    Maybo training helps staff, pupils and parents to benefit from positive and safer learning environments

    Award-winning training that creates long-lasting organisational change

    Schools can become extremely high pressured, stressful environments that can cause pupils, parents or even staff to act out of character. 

    If poorly managed, minor incidents can quickly escalate into aggressive and challenging behaviour, which can represent a safety risk to staff and pupils, as well as potentially damaging the reputation of your school.

    Our comprehensive training curriculum aims to ensure that you have the effective policies and controls in place to safeguard your staff and provide them with the awareness and skills that are required to prevent and manage challenging behaviours.

    From positive communication skills, to how best to support children with additional needs, by working together to understand your needs and requirements we can develop bespoke training programmes that will help to create long-lasting positive change in your school, so that staff and children can benefit from positive and safer environments.

    • Before our Maybo training, the trend was to escort pupils demonstrating challenging behaviour to a less public place to deal with the issue, which often caused the negative behaviour to increase. Maybo's Open Palms approach gives a calming message that pupils will not be held or lead away and the incident is now more often calmed and dealt with without aggression.

    • Our staff team absolutely loved the training and found it to be the most useful and thought-provoking training they had ever been on. One person said ‘why did we not have this 30 years ago when I started?’.

    • The relevance of the training to children being first and foremost was utmost in our minds when we commissioned this package for our teams. The language use and the way of thinking about impact and understanding has been amazing. There is a real buzz in our residential homes and people keep asking for more!
