Inset Day - SEN

assisting educators manage children and young people in distress and with challenging behaviour - an inset day to remember


Bespoke Inset Day

Are you interested in a inset day that is informative, fun and memorable enough staff are talking about it months afterwards?

Disruptive pupil behaviour is a frustration for many teachers. In fact, 70% of teachers told us they had considered quitting the profession over poor behaviour

Interacting with individuals who display distress through problem behaviour has an emotional toll on educators and carers. Embedding a comprehensive system to assist staff with this is a core feature of the inset day. All staff will learn how to implement this system by themselves and for themselves. This adds a structure for staff they can utilise before relying on their senior hierarchy. All of D.ESCAL8TM training and consultancy is founded upon Positive Behaviour Support (PBS). PBS is backed by a solid evidence base; organisations such as Skills for Care, NICE and the British Institute of Learning Disabilities (BILD) have PBS at the core of their literature and practice.
