This 5-day Intermediate Trainer course provides your organisation with researched, considered behaviour support strategies as a foundational approach for your staff, when responding to behaviours in your working environment.

The full suite of Team Teach behaviour support strategies, all the required theory and the physical intervention skills to support low-medium-higher risk behaviours are included. The programme also provides you with a tried and trusted training framework and covers international best practice, planning, risk assessments and relationship building, to help reduce risk and the use of restrictive practices within your organisation.

We work with you to positively transform behaviour support in your organisation and reduce the need for physical intervention and our training promotes respect, teamwork, personal safety, preventative skills and de-escalation.

  • increase understanding and awareness of behaviour as communication and develop a consistent framework and shared approach as an organisation to better respond and reduce risk
  • provide ongoing flexible, cost-effective training and professional development to your staff team as and when required
