The Professional Development Needs of Staff in Wales on Behaviour Management and Attendance: Findings from the NBAR Report
Reid, Ken
Educational Studies, v37 n1 p15-30 Feb 2011
This paper presents the evidence collected for the National Behaviour and Attendance Review (NBAR) in Wales on the professional development needs of staff on behaviour management and school attendance. These data were collected in two stages between 2006 and 2008. At Stage 1, data were collected from four pre-selected professional focus groups who met throughout Wales to consider specific topics relating to the behaviour of children and young people in schools at the present time (n = 121). At Stage 2, relevant professional focus groups were established to specifically examine the themes of professional development and training in behaviour management and attendance in both North and South Wales (n = 62). This latter group activity built on the preliminary work of the NBAR review group's own sub-group on professional development and training. The paper considers the outcome of all these findings and their implications for future practice in Wales.
