UK PBS Alliance Schools Community of Practice: Defining Positive Behaviour Support and the need for a distinctive model for UK schools
This free UK PBS Alliance Schools Community of Practice webinar will explore the refining and updating of a definition and scope for Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) with Dr Nick Gore, Senior Lecturer in Learning Disability at the Tizard Centre, University of Kent.
Hot on the heels of presenting this definition at last month’s International PBS Conference in Glasgow, the webinar will help attendees to develop a model of PBS for all schools.
Dr Gore will explain the update, exploring its differences and similarities to the PBIS (Schoolwide PBS) tiered model with attendees. In addition, during an exclusive event discussion, we will also look at how the definition can be made more accessible to school staff.
This webinar will be of interest to:
- Staff working in UK schools – particularly those interested in finding out more about how PBS can work in their setting
- Headteachers, deputy heads and those in leadership roles considering PBS in education settings
- Teachers and classroom assistants/teaching assistants
- Allied health professionals working in education, such as speech and language therapists, educational psychologists and occupational therapists
- Family members and parents of children with learning disabilities and/or autism
Following the keynote presentation, there will be a further opportunity for small group discussions in virtual breakout rooms, before we reunite for a special Q&A session with Dr Gore.
The webinar will be recorded, and made available online for Bild members to watch again.
Time: 4 – 5.30pm
Date: Wednesday 8 December 2021
