Update on the Programme

An updated version of the highly regarded Coaches Programme will be available in April. The 3 day programme has been extended to further support and enhance the transference of learning into the workplace. 

Coaches will have a workplace assignment to complete and will attend a 4th day after 6 months to present on the progress of their action plan and workplace project. 

Successful Coaches will be placed to support the development and maintenance of good practice that impacts PBS positively on everyone’s quality of life. 

All Coaches are invited to join the network of CAPBS Coaches where peer and expert support is available to support successful implementation of PBS, continuing professional development, collaborative working and practice sharing. 


An intensive programme for practitioners with some practical experience of positive behaviour support who would like to extend their knowledge and support the implementation of a positive behaviour support approach within their organisation.

This 3 day (plus a workplace assignment 1 day follow up in 6 months) residential programme will provide participants with the opportunity to discuss the current context of PBS and the specific elements of a PBS approach, as well as what should be in a behaviour support plan, restrictive practices and how to embed PBS within services and organisations.

The focus will be on supporting colleagues in the workplace to understand the main concepts and make changes to practice that will impact positively on the people being supported.

The programme will also cover the principles of coaching and participants will prepare and present a session plan for a key element of PBS.

This course will help people to meet competencies 3.1, 3.2, 3.4, 3.6, 3.7, 3.8, and 3.9 for direct care staff in the PBS Competency framework >
