Classroom Management Resource - a must have

"Good Behaviour - No Problem!"

Needs-Focused Classroom Management Distance Learning Package

Needs-Focused™ Classroom Management


Regain control in the classroom, deal swiftly and efficiently with behaviour problems and become the calm, stress-free, relaxed teacher you trained to be. Not only that, your lessons will be the ones pupils talk about and actually want to come to!


“This workshop is something not to be missed. The entertainment is splendid and the essential messages will not be forgotten.”

Dr. Chris Botton, University of Hull

A Practical, Transformational and Cost-Effective Training Solution

As creators of compelling, highly engaging, results-driven training courses, we have recently designed a course specifically for education professionals who want to take control and create calm classrooms where teaching and learning naturally take priority. Classrooms where behaviour problems are the exception rather than the norm. Classrooms where challenging pupils are dealt with swiftly and effectively without leading to furher confrontation. Classrooms where ALL pupils feel valued and supported and so less inclined to cause problems in the first place.

Step-by-step, easy-to-follow

This course simplifies the whole process of classroom and behaviour management for teachers, lecturers, classroom assistants, mentors and other education professionals, providing a very clear step-by-step system for PREVENTING, MINIMISING and SOLVING all behaviour problems.

Study in your own time

As part of our commitment to make training as affordable and accessible as possible we are now able to offer this course in a Distance Learning version. Using video, audio and various text-based files together with the power of the Internet you can now access our training in your own time. No more commuting, no more arranging cover and no more expensive course fees. You get an excellent training package at a fraction of the cost of a live workshop, in a flexible, user-friendly format.


"Your course was brilliant and your presentation of it was amazing. Brilliant because the content of the course contained everything we needed to be brilliant teachers, and amazing, because you have the ability to make amazing transformations in those you teach."

Nina Plapp, London Attendee
