What You’ll Get:
Join over 600 other school staff who have completed our online professional development courses.
I created these online courses for school staff because of my experience as a high school teacher and school counsellor.
This year we launched our online courses, and over 600 school staff have completed our online Professional Development training.
I created these courses from my experience as a high school teacher (10 years) and school counsellor (3 years) currently in private practice.
I know that working in a school environment is highly demanding and stressful. Teachers and other staff have high burn out rates and less and less time available to meet increasing demands.
I’m receiving more and more requests to run my professional development courses in schools, but it’s impossible to get to every school, especially when most schools have set dates for Professional Development. I had to say no to 8 schools who wanted the same date in July this year!
Not only that, but it’s also difficult to fit in all the travel demands for school staff in regional and rural areas.
Now your staff don’t need to travel, you don’t need to cover them with extras because staff can access high quality relevant training and continued support via our online library of professional development courses for school staff.
The beauty about these online courses is that staff can watch the video content in their online library and then join our monthly coaching calls live online where I present a 10 minute content piece then answer specific questions and help staff implement the strategies they cover in the online training.
What’s in each of the 3 courses?
