Self-audit task

At the end of this step we ask you to complete a short survey to help us gauge your current thinking about managing behaviour for learning and your confidence with it.

Read these notes before you complete the self-audit survey:

  • Answer honestly about where you are now, not where you want to be.
  • There are no right or wrong answers.

Your honest answers will help you to identify what areas of practice you need to focus on the most as you progress through the course.

At the end of the course we will ask you the same questions: you can then compare your responses and see how much progress you have made. (See the bottom of this step for how to retain a copy of your responses.) This will also help us to understand the impact of this course more generally.

The statements from the survey are reproduced below:

  • I am careful about how I speak to students
  • I am consistent in managing behaviour
  • I tell students the rules for my teaching space (classroom/workshop/laboratory)
  • I plan what I am going to say to students in conversations about behaviour
  • I have excellent working relationships with other members of staff
  • I focus on rewarding good behaviour
  • I chase up students who miss deadlines and detentions
  • I stick to a stepped system of sanctions
  • I seek support and advice on dealing with students with challenging behaviour when I need it
  • I am confident at managing behaviour in practical lessons

Please go to the survey now and indicate your level of agreement with these statements. Feel free to discuss the statements via the comments on this step.

You are recommend to retain a copy of your responses. To do this at the end of the survey select ‘My reponses’:
