Exceptional Behaviour Management

Pivotal Education is an education training consultancy founded in the UK and operating internationally with an office in Sydney. We are the leading specialists in behaviour and classroom management in the UK, providing cutting-edge training and support for teachers.

There are over 1000 schools and colleges using the Pivotal approach to behaviour management, a proven system that works in every classroom, with every adult and every learner.

The Five Pillars of Pivotal Practice underpin everything we do:

  1. Consistent, calm adult behaviour
  2. First attention for best conduct
  3. Relentless routines
  4. Scripting difficult interventions
  5. Restorative follow up

Training is available through instructor courses, online programmes, taster sessions and even the Pivotal Podcast and resource bank.

Train the Trainers Programme

Train your own in-house Instructor to sustain behaviour change


I'd recommend the Instructor training to all!

Jeremy Heath

Let us train one or more members of staff to be Licensed Pivotal Instructors. Your Licensed Instructor can deliver the Pivotal Curriculum for Behaviour to your colleagues. We train the instructor intensively and support them continually. We have a three year programme or a fast track programme – you can choose the option that fits best with your priorities and budget. The model is utterly flexible and sustainable. It allows you to develop a consistency of practice across the whole staff and to run training whenever you need it.

New staff can be trained exactly the same way that current staff have been. This blended approach combines training led by your in-house Instructor with self-paced online modules to allow you to create a flexible programme of CPD that works for your school or college.

Instructor Training is taking place in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney in September 2016.
