Whāraurau invites you to register your interest to attend

Online five-session TCM training workshop for delivery of the Incredible Years® Teacher Programme

Facilitated by Kathleen, Incredible Years Inc.

This workshop is intended for professionals who will be delivering the Incredible Years® Teacher Programme and is the first step in developing group leader skills to deliver the IY TCM Programme to educators of children aged 4- to 8-years.

Teachers find themselves spending increasing amounts of time attending to students’ aggressive, hyperactive and non-compliant behaviours in the classroom. If these behaviours are ignored, or if teachers give them negative attention, they will continue to increase, leading to eventual school failure and antisocial behaviour. The Teacher Classroom Management Programme aims to provide teachers with the skills to effectively manage their classroom and promote children’s social, emotional, and academic competence.
