CPD October 2017

Once again the brilliant Dr Julie Casey led this day course, covering Behaviour Management specifically from the perspective of supply teachers across all key stages. The group collected a metaphoric toolbox of strategies for low-level disruption during the morning while the afternoon was devoted to looking at the very latest neuro science for understanding behaviour.

We all shared strategies and experiences and Julie was as ever thoroughly entertaining in her delivery. Many thanks to all who attended, it was lovely to see you and have the opportunity to get to know you better.
