Course Outline

This course empowers teachers to use a newfound understanding of the role stress plays in teaching and learning experiences for their students. The practical tools gained by learning ‘high coherence’, the Restorative approach to classroom management and the adoption of strategies that lead to heart-rhythm coherence equip teachers with the skills to adjust programs and approaches where necessary to meet student needs.

In the ‘Stress-Proof’ classroom, an explicit set of expectations and carefully structured restorative processes and responses to discipline issues, allow for the management of challenging behaviour and for full engagement by students in their work. This approach addresses discipline issues as they arise in an inclusive, positive, fair and respectful way.

For proficient teachers:

Completing The Stress-Proof Classroom – A Coherent Restorative Approach to Classroom Management will contribute 6 hours of NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Registered PD addressing 4.1.2 and 4.3.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.

Teachers please note:

We will validate your attendance however, for your hours to appear on your record, you need to login in to NESA with your 6 digit number and do an evaluation for the hours to be counted.
