What makes the difference between teaching that works and teaching that fails? The factor that contributes the most is the quality of the teacher-student relationship. It’s more important than what the teacher is teaching or who the teacher is trying to teach.
Teacher Effectiveness Training (T.E.T.) offers teachers the essential communication and conflict resolution skills they need to have high quality relationships with their students so there will be less conflict and more teaching-learning time. This model has worked for hundreds of thousands of teachers around the world.

How the Program Works
T.E.T. is a 30-hour program designed to involve participants very actively in their own learning. We use the following four-step instructional process in each session:
- Structure: Instructor presentations, in-class reading, audio-visual aids.
- Involvement: Role-plays, workbook exercises, one-on-one skill practice.
- Process: Group discussions, one-on-one sharing and reflection to explore new learnings and insights.
- Application: Individual and group activities to consolidate learning and make specific action plans. Involves workbook and text reading and out-of-class skill practice assignments.
