Level 3 'Implement Positive Behaviour Support'

The aim of this course is to develop employees who support individuals who have complex needs and can display behaviour of concern. 

This course is particularly useful for those employees required to provide evidence of professional competence. For example, as required by Approved Trainers under the Restraint Reduction Network Training Standards (2019):

“A qualification or training that indicates professional competence and understanding of the sector in which they are delivering training.”

It provides the learner with the knowledge, understanding and skills, required to implement a Positive Behavioural Support (PBS) Model for individuals who frequently display behaviour of concern. PBS is an evidenced-based approach with a primary goal of increasing an individual’s quality of life, with a secondary goal of decreasing the frequency and severity of their behaviour of concern.

This course covers the following:

  • Active Support
  • Challenging assumptions
  • Daily Planning
  • Environmental risk factors
  • Positive Behaviour Support Plans
  • Primary strategies (Green Behaviour Scale)
  • Role of Structure
  • Secondary and tertiary prevention (Red Behaviour Scale)
  • Trauma
  • Triggers (fast and slow)

Course Purpose

The course develops the knowledge, skills and competence of learners working in a wide range of roles in a health and social care setting. Learners must be in paid or voluntary work to enable assessment to take place. The purpose of the course is to support a role in the workplace and to enable learners to progress to a higher-level course in the same subject area.
