"I have a very challenging class of 5 and 6year old students. We have implemented a reward system and individual students have their own behaviour plans. The students who are keen to learn are missing out as most of our time is taken up dealing with managing behaviour. This is exhausting and my Education Assistant was in tears on the last day of term just thinking about coming back. This course seems to be the light at the end of the tunnel.
