    UNDERSTANDING AND SUPPORTING BEHAVIOUR MODULES       

    MODULE 2: POSITIVE CLASSROOM CULTURE – CHILDHOOD ADVERSITY

    (repeated 3 times in term 2)

    COURSE DESCRIPTION

    The neurology and psychology of behaviour and learning underpin the Understanding and Supporting Behaviour Modules.  Each module is a day of professional learning and can stand alone. However, they have been designed sequentially. The modules are aimed at early careers teachers but are not limited to them. The modules will be delivered sequentially across the 4 school terms. You are encouraged to attend all 4 modules.

    MODULE 2: POSITIVE CLASSROOM CULTURE – CHILDHOOD ADVERSITY (repeated 3 times in term 2)

    This module is grounded in an understanding of the neuroscience of childhood development and the neuroscience of childhood adversity.  The module will explore the typical brain development of early childhood, the different types of trauma and the physiological effects of childhood adversity.  With this foundation established, the module explores the behaviours that are consistent with childhood adversity.  It will provide a framework to understand what the behaviour is communicating and appropriate response strategies.

    Vocational Inspired Prophetic Early Career Teachers Program


    Date: 5pm Thursday 3 August - 3pm Friday 4 August

    Venue: The Monastery, 15 Cross Road, Urrbrae SA 5064

    Facilitators: Alison Gore and Jacinta Astachnowicz

    A Retreat experience providing faith formation for teachers early in their careers in Catholic Education. These Retreats meet the requirement of the Teacher Accreditation, Formation and professional Learning for Catholic Identity and Mission Policy (2022) that  ‘Early career teachers in diocesan schools are required to participate in the CEO’s staff spiritual and  religious  formation  program  for  early career teachers in  addition  to  school  based formation.’

    Through this residential program we aim to support and companion teachers early in their career in Catholic Education (less than 5 years in the sector) who are employed in a Catholic school in 2023 in their spiritual and religious formation.

    This Spiritual and Religious Formation will provide an opportunity to: 

    -Provide enhanced spiritual and religious formation as part of their induction into Catholic Education South Australia

    -Provide pastoral, spiritual and mentoring support for new teachers to the sector

    -Companion participants to support their ongoing formation

    -Inspire personal faith and prayer life of educators

    -Deepen teachers’ experience and understandings in order to support their key role as educators and witnesses within the Catholic school environment

    -Collect data to map longitudinal impact of formation programs on teacher satisfaction and commitment in supporting the mission and vision of their schools and Catholic Education South Australia

    -Develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of the vision and values of Catholic Education South Australia

    CESA will cover the costs including program materials, accommodation, catering and one days TRT.
