Professional Development for Schools

Our Reframing Learning and Teaching Environments (ReLATE) model supports schools or systems to create the preconditions for improved teaching, learning and wellbeing.

In addition to the ReLATE implementation and training options provided by The MacKillop Institute, leaders and trauma-informed educators that work at our schools also provide targeted training and professional learning for schools and systems in their region. These sessions draw on contemporary theory and research to provide practical skills and tools that can be used by leaders, staff and teachers in classrooms.

Topics include:

  • Trauma-informed education & psycho-education
  • Trauma-informed leadership
  • Behaviour management & student safety
  • Social and emotional learning
  • Inclusive school and classroom practices
  • Individual education plans & safety plans
  • Staff safety and self-care
  • Engaging disengaged guardians
  • Recovery from loss
  • Trauma-informed leadership

If you would like to know more about how ReLATE is implemented at MacKillop Education, you can contact the MacKillop Education campus in your region. If you would like to know more about becoming a ReLATE school, please contact The MacKillop Institute.
