Explore... Positive Behaviours for Learning

Exclusively available for Stagecoach Performing Arts practitioners and ADPA teaching diploma delegates to support creating positive behaviours for learning in the Performing Arts Classroom. It's all about relationships! This three hour exploration (with one hour of personal reflection and development off-line) helps to develop skills in supporting collaborative (and fun!) face to face and online teaching with a positive ethos for learning. 

We love to support our students in being the best versions of themselves - that's what building Creative Courage for Life is all about. This session gives ideas for developing your own strategies to build strong relationships quickly to support the best group dynamics, positive vibes for great performing arts sessions!

Subjects covered in this session include:

  • Planning effective grouping and classroom organisation
  • Positive and preventative strategies
  • Keeping students safe
  • Engaging starters, plenaries and energisers
  • Family liaison and difficult conversations
