South West

Welcome to the South West region learning page. In the South West workplace and branch ULRs work closely with members to find out what their training needs are. Together we have organised a range of events including voice care, IT and British Sign language.

Branches in the South West are very proactive in using learning opportunities to engage with members. The workshops that they have opened up to members have included behaviour management, SEN awareness and dyslexia awareness. This has had the effect that more members are actively involved in ATL; some decide to become reps others to attend branch meetings and take on specific roles. Part of my role will be to ensure you are supported along the way.

As member in the South West you can get involved through attending an event or even become part of the South West Learning Network. This term a number of branches are undertaking learning needs surveys and will be using these to shape the events that will be on offer in the future. Please take time to complete these as we do want your input.

Behaviour Management from Day One

This half day session, especially for newly qualified teachers, focuses on how you establish your control of the classroom.

You will learn how to re-draw the lines and establish routines that give structure to your classroom. The course will look at how to create a positive culture for behaviour and how your own behaviour directly influences the behaviour of those around you. You will also start to plan for behaviour by writing an intervention script to use in difficult situations.

Course programme:

  • Learn the importance of emotional control.
  • Shift focus to the 95% of learners who are compliant.
  • Create a positive culture for behaviour in your classroom.
  • Teach routines relentlessly.
  • Plan for behaviour like you plan the content of your lessons.
  • Developing good working relationships with learners.

Who this course is for
