After months of uncertainty, we are grateful to be able to hold our DES-approved ABLE4Teachers summer training course in person this year.
‘ABLE4Teachers – How and Why Relationships Matter in Schools’ is a five-day course running from the 16th – 20th August at Northridge House Education & Training Centre in Blackrock, Cork.
There are just 15 places available, in line with our small group learning experience approach. Bookings are now open via Cork Education Support Centre (CESC) and the subsidised fee is just €50.
Based on our ABLE (Adopt, Build, Listen & Empower) brief intervention model, our course supports teachers, principals, SNAs, HSCLs and all school staff to take a relationship-centred approach while also managing their time and boundaries for their own wellbeing.
Dr Maeve Hurley, founder of Ag Eisteacht, said: “There are moments of opportunity in every school day when knowing how to engage sensitively and respond appropriately will foster better relationships throughout the whole school community. Just listening actively and showing compassion can make a difference, particularly for those who have experienced adversity.
”Given all of the challenges of the Covid19 pandemic, there has never been a better time to support school staff’s understanding of the transformative power of positive relationships at school. Our DES-approved ABLE4Teachers training gives staff the framework, tools and confidence to manage conflict and respond to signals of distress from parents, colleagues and pupils using our brief intervention model.”
ABLE4Teachers training shares evidence-informed insight into the impact family relationships, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), early brain development, conflict and toxic stress have on children’s health and well-being.
Dr Maeve Hurley said: “We welcome this opportunity to connect, engage and relate together on a real human level and in a safe and compliant environment at Northridge House this coming August.”
98% of previous participants said they would recommend ABLE4Teachers to a colleague. (From our 2016-2019 course evaluation).
