Course Details

The ten day Positive Behaviour Management train the trainer course takes place over three months. It is split into blocks of five, two and three days. Delegates complete a multiple choice question paper at the end of the first week. They present one unit of the theory in either the middle or the last block and they are assessed on the practical over the last two days.


During the course delegates are required to undertake three days' practice of physical interventions and one day's theory study.


When they successfully complete the course they are given free intranet access to a range of training materials to enable them to deliver the Positive Behaviour Management training programme in-house.


Train the trainer courses take place around the UK according to demand. If you are interested in placing delegates on a course please get in touch and we will let you know the next available dates in your area.


If you have not worked with us before we will ask you to complete a pre-training audit so we can ensure our training meets your needs. You will also need to sign a training agreement and supply a copy of your challenging behaviour policy.
