Programme description

The Teacher Classroom Management (TCM) training programme comprises 6 full-day workshops running at 3-4 week intervals during the school year. The programme is focused on strengthening teacher classroom management strategies, promoting children's pro-social behaviour, and reducing classroom aggression and noncooperation with peers and teachers. The programme can be useful for teachers, teacher aides, psychologists, school counsellors, and any school personnel working with young children. Workshops cover the following topics: 




Part 1: Building Positive Relationships with Students

Part 2: Preventing Behaviour Problems - The Proactive Teacher

Two The Importance of Teacher Attention, Coaching, Encouragement and Praise
Three Motivating Children Through Incentives
Four Decreasing Inappropriate Behaviour: Ignoring & Redirecting
Five Follow through with Consequences
Six Teaching about Relationships: Emotional Regulation, Social Skills & Problem Solving

How it works

The TCM training involves 6 full day workshops delivered at 3-4 weeks intervals usually during school term-time. Archways typically run 2 TCM terms during the academic year with start dates for courses in Sep/Oct and Jan/Feb.

Who attends?

Teachers and other schools staff including resource teachers and, in some circumstances, special needs assistants. It is very useful for school principals to attend in order to understand the programme and provide support to teachers. It is worth discussing with Archways how to get the right balance of participants on the training before starting. 

Refresher days

Some other schools and organisations have chosen to run a 'refresher' day for TCM participants approximately one year after completion of TCM 6 day training. Refresher days can be tailored to meet the needs of the group (e.g. full day/half day/ after school sessions). Contact Archways for quote.
