Our expertise in behaviour management is drawn from over seventeen years’ working with children with Special Educational Needs in the context of Alternative Provision.
Developed as an alternative to standard CPD models of behaviour management training offered to mainstream teachers and classroom assistants, our accredited suite of qualifications range from an online Level 2 course to a Level 5 Diploma. Our research and training in behaviour management has been developed as a response to increasing levels of school exclusion in the UK.

MCB Level 3 – From an admin’s perspective
"The thought of spending two days in training was enough to send my brain into over drive. Just to add some context, I work as an administrator in a SEN School. To many people's disbelief, I do not enjoy staring at dull presentations and sitting in an awkward silence...

Including SEND students, not excluding
If you keep up to date with the latest SEND Education news, I am sure the latest article by The Guardian would have left you feeling aghast. With schools' ever-growing desire to be top of the league tables, more and more children with SEND are being encouraged to...
