Relationship First Aid for Teachers
The central aim of the programme is to help teachers develop the skills to most effectively support the school community.
The course looks at attachment from early childhood through to adulthood and how this impacts upon a child’s ability to form secure relationships.
Conflict, stigma and judgements shape those attachments throughout a child’s life. This course helps teachers develop their skills to more effectively support pupils.
Each course is suitable for both Primary and Secondary school teachers as well as learning support staff and student teachers/probationary teachers.

Relationship First Aid for Teachers – course description
This course is an experiential skills-based programme designed to help teachers and support staff gain a better understanding of relationship issues often presented by school children.
The course will look specifically at how the challenges pupils face impact on their relationships. Participants will also consider how pupils communicate with teachers and why they react in certain ways.
Emotional and behavioural issues impact upon a child’s ability to learn effectively. Relationship First Aid aims to equip teachers with the skills to respond to relationship issues in the classroom and correspondingly see a positive impact on learning and attainment.
