Motivating the Demotivated (ECTs)

Event code SCH 22/338 
Event description It has been said that the primary reason given over the years by teachers who sadly leave the profession is feeling that they cannot manage a whole class. This session begins by looking at possibly the main reason (there are many others) why children and young people misbehave – a lack of motivation...”what’s the point?” Beginning with a simple look at how the human race is motivated, we then transfer this to the classroom to see simple but profoundly important behavioural strategies for ensuring that students are motivated from the moment they arrive at the classroom till the moment that they leave it.

This session is one of our 4 ONLINE Primary Programme modules. Each event is bookable individually and schools in the SLA will receive 1 free place per session. The focus for each of the 4 Primary Programme events is outlined below:
