Lee does 3 sorts of Teacher Training / CPD / INSET
1. A motivational talk or workshop on resilience – to help staff with the day-to-day stresses and strains of working with young people in education. In his entertaining and encouraging style Lee really gets to the heart of the matter to encourage staff to Keep on Going in their vital work.
2. Why do teenagers (aka “screenagers”) act the way they do?
Wh[y] do the[y] do that?! Moody. Impulsive. Maddening. Rioters?
Knife crime, riots, hoodies and ASBOs are often all we hear about young people these days – but what is really going on in their heads, and how does their world affect their behaviour?
Lee is an expert on the world of young people and “Why Do They Do That?” is his popular staff / teacher training session on understanding young people. Lee’s advice on the worldview and behaviour of young people is a great chance for staff to understand and communicate with young people better than they do already.
The idea is simple. Many teachers simply aren’t trained to understand young people anymore, and those who have been in the job for many years need a refresher as their understanding of students is now out-of-date. Lee draws on his twenty years of experience working with and researching young people to shed much needed light on the workings of a teenage mind!
Why have teacher training on understanding teenagers?
Better understanding = better behaviour
Better behaviour = better results
Staff benefit enormously from this funny, honest and insightful presentation – a topic that very few people even dare to tackle. No long-winded death-by-powerpoint, but practical tools and insights to help us get the best out of our young people.
And thirdly Lee does Presentation Skills with senior teachers to upskill them in their talks at parents evenings / awards ceremonies and their day-to-day assemblies. Speaking in public isn’t easy for many, Lee helps staff to do it well to enhance their audiences experience.
“Lee Jackson has helped the staff here to gain a better understanding of how young people see themselves and their world. He has helped us to start developing a vocabulary with which to communicate with our pupils and a clearer understanding of the pressures that young people face and how these affect their ability to relate to peers, adults and the world around them.”
