Teacher Classroom Management


Teacher Classroom Management is part of the Incredible Years suite of programmes that has been developed by Carolyn Webster-Stratton in Seattle over the past 30 years.

What is Teacher Classroom Management?

The Teacher Classroom Management Training Programme comprises 6 full-day workshops running at 3-4 week intervals during the school year. The programme is focused on strengthening teacher classroom management strategies, promoting children’s pro-social behaviour and reducing classroom aggression and non cooperation with peers and teachers. The programme can be useful for teachers, teacher assistants, psychologists, school counsellors, and any school personnel working with young children.

Who is it for?
Teachers and other school staff including resource teachers and, in some circumstances, special needs assistants. It is very useful for school principals to attend in order to understand the programme and provide support to teachers.

How is it going to work?
The training involves 6 full day workshops delivered at 3-4 week intervals usually during school term-time.

What are the benefits?
The Teacher Classroom Management (TCM) programme has been shown to bring about significant changes in classroom behaviour for primary school children.

These changes lead to a more productive classroom environment where teachers are more relaxed and confident and children acquire improved social skills, are more emotionally aware.
