Staff at the school have completed 'Team Teach' training through a whole setting holistic approach to reduce restraint and risk. Team-Teach has been established in the Asia-Pacific for a number of years and has successfully trained staff from a wide range of education, health and care settings.There have been around 8000 people been trained and with a network of over 150 Tutors.
The training has evolved from a residential care, education and health background working with service users with a variety of emotional, social, behavioural, learning, communication and medical needs.
Team-Teach prefers to employ a whole staff holistic approach with a follow up post repair, reflect & de-brief response for both staff and service users concerned. Emphasis is placed on "calm" communication and defusing skills that work best for the specific individual concerned. There is an emphasis on individual human rights, responsibilities, choices and consequences.
The key message being that 95% OR MORE of all incidents should be managed without recourse to physical interventions. Following training there should be a decrease in the amount of incidents involving the use of physical interventions. The emphasis is on protecting and promoting positive relationships between service providers and users.
