Teach a nightmare class...
Or defiant kids who keep 'losing it'?

Do you feel like...

  • You spend your days dealing with extreme student behaviour... instead of actually teaching?
  • Nothing seems to work? Being positive, following the behaviour policy... even shouting?
  • Your confidence has been knocked... and now you dread teaching 'that class'?

And the worst thing?

You feel stuck. Out of ideas. It's like being a student teacher all over again.

It's sucking the joy out of your job... and your life.

This isn't how you imagined your teaching career.

Before you know it...

You feel like the problem kids are 'winning'...

...at the expense of pupils who really want to learn

You feel like your mental health is under attack...

...because of the relentless stress, pushing you towards breaking point

You feel exhausted when you get home...

...and when you should be enjoying time with your loved ones, you find yourself thinking about problems at work

Bad behaviour is starting to spread across the class...

...making every day an uphill battle

You may even have questioned whether teaching is for you.

I want you to read the next sentence carefully:

This situation is not your fault - and you're not on your own

Right now, tens of thousands of other teachers are in exactly the same position as you. But no one talks about it.

The truth is... some students are beyond 'general' classroom management techniques.

And most teacher training doesn't prepare you to work with pupils who have serious and complex behaviour needs.

That's unfair... and you're not to blame.

So many teachers try to fix this situation by:

1. Googling for strategies:
This won't work, because articles on the web simply don't go into enough depth. Or they give you lots of theory - and then don't explain what to actually say or do in the classroom

2. Sticking with the same approach, but trying 'really hard' at at:
Let's be honest: if those general classroom strategies were going to work, they'd have worked first time. At this point, you need something stronger.

3. Asking a colleague for advice:
Unfortunately, unless your colleague's a behaviour specialist, they probably don't have the specific expertise to help you.

These approaches all fail for the same reason.

You don't get specialised advice from a behaviour expert who's been there before. Who can tell you exactly how you fix the problem, step-by-step.

Here's the good news

That means - if you've completed your teacher training, and you can already stand in front of a classroom and speak to a group of students, you already have all the qualities you need.

You just need to know which strategies and teaching approaches to use (and which to avoid).

And what's the fastest way of getting that knowledge?

Answer: Practical advice from experts who've helped hundreds of teachers, just like you, resolve behaviour problems successfully. Experts who've spent years teaching kids with significant behaviour needs.

Get unstuck by leapfrogging their experience!

It's time to get your classroom back.

Imagine... it's just 3 weeks later


  • Classroom behaviour is no longer a big problem and your focus is back on teaching - instead of fighting endless fires
  • You feel more confident managing challenging behaviour, because you're using targeted strategies that have been proven in 100s of other classrooms
  • You've created a more purposeful work environment for your class - so now they're more settled and making academic progress
  • Teaching feels easier, lighter, enjoyable again. It's like taking a breath of fresh air.


  • Because you know why the strategies work, you're able to adapt them whenever you need to (so you can react to behaviour quickly and flexibly - without feeling stressed)
  • The pressure has gone - you feel more relaxed and in control
  • Other teachers want to know the 'secret' of how you brought your difficult class round

How good would that feel?

Let's turn that image into reality...
