Interview question and my answer...!

Discussion in 'Teaching assistants' started by sillyme85, Jun 29, 2015.

  1. In my interviews..there is a question (everytime ...without fail) about behaviour management.

    My answer is (always)....

    * Remind the child/children the rules * if in a group....praise the good behaviour * Give them timeout / explain the consequences * Take the issue to the CT and get advice

    and always I have given them many examples regarding behavioural issues I had experienced and what actions I had taken.

    Anything else to add ? Please advise.

    Many Thanks

    Not always about the 'big' behaviour issues. For example, during a carpet session you might need to discretely manage low-level behaviour issues so as not to disturb the teaching. A non-verbal clue for look or listen (Makaton/Makaton style) to the child may be enough to get them back on task.Maybe, moving to sit near a child if their behaviour warrants. Also, a thumbs up to a child who is showing good behaviour.

    Remember that the school has a behaviour policy, so you would be working with that in mind and would consult with your CT. With younger children, (my experience is mainly KS1) stickers as a reward can be popular! It is important that you work with your CT.
