Module Overview
Module One: Building relationships with students This module focuses on developing effective relationships with students. This is core to creating a positive and productive atmosphere in a classroom, where participation is encouraged, students feel valued, and they understand what is expected of them both in terms of behaviour and work.
Module Two: Behaviour for learning This module focuses on students developing the right mindset to engage positively with their learning. Underpinning the idea are key relationships that need to be ensured and maintained: relationship with their peers, themselves, their teachers and the curriculum.
Module Three: Managing challenging behaviour This module focuses on creating the right conditions in the classroom to minimise the risk of problems with behaviour developing in the first place. When, despite this, challenging behaviour does occur, the trainee learns core strategies for dealing with that behaviour calmly and effectively.
Module Four: Whole school approaches to behaviour management This final module explores the importance of enforcing a whole school behaviour policy, and actively seeking to improve young peoples’ positive engagement with school through positive reinforcement, calling out below standard behaviour, and modelling positive behaviours.

Course Structure

This Classroom Management course uses a ‘scenario-based learning’ approach to enable you to reflect on realistic school-based scenarios, consider how you might respond, and receive real-time, tailored feedback from experienced teachers. It is designed to support your continued professional learning by facilitating your engagement with a range of situations you may encounter in your own classroom in a virtual environment.

Get started

Once enrolled, participants will be sent an activation email. This will allow them to create a TSP account and access the course through the dashboard.


Each module includes five scenarios where beginning teachers will view the scenario, rate the appropriateness of three possible responses and write a brief rationale for each. Next, they find out how experienced teachers rated each response and most importantly why.

Feedback reports

Feedback reports at the end of each module show new teachers their overall alignment with experienced teachers and include resources, readings and strategies for practice.


Once participants complete the course, they will be able to download a comprehensive report as well as a certificate of completion.

Track progress

Organisations can login to track participant progress, identify individuals in need of additional support and evaluate the effectiveness of the course by viewing individual and collective data.
