UK PBS Alliance Schools Community of Practice
The UK PBS Alliance Schools community of practice aims to share good practice of implementing positive behaviour support (PBS) in education settings. We welcome anyone who is interested in implementing positive behaviour support in schools settings, whether you are new to the PBS framework of support or have many years’ experience in PBS.
At our last event, many community of practice members highlighted how relationships form the bedrock of effective positive behaviour support (PBS).
Join us for this next event which will discuss building positive staff-student relationships, and implementing capable environments using practice leadership.
Jude Mortell (Ambitious About Autism) will invite community members to think about what positive staff-student relationships look and feel like in education settings and she will share some of the constructs and models used as part of the Ambitious Approach (Ambitious About Autism’s SW-PBS Framework).
Linked to this, Jude will talk about the emotional labour involved in creating and maintaining positive relationships and ways to guard against potential negative impacts on staff well-being.
We’re pleased to welcome Linda Hume, Nadia Khan and Martin Reilly, who will present their paper from Tizard Learning Disability Review titled ‘Building capable environments using practice leadership’.
Linda, Nadia and Martin will talk about how their approach to implementing capable environments using practice leadership demonstrates the usefulness of the capable environment’s framework as a model for training and development of support planning. As a result of this innovative approach, it was found that staff provided more positive interaction and support.
As well as these excellent presentations, there will be opportunity to interact with one another in discussion groups, and to ask questions you might have.
