Who is this course for?

Challenging behaviour used to be called ‘problem behaviour’ but it is important to realise that an individual who displays challenging behaviour is not a ‘problem to be fixed’.  Challenging behaviour is a sign that something isn’t working for the individual and this may be a need that is not being met or an inability to communicate their feelings.  This course would be relevant to parents, carers and professionals working in various sectors, including education, health and social care and public services.

What can I do after this course?

By undertaking this course, you will gain formal recognition by obtaining a nationally recognised qualification.  This will enable you to further your own continuous professional development, which could support you in improving your career prospects.  You can also progress onto further qualifications.

Why choose this course?

Behaviour can be described as challenging if it causes harm to the individual or others, or prevents the individual from fulfilling some aspect of their life, such as education, work or relationships.


This course explains what is meant by challenging behaviour and the different types of behaviour that may be seen.  Learners will consider how communication can impact on an individual’s behaviour, explore what support services are available, and how reflection on incidents can help in managing behaviour.
