1-2-3 Magic & Emotion Coaching
Teacher Professional Development

Primary Schools ~ K-6

We specialise in providing a flexible and consistent approach to effectively manage difficult and disruptive behaviour, that also improves self-regulation and emotional well-being in students.

We facilitate professional development for teachers, teacher assistants, & primary schools in WA and NT.

We will equip one or all of your teachers with the necessary practical skills and a set of responses to help children improve self-control, so they can learn to respond more flexibly and calmly in the educational setting. We also place high importance on staff well-being.

Primary Schools:

If your school is looking for a consistent whole school approach, then our teacher professional learning starts with the content delivery and can be supported via our guided practice model.

Here are a few of our training options:

Live Webinars and Online Learning

Like most, we have a preference to provide professional learning face-to-face.  However, if completing it online is beneficial or more convenient, we can provide a live webinar training package tailored to your needs.  This webinar package can also include follow-up onsite consultancy and coaching.

All webinars will be recorded and made available to registrants only. If you do not attend the live event then our LMS platform will track your viewing progress. Certificates will only be sent to those who have completed the course. Recordings will be paused at the end for confidentiality of Q&A time.
