Teacher feedback

  • "Outstanding masterclass" Real Consequences, Real Change

    "This course was fantastic and so informative. The Power Hour provided a really in-depth foundation to restorative practice and the resources provided with this were outstanding. Claire is a fantastic presenter and so passionate about what she does. I can't wait to continue developing my practice with more masterclasses." Leah Grantham

  • "Fantastic" Addressing Low-Level Behaviour through Non Verbal Classroom Management

    "I have been a teacher for 20+ years but recently I started to feel like I just was losing my touch with my classroom management skills. So I took a chance and I took this course. I am SO GLAD I did!! The content helped me so much and today I came in with a different body posture and attitude. I waited for EVERYONE to be on task and I used proximity to diffuse problems!! I feel like a different person!!! THANK YOU, Claire!!! I loved it!!" Debbie Watts

  • "A real gem" Real Consequences, Real Change

    "I cannot express in enough words how brilliant this is. Not only does Claire talk you through the strategies in her 'power hour' but the resources she has provided allow you to go deeper and really get to grips with this in your practice. I am just not very good at 'dealing' with behaviour in the more traditional sense. This however, I can already feel will make a huge difference to my classroom. Allowing students to grow and learn not just in my subject but about themselves as well. If you have to deal with conflict outside of the classroom, Claire gives scripts and strategies that work, if you have to deal with disruptive behaviour, again there are scripts and strategies. If you are new to teaching or even if you aren't, I cannot recommend this highly enough." Kathryn Faulkner

  • "Highly recommended!" Addressing Low-Level Behaviour through Non Verbal Classroom Management

    "I highly recommend this course for both new and experienced teachers. I am in my 13th year of teaching and feel like challenging student behaviour will be why I leave the profession; this course is just what I needed to get back on track. I feel like I now have some new strategies to help me deal with low-level behaviour issues in my classroom, and I am hopeful that I can begin to enjoy teaching again in the future." Lisa Kemp

  • "Quick, accessible, practical - brilliant!" Real Consequences, Real Change

    "For an hour-long session, I can't believe how many practical ideas this masterclass provided. It was really generous with ideas and absolutely flew by! I'm a career-changer about to begin teacher training and hoped the session would give me some top tips that even a novice, like me, could access but I didn't expect to come away with so many useful resources too. Your masterclass left me feeling even more excited to start my training. Thank you Claire!" Melanie Worgan

  • "Great class!!"

    "I have been teaching for 25 years and I loved and got a lot out of this class!! When I read the description of the class, “whack-a-mole low level behaviors” I knew this was the class for me. I took the class Sunday and put the ideas into practice on Monday! I SERIOUSLY had a completely different class when I used these techniques!! I highly recommend this course whether you are a first year teacher or a veteran looking for a refresher course!!" Gregg Watts
