Programmes and training
We advocate the use of evidence-based approaches in all services and are establishing what is required to support staff to get good outcomes. We mainly deliver training to professionals who work with parents, teachers and/or children.
The Incredible Years® series of programmes are a suite of programmes for parents, teachers and children created by Carolyn Webster-Stratton in the USA. The centre delivers group leader training along with supervision and mentoring for group leaders and teachers delivering the programmes. The Incredible Years® series has a strong evidence base demonstrating its effectiveness in delivering effective and sustained change in parent, teacher and child behaviour.
The KiVa school based Anti-bullying programme for schools, delivered by teachers both prevents bullying and tackles bullying incidents effectively. The programme has been developed by the University of Turku, Finland and is used in 90% of comprehensive schools in Finland. There is growing evidence of its effectiveness both in the UK and Finland. The programme is currently available for Key Stage 2 pupils and covers approximately 50% of the English and Welsh PSE curricula. CEIT is the only licenced training organisation for the KiVa programme in the UK.
In addition CEBEI also produces its own programmes based on research by Prof Hutchings spanning over 25 years that are currently being evaluated.
Training in evidence-based programmes for primary schools to promote children’s engagement.
Over the last 15 years our Centre has been researching and training people in a range of evidence-based programmes for schools that contribute to children’s wellbeing and personal social development. The Centre evaluates programmes and then works with our linked charity the Children’s Early Intervention Trust to make training and resources in effective programmes available to schools.
