What is Team Teach?

Team Teach is a training course which explores the verbal and non-verbal aspects of behaviour management. The course explains what is meant by terms like “reasonable force” and when it is appropriate to use physical intervention. In addition to this, delegates are trained how to use restraint techniques. It should be made clear that this is considered a last-resort and the Team Teach course aims to give candidates a tool kit of strategies and techniques they can use before force should ever be considered. Team Teach aims to actually REDUCE the overall need for restraint or use of force in schools – not to promote it.

Why does Axcis offer Team Teach training? 

We are often contacted by schools who require Team Teach trained staff. This is because in many SEND schools, it is an unfortunate reality that advanced behaviour management training, and very occasionally restraint training can be required. We want our staff to be able to do this in a consistent, safe manner as is reflected by the schools we work with. Team Teach can be an expensive course to attend (up to £200 for the two days depending on the provider). This can be prohibitive for teachers and teaching assistants due to the cost, but also the term-time days on which many training courses are run. At Axcis, we regularly offer the course at a hugely discounted price (we simply aim to cover the cost of the venue and training materials) and in school holidays. Training is usually run at our client schools, which can be a huge benefit to those who have worked there as they already know their way around (as well as how to get there!) It should be noted that once you receive Team Teach training, the certificate awarded is only valid for 2 years. After that you must undertake a refresher in order to continue using the techniques you learn.

Is this course right for me?

At Axcis, we pride ourselves on offering high-quality, relevant training which will genuinely enhance your employment prospects. We run numerous Team Teach courses throughout the year as part of our candidate CPD programme. To be considered for a place, you should be registered with Axcis (or about to register) and want to work in a long-term supply position at a school where these techniques will be necessary.  This generally means you must have an interest in working with students who are likely to exhibit challenging or confrontational behaviour, potentially escalating to a need to physically intervene. Your consultant can advise you on whether they feel the course will benefit you or not if you are not sure whether it’s right for your own personal CPD pathway.


Please note: Places are limited and as a result, we are unable to confirm your attendance until payment is received. The cost of the course is non-refundable and all charges are put towards the running of the event. No profit is generated from our training courses.
