Teachers and Leaders from over 500 schools across Australia have completed the Berry Street Education Model training. Working with school leadership teams, we often hear these questions: “How do I best implement the Berry Street Education Model in my school?” “How do we extend and sustain the learning from our initial Berry Street Education Model course?” “How do I continue to support my staff to meet the complex needs of struggling students?” This course will have a focus on implementation, mentoring, and designing whole-school structures and processes which support the Berry Street Education Model strategies. New topics and research will be unpacked and participants will have opportunities to explore how the new learning can be applied to their own lives and to the lives of students. By incorporating leadership perspectives into this next step of learning, participants will explore ways to embed a whole-school approach into their school community. Participants will be asked to use a participatory action research model to reflect on the effectiveness of the approach in their school.The Berry Street Education Model provides schools with a whole-school approach to meet the developmental strengths and needs of students, teachers and school leaders. The Berry Street Education Model is based on classroom strategies informed by Berry Street's approaches to trauma-informed learning and the science of wellbeing. These student-centred strategies provide teachers, leaders, and allied education professionals with the knowledge of how to foster student willingness and capacity for school achievement. This model assists teachers to help all learners who present themselves in both mainstream and specialist classrooms.
Berry Street has a strong track record and a key role to play in assisting the development of services for vulnerable children and young people. Our education model informs the four campuses of the Berry Street School, and has contributed to significant academic growth in Victoria’s most vulnerable students, many of whom live in out-of-home care with histories of school refusal and disrupted education. Through the Berry Street Childhood Institute, we aim to share our knowledge on trauma-informed positive education. Our approach combines a top down and ground up strategy. We focus on developing the capability of current and future school leaders by providing guidance on practical implementation in mainstream and specialist schools. Additionally, we provide consultation to community service organisations involved in education engagement.
