Working With Children and Young People Training Course - Unit 2 - Managing Challenging Behaviour

  • Leeds City Centre (Venue TBC) Leeds

Course overview

Our Working with Children and Young People training course is an entry level programme that will provide a basic understanding of the principles for working with children and young people. The course is made up of four discrete units of learning, each of which can be purchased separately. Each unit consists of five hours of training over a single day (four days for all four units). As such, participants are free to book the four days of training either consecutively, or in blocks to suit their personal requirements and schedule. However, we would recommend that participants who wish to access all four units should do so over a period of no longer than six months in order to ensure continuity within the training themes.

Target Audiences

We will provide you with all the knowledge and skills potential employers and organisations that work with children, young people and families will be looking for in their employees and volunteers. Our course is suited to those already in the children's workforce and those completely new to it, such as:

  • School support staff
  • Parents and carers
  • Those leaving the armed forces
  • Those looking to volunteer or gain employment in the charity sector
  • Those running community groups
  • Those looking to work in the childcare sector.

Unit 2 - Managing Challenging Behaviour

This unit is all about understanding the causes of challenging behaviour in the context of child development and exploring strategies for working with children and young people that display challenging behaviours. 

  • Identifying positive and challenging behaviours 
  • Ages and stages - child development in context
  • Rules, rewards and sanctions
  • Effective behaviour management strategies 
  • Skills for working with children and young people
  • Developing a career working with children and young people

The Managing Challenging Behaviour course will provide participants with new skills and equip you with the basic understanding you need to enter into a role (paid or voluntary) working with children and young people.
