The Teacher Classroom Management Programme
The Teacher Classroom Management (TCM) training programme comprises 6 full-day workshops running at 3-4 week intervals during the school year. The programme is focused on strengthening teacher classroom management strategies, promoting children’s pro-social behaviour, and reducing classroom aggression and non-cooperation with peers and teachers. The programme can be useful for teachers, teacher aides, psychologists, school counsellors, and any school personnel working with young children. It is particularly suitable for early primary years (JI-2/3 class).
The Mentoring for Achievement Programme
MAP mentors are trained in two stages and finish the process as accredited MAP mentors.
School personnel and School Completion Programme staff can train as MAP mentors. The programme does not train volunteer mentors. MAP Mentor Training Stage 1 involves 2 full days training which introduces and gives trainees an opportunity to practice the specific skills required for MAP mentoring. This enables newly trained mentors to start mentoring with a clear sense of how to conduct MAP mentoring. MAP Mentor Training Stage 2 involves ongoing training which is conducted over the phone from the mentor’s own location over the duration of the 1st 2-year round of the programme. This process develops the mentoring skills in the practical context of the weekly mentoring and ensures MAP mentors become skilled and competent MAP mentors during their 1st round of the programme.
Once MAP mentors have completed Training Stages 1 & 2 and the accreditation process they are free to operate as MAP mentors independent of Archways.
