Behaviour Education Workshops are available for schools or clusters wanting to train their whole staff. Small schools can combine with others to make up numbers.
The one-day workshops require 20-50 participants and are broken into 3 × 1.5 hour sessions with breaks between each session for morning tea and lunch.
The workshops give educators a hands-on experience of the Play Is The Way® methodology. Attendees will participate in activities and games that illustrate the benefit of the Pathway To Empathy Virtues, Life Raft Concepts and reflective language. Through their own reactions, educators will discover why the games make a powerful tool for behaviour education.
The workshop is free of power point presentations and is filled with insights, observations and strategies.
Teachers don’t need to be sporty or fit to attend the workshop but simply be willing to play, enjoy and benefit. Just dress comfortably and reap the rewards.
