Engaging Learners and Managing Challenging Behaviours in the FET Classroom (Autumn 2023)

This session will cover the two topics outlined below.

Engaging Learners in the FET Classroom
The Further Education classroom consists of learners with a wide diversity of abilities and life experiences. This can present significant challenges to teachers/tutors/instructors to support the best possible learning environment where all learners can flourish.

Effective Learning in the Further Education Classroom. This session will:
• Offer participants a forum to reflect on approaches to learning and teaching in the Further Education classroom.
• Explore practical strategies to support differentiated teaching of a diverse learning cohort.
• Facilitate the sharing of current successful practice

Managing Challenging Behaviour in the FET Classroom
Working in the Further Education sector presents teachers/tutors/instructors with a broad range of challenges. Learners present with broad levels of motivation and a range of social, emotional and behavioural issues. These add to the complexity of the classroom context in which FE teachers practice. This session will offer practical strategies to help equip teachers to respond to the behaviours encountered daily. It will also give teachers an opportunity to share and learn from each other.

The target audience for this event is: All FET staff members, primarily for teachers/tutors/instructors and it will also be useful for those in a co-ordination and/or quality assurance role.

Facilitation: This event will be facilitated by Harry Freeman. Harry currently works as an independent education consultant. From 2002 – 2015 he worked with the Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST), where his primary role was that of national advisor to the Leaving Certificate Applied Programme.
