Coventry University program

Behaviour and Classroom Management

This program will help you to develop the skills you’ll need to facilitate positive learning behaviour in a classroom setting.

This program is part of the Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) degree offered by Coventry University

Learn to establish a positive classroom environment which leads to quality learning and pupil progress

This program aims to enhance your knowledge and understanding of a number of key principles of educational psychology, neuroscience and contemporary educational theory.

It will give you the tools you’ll need to critically reflect on how children learn, what influences behaviour, and what strategies are most effective in a real-world teaching environment, and you’ll be given the opportunity to demonstrate that you can inspire, motivate and challenge pupils, adapt your teaching to respond to their strengths and needs, and manage behaviour to ensure a safe learning environment.
