Building Safe and Positive Learning Environments with Timian Learning and Development

Schools are hubs of learning and development, where students and teachers spend a significant portion of their day. While not inherently high-risk environments, addressing potential conflicts and trauma is crucial.

Our trauma-informed training equips staff with de-escalation techniques and positive behaviour support strategies, fostering a culture of respect and dignity within the classroom. This approach benefits schools across all levels – primary, secondary, and special educational needs.
