Jim Roberson

Jim Roberson Jim has spent the last 10 years working with some of the most challenging young people in the UK, developing a unique classroom-based strategy he calls the 'Disciplined Approach'. Whether he's working with experienced classroom practitioners, struggling supply teachers, students themselves or even the police, Jim is able to share powerful, practical, common-sense strategies that bring out the best from some of the most demanding and hard-to-reach young people.

The Discipline Philosophy

Jim believes that school should be the place where you learn all you need to know to succeed in life, whatever form that success may take. Most importantly, in his view, you have to learn discipline. For Jim, behaviour is the B-word and he forbids mention of it. Discipline, on the other hand, is neatly described not as something others do to you to get you to behave, nor even as something you do to yourself, but rather as what you do for yourself. In this training Jim will share with you the key principles and strategies you should adopt to enable even the most challenging student in your school to 'do' discipline for themselves, and reap the priceless reward of success in education and life.

Who will benefit

This training is for anyone who wants to change the negative and disruptive attitudes of young people and instead help them develop a positive approach to learning and life.
