Professional Certificate in Education (Positive Behaviour and Learning)

What will I study?


The course provides you with practical opportunities to investigate functional relationships between environment, learning and behaviour. You will be asked to reflect critically on classroom implications for promoting positive learning and behaviour in professional practice.

There is a particular focus on curriculum approaches to support students with additional needs, and on the function of challenging behaviour.
