Our mission is to support individuals and organisations in moving beyond behaviour management; using strategies that lower risk, build relationships, minimise physical intervention, and create positive environments.

For over 25 years, Team Teach has been a pioneer in behaviour support training for the education, health, and social care sectors.

Whether you are an educator, health, or social care professional, we carefully consider the unique situations you may encounter, the nature of support you provide, and the common challenges you face. This enables us to deliver practical and impactful training that reduces risk and drives real change.

We believe that everyone should have access to our accredited, award-winning professional development in positive behaviour support and behaviour de-escalation training. Our training empowers individuals, teams and organisations with the necessary tools and skills to effectively support behaviour in a positive and respectful manner.

Since 1997, we have taken immense pride in equipping over 300,000 individuals and 13,000 organisations across 25 countries with the necessary tools to transform the lives of the children, young people and adults they support and work with.

  • Respectful
  • Supportive

Our Approach

We foster a culture of support, helping people recognise the needs of those they work with, offer help where necessary, and be able to make use of support when offered.

Team Teach has developed strategies to move beyond behaviour management.

These strategies promote team building, personal safety, communication, and verbal and non-verbal de-escalation techniques. These techniques support behaviours, reducing risk and minimising the need for physical intervention.

We believe that understanding behaviour triggers and recognising all behaviour as a form of communication is key, and in some settings, where appropriate, offer safe, respectful and minimal physical intervention skills as a last resort, with an emphasis on de-escalation strategies being 95% of our focus.

We see this as just one part of a whole-setting approach to behaviour support and help services develop acceptable, appropriate, authorised responses to distressed and dysregulated behaviours. These responses maintain positive relationships and ensure safety for all. As such, our framework is entirely compatible with Positive Behavioural Support (PBS) approaches for people with learning disabilities.

Additionally, all training emphasizes the importance of recording, reporting, monitoring, and evaluating of all incidents.

All Team Teach positive handling techniques have undergone a medical review carried out by independent medical experts, as required by the Institute of Conflict Management.

Team Teach are certified by the BILD ACT Association of Certified Training, complying with the Restraint Reduction Network Training Standards, a requirement for NHS commissioned services.

The course materials for our positive behaviour training programmes have been independently assessed and accredited by the CPD Accreditation Service.

Our government-supported National Training Award recognises exceptional achievement in training and development, with robust quality control and assurance processes.
