Cover Supervisor Training
This course explores the skills required to fulfill the role of a cover supervisor. It is an ideal progression for Teaching Assistants looking for more responsibility, sports coaches and undergraduates aspiring to a career in teaching.
We look at how a typical day would run, expectations and responsibilities of this role in a classroom. There is also much group participation within this session with the aim of building confidence in preparation for leading a class.
With Safeguarding and Positive Behaviour Management being a vital aspect to any role of responsibility in the classroom, this is covered also within the two and a half hours.
Introduction to Becoming a Teaching Assistant
Over the years Teaching Assistants (TA) have become more and more prominent in the classroom with the main role being to support the teacher in providing the best educational experience for their pupils. This could involve anything from covering a class, to teaching small groups or individuals with specific needs. No school or classroom is the same, therefore, it is really important to have a good understanding of the role and understand what might be expected of you.
This training session will look at a typical day and secure your understanding of roles and responsibilities required to fulfill this position. We are committed to ensuring that you feel confident in the classroom enabling you to support and empower children with their learning.
This 2 hour session is fun and interactive with an emphasis on group interaction, in preparation for the classroom.
Safeguarding is the process of working to protect individuals from harm such as abuse, neglect and exploitation. It ensures children grow up with safe and effective care and are given the best life chances.
Closely related, child protection is the process of working to help children who have already experienced harm in the form of violence, abuse, neglect or exploitation.
The aim of this interactive training is to offer a more ‘hands-on’ approach to developing an understanding of these processes in schools, with clear reference to how this relates to your role and responsibilities within your setting. The opportunity and time for discussion is an invaluable aspect to these sessions.
Team Teach is an award-winning 'positive handling' training program which helps staff support pupils with challenging behaviour. It is a 2 day accredited course based on risk reduction involving de-escalation strategies and positive behaviour management, diversion and distraction & as a last resort, physical intervention.
Where possible the expectation is that course members will exhaust all positive behavioural management strategies before resorting to physical intervention. If this intervention is required Team Teach promotes a ‘caring’ ‘holistic’ approach with an emphasis on listening and learning, recovery and repair. Pupils will feel safe and protected.
As well as building your confidence in the classroom, on completion of this 2 day course, members will be suitably equipped to deal with challenging situations that may arise in their setting. There will be a small fee for this training.
