The National Programme for Specialist Leaders of Behaviour and Attendance is a one-year course which is open to any staff who come into contact with pupils. It is designed to spread good practice in changing challenging behaviour. Learning mentor Lisa Robertson from Washington School is part-way through the course; Science teacher Kathryn Forster from Southmoor Community School completed the qualification recently. Lisa is seen leading an intercessional activity with a group of pupils described by an assistant head as 'the worst offenders' in behaviour terms and feeding back to her mentor on the school's leadership team. Course graduate Kathryn Forster speaks about how the qualification has increased her confidence when confronted by poor behaviour and how she has managed to implement some of its techniques across the whole school.
