Overview Behaviour Support Training: Level One Course INT


The Behaviour Support Training Level One – 6 Hour course is for anyone working in low-risk settings wanting to develop a better understanding of behaviour and be more confident supporting children, young people or adults.

With our award-winning training, everyone in your organisation will have a wide range of practical, person-centred de-escalation skills and positive behaviour strategies, to support individuals in their care and respond to their behaviour in a way that is reasonable, proportionate, necessary and respectful.

Our training provides you with a toolkit of strategies you can rely on and promotes respect, teamwork and communication with the focus on early intervention, de-escalation and prevention.

Training is delivered by experienced trainers and we can, further to pre-course consultation, ensure the focus of the modules is relevant to the specific settings and everyday situations encountered by those taking part.
