Managing Behaviour for Learning is a continuing professional development (CPD) course designed for teachers of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects, focusing mainly on the context of UK secondary schools and colleges.
Although the course draws from examples experienced in the UK, the material covered is relevant to an international audience and to non-STEM teachers.
