the students become mindful of their behaviours, staff become mindful of students and engage them, behaviour and academic outcomes improve.

This program has a pupil-centred approach, tackling the issues your staff face within the classroom. Working closely with the pupils, this program allows them to explore their feelings, reflect on real situations and dilemmas, and make better choices in the way they communicate with staff and their peers. Student programs are carried out as workshop days, 10 week programs and yearly programs as a partnership with the school.
A two-pronged method is most effective, where staff are equipped with the tools needed to create engaging lessons, build rapport with students and effectively manage challenging situations once the program has ended. This can be carried out as full INSET days or twilight sessions.
