Programme Summary

The course is aimed at teachers (primary, secondary, vocational, university, adult, special needs) and teacher trainers. The course will provide an opportunity for teachers to refresh their knowledge on managing and communicating with various target groups, creating a warm and open learning atmosphere, as well as preventing and dealing with problems and conflict situations that may arise.

The focus is placed on practical examples and training activities in which the participants can analyse their usual classroom management styles and employ new strategies for controlling group dynamics. This will make carrying out lessons easier for participants, enable better learner-teacher and learner relationships, as well as increase learner motivation.

Participants will also have the opportunity to observe, reflect, discuss, and exchange their experiences and examples of good practice with other teachers.


After completing the course, participants will be able to:

  • employ various communication strategies and styles
