Mike

Team Teach Trainer, M&H Trainer

I have worked at Gibside School for nearly a decade and in that time, I have worked across the breadth of the school and with a range of age groups and have loved having the privilege of working with such a diverse mix of children. The aspect of this job that I find most rewarding is building relationships that allow me to make meaningful connections with the children I work with, and seeing them achieve important communication milestones that open up the world to them.

I am a certified Team Teach trainer with 5 years of experience delivering accredited behaviour support courses and I am passionate about effective holistic behaviour support which maximises children’s opportunities to be successful. I have recently completed a national qualification in leading behaviour and culture in schools (NPQLBC) and I am trained to oversee, support and train staff in Moving and Handling procedures and legislation.
