Inclusion, Equality & Diversity

ALL TYPES AND LEVELS OF ROLE

This course is for all staff working in an educational setting, supporting them to understand both their own and their organisation’s responsibilities under the Equality Act 2010. We use our actors to bring to life different educational scenarios to show the impact of inappropriate interactions and behaviours, and explore how we can all contribute to creating an inclusive, respectful working and learning environment.

Inclusion, Equality & Diversity with a focus on Race

ALL TYPES AND LEVELS OF ROLE

This version of our Inclusion, Equality & Diversity course has been developed for educational settings facing specific challenges around Race and Ethnicity. Our actors showcase a variety of different educational scenarios where unconscious bias, assumptions, unintentional comments and banter result in negative experiences and further issues for students. We explore how we can manage situations differently, committing to an inclusive, respectful working and learning environment.

Mental Health Awareness

ALL TYPES AND LEVELS OF ROLE

In the workplace, mental health problems are a leading cause of absence with a staggering 70 million working days lost in the UK each year. Education is a high-pressure environment requiring resilience and strength on physical, emotional and mental levels in order to support our students, parents, colleagues and ourselves effectively. In this theatre-based learning session, we use actors to focus on some educationally based scenarios where the importance of mental wellbeing might not be recognised, and blend theory with practical tools for delegates to support their own and other’s mental good health.

Getting Stuff Done

ALL TYPES AND LEVELS OF ROLE

The teaching day might finish at 3pm but most people working in education know that the day certainly does not end there! With a variety of deadline-sensitive responsibilities and ever-changing duties in reaction to individual students’ needs, working in education means you need to be an expert in prioritising and managing your own time. This course is packed full of different time management tools, allowing delegates to determine which techniques work best for them.

Brave Conversations

ALL TYPES AND LEVELS OF ROLE

There are times when all of us need to have difficult conversations, be it with a student, a parent, a colleague or a direct report, and it’s important that we get the right message across as it might be our only chance to do so. In this interactive, theatre-based session, we explore different approaches to help educational employees deliver difficult messages with empathy and skill, supporting good communication and positive relationships.

First Steps Into Management ILM Endorsed Programme

MANAGERIAL ROLES

In education, people are often promoted into positions of responsibility, heading up teams or departments due to their specialist subject knowledge or length of experience. Whilst these skills are invaluable, often people management skills and experience are overlooked, and so we end up with the ‘accidental manager’ – which doesn’t bode well for the individual, team or organisation. This programme aims to banish the accidental manager, giving delegates a solid grounding in the skills needed to successfully manage others, and has been endorsed by the ILM as a high quality training programme.

Coaching and Mentoring

MANAGERIAL ROLES

Experienced education professionals are often called upon to support less experienced members of staff or those currently completing professional training, and it can sometimes be challenging to do so without slipping into teacher-mode. This theatre-based learning course uses actors to explore a variety of coaching and mentoring techniques, using educational scenarios and real play, moving delegates away from a ‘tell’ approach and towards more engaging, empowering interactions that encourage individuals to become more self-aware.

Mental Health Awareness and Your Role as a Leader

MANAGERIAL ROLES

This course is specifically designed for employees who manage others, and builds on the Mental Health Awareness course (which must be attended first – we can deliver both courses together as a one-day workshop if preferred). In it, we use our actors to explore a variety of education-based scenarios where managers will need to support others with their mental health concerns, mixing theatre-based learning with theory and practical tools, enabling delegates to focus on how to lead a culture which encourages mental wellbeing.

Emotional Intelligence

MANAGERIAL ROLES

Working in education can present a myriad of situations every day that pull on the emotions, and often these emotions drive behaviour that negatively affects performance, interactions with others and working relationships. This course supports managers to increase their self-awareness, improving their emotional intelligence to help them make better choices rather than reacting unconsciously.

rebuilding team dynamics

Rebuilding Team Dynamics

MANAGERIAL ROLES

Social distancing restrictions, student bubbles, self-isolation and furlough have changed the dynamics of educational teams and the staff-room is no longer able to provide the supportive, collaborative environment it once did. This course supports managers with practical tools to rebuild post-covid 19 educational teams to move forwards during challenging times.

Inspirational Leadership

EDUCATIONAL SENIOR LEADERSHIP

Leading an educational organisation requires resilience, integrity, competence and confidence. In this course, specifically designed for senior leaders, we explore what an inspirational and highly effective leader looks like, and increase delegates’ self-awareness to support the fulfilment of their own, others, and the organisation’s potential.

ted Education is from the team who brought you ted Learning and delivers dramatically different, engaging and fun learning specifically designed for the Educational Sector. Our courses have teachers, lecturers and support staff in mind when we design them.
0.2How do you deliver your training?
ted Education uses drama based learning to create a real experience in the classroom. We use actors playing the roles of students, teachers/lecturers & support staff in various scenarios. This enables learners to observe and experience the situation. We then discuss the content and its impact and help come up with solutions on how we might approach the situation differently moving forward. We don't use role-play we use real-play - our actors play the roles, we only ever ask learners to be themselves and contribute through discussion or interaction and direction with our actors. We deliver training via the classroom, virtual classroom and online learning. So however your team want to learn, we have a solution for you.
0.3Why type of training do you offer?
All of our training is focused on and written for people working in an educational setting. Designed by teachers FOR teachers and with all staff in mind, we wanted to create content that was fun, engaging, thought provoking and different. We work with younger actors to play the roles of students along with our corporate actors to play other roles. Our experienced trainers deliver courses including Inclusion, Equality & Diversity in education (this course has a specific focus on the educational world), mental health awareness, getting stuff done (which focuses on effective time management), brave conversations, coaching and mentoring and emotional intelligence to name a few. All of our training is practical and interactive to ensure an experience that appeals to the sense of feeling as well as seeing and hearing.
0.4How is this tailored for Education?
All of our courses have been delivered for many years through our ted Learning brand and we have re-written every one for an educational setting. Our business is run by qualified teachers who have years of teaching and L&D experience and wanted to create products that worked in an educational environment. All are designed to fit in with the busy lives that teachers and support staff face and are bite-size or half day and can be combined with inset days. We use younger actors to play the roles of students so we can create a real environment and we work with each school or college to understand the specific challenges and make sure the course is completely bespoke. Whilst the structure of our courses are there, each one is delivered to you and for you. We are a multichannel business so can deliver all our training products in a method that suits your organisation, whether it be large staff events (perfect for inset days), in bite-sized chunks using video-conferencing software in our virtual classroom (perfect if the team are based in multiple locations or need to fit training in between other commitments), or via online learning (ideal for individual any-time training to work around busy teaching schedules.
