Professional Development News: Learner Support

 “One of the best CPD courses I have ever been involved in.” Participant Evaluator, vMCB Pilot, June 2013.

vmcb logo for blogManaging Challenging Behaviour (vMCB) is a new course delivered entirely online using a combination of live, interactive classroom sessions and on-going coursework.

If you’ve ever wondered how psychological theory informs the practical, day-to-day strategies used to manage behaviour – this is the course for you!

Aimed at learning facilitators from a range of support settings, (e.g. learning assistants, mentors, teaching staff, employability coaches) the course costs £270 and is delivered over 9 sessions for a period of 3 months.

The next scheduled vMCB course starts in January 2014, but may be available sooner if you have a group of employees or colleagues ready to start.
