Managing difficult conversations

How to manage teacher to pupil conversations safely

Target audience:

Open to all school staff, especially useful for NQT/RQT teaching staff, or new to post LSA/TAs.

You will be contacted post booking for further information on job role and areas of experience to enable the trainer to make sure the sessions are bespoke for those attending.

Aim:

Develop a greater awareness of pastoral care responsibilities, how to develop confidence in dealing with difficult disclosure from pupils, developing a bank of supportive phrases and strategies to appropriately manage situations.

Sheila will work with delegates to understand early warning signs in young people, and how to build effective trust an rapport. With these building blocks in place, teaching staff can then feel increased confidence in having pastoral conversations.

Time will be given to discussing appropriate conversation phrasing and structures. Delegates should come willing to share scenarios or questions to maximise the potential of this session.

 

There is a second opportunity to access this training in May. Please select the appropriate date from the 4th column in this row.

Developing Resilience & Resonance in the Workplace

Trainer:

Lisa Dickinson

 

Lisa is a dedicated organisation & People Development professional with over 20 years’ experience delivering organisation improvement in both the public & private sectors. She focuses particularly on the people aspects of organisational change, delivering transformation through learning & development programmes as well as results driven coaching for teams & individuals.

www.lpda.co.uk

Summary:

Developing Resilience & Resonance in the Workplace

FACT: 1 in 10 children & young people aged 5 - 16 suffer from a diagnosable mental health disorder - that is around three children in every class. (www.youngminds.org.uk)

FACT: 40% of new teachers leave the profession within 5 years (Ofsted 2014)

It is becoming increasingly important to manage the health & wellbeing of both staff & students in school. It is essential that we create environments & cultures where children can thrive, be safe, learn & progress – where they can be emotionally well. For that to happen, the adults in the schools need to be both emotionally & physically well. We need to create resonance, resilience & balance in our classrooms by creating resonance, resilience & balance in our lives.

This workshop is designed to help you:

Explore some of the research into resonance & resilience & the application of these ideas in schools.

Explore the signs of dissonance & ‘sacrifice syndrome’ & how to avoid it.

Reflect on your own experiences & develop ideas to maintain your own work life balance & wellbeing.

This will be a practical, fun & interesting session that will provide you with strategies to take away & use every day.
