class08.jpg(CNS): Teachers from schools across Grand Cayman have been expanding their own education with a specialist training programme that helps educators influence positive behaviour in school. The National Programme for Specialist Leaders in Behaviour and Attendance (NPSLBA) is designed to be a catalyst for positive change in school. The18 month long training programme was developed in the UK by the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) for all professionals in the field of behaviour and attendance and was rolled out here in February 2009.

Handing out certificates for their participation in the NPSLBA course recently the Minister of Education Rolston Anglin said the programme is a step in bringing quality education to Cayman’s young people. “By equipping our teachers with the tools and resources they need to provide the best classroom experience for all students, we are creating an environment of consistent learning,” he said.

Sean Cahill, the policy advisor for behaviour said the NPSLBA has not only provided local staff with a rich learning experience, but it has equipped them to work effectively with colleagues in influencing the working practices that will support improved outcomes for our most challenging students.

Throughout the Cayman Islands, participants have been responsible for taking the lead on initiatives such as ensuring that school based discipline and student behaviour policies are in place across both the primary and secondary sectors, developing and implementing support systems for students displaying behavioural Difficulties, delivering training on conflict and confrontation, and developing rewards and incentives to promote positive behaviour.
