• Understanding children and young people and developing positive approaches to their behaviour

    Certified Training for Schools and Education

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

    Award-winning training that creates long-lasting organisational change

    Maybo recognises the challenges and pressures schools are experiencing and we have created a comprehensive training curriculum that gives schools greater flexibility in how to develop staff skills in supporting children and young people who may present a range of needs and behaviours.

    By working together to understand your needs and requirements, we will identify the best blend of online and course based training modules and personal safety planning tools to help you create positive learning environments where pupils and staff feel safe and secure.

    Maybo was one of the first organisations to evidence compliance with the Restraint Reduction Network (RRN) Training Standards and we can offer training Certified by BILD ACT to Schools that meet requirements. Our Trainer Training is also Accredited by City & Guilds.

    • 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.

    • Maybo’s ‘Open Palms’ non-verbal communication signal has made a real difference in the way our staff are managing difficult situations.

    • The response from our teaching team has been very positive: all staff enjoyed the Maybo sessions and said that they had learned useful and practical skills. Teachers who had been through a variety of other trainings said that this was the best that they had attended.

    • Our team walked away with some new “tactics” so to speak on how to react and respond when situations arise. It was great that the Trainer was able to apply the strategies and training in relation to our day to day encounters. It was easy to relate to, with various real life examples and scenarios.

    • Springboard would like to thank the Maybo team for delivering training to us. It was very useful, the feedback was very positive, and the trainer was excellent.

    • 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!

    • 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?’.
