We optimise whole school performance by working with school leaders, leadership teams, staff, children and young people. By working with you to establish your clear outcome objectives, we are able to develop a programme to support your needs.

Our approach is unique in helping to develop practical and emotional skills by using the Chimp Model. Our mentors will show you how your mind works and teach effective mind management skills. Allowing staff to develop personal insight to help them be in the best place possible to support children in their care.

Some common areas we help in Education are:

  • Communication
  • Managing conflicts
  • Creating environments and cultures that enhance performance
  • Helping students get the best out of themselves
  • Managing the developing mind
  • Helping children and young adults manage their emotions and behaviours

Our mentoring team have experience working with students of primary and secondary school ages, as well as adults in higher education. We have written specific workshops and programmes to help develop positive habit formation from early years learning through to helping students to develop skills in resilience

For Teachers and Staff

Chimp Management Workshop Presentation

Our Skills for Life programme supports those in the education profession to explain and simplify the neuroscience of the mind, to help participants to manage thoughts, feelings and behaviours by offering practical guidance through the Chimp Model. The programme offers an in-depth understanding and practical application of the model to help participants perform at their best, in often very challenging situations

This highly engaging 8-week programme of 90 minute workshops helps individuals and teams to:
• Understand the neuroscience of the mind.
• Develop emotional insight and skills
• Manage their mind, emotions and behaviours to optimise performance and quality of life.
• Develop a positive and realistic approach to improve morale and build confidence and self-esteem
• Improve interaction, collaboration and communication with others
• Recognise, prevent, and manage stress to prevent burnout
• Develop skills to improve personal happiness, peace of mind, create a sense of purpose and belonging


The Silent Guides

This workshop is based on Professor Steve Peters’ best-selling book, The Silent Guides, developed to assist teachers and school staff in helping children form healthy and constructive habits and prevent unhealthy and destructive habits from developing. By simplifying neuroscience and applying the Chimp Model, the intervention helps manage behaviours and forms a foundation for building an environment for students to develop constructive habits and beliefs.

My Hidden Chimp

The My Hidden Chimp workshop is a perfect follow on from Silent Guides to help teachers and school staff help children to form constructive and positive behaviours. The session is based on simplifying the neuroscience of habit formation and focussing students on ten specific habits to work on through exercises and activities. Research has shown that this workshop can enhance interpersonal and relationship skills whilst also improving personal wellbeing in the classroom.

Teacher Workshops & Keynotes

Whilst every school is unique, many face similar challenges when creating the best possible learning platform. We have designed the following sessions to help your staff and students be in the best place possible, both personally and professionally. Our seven core areas can be delivered as a one-off session or as part of a combined programme to maximise wellbeing.

For Students

Our mentoring team have experience working with students of primary and high school ages, as well as adults in higher education.

What Teachers Say…

“Thanks for delivering a really interesting and stimulating day. The fact that we had to look at ourselves first before considering the implications of the chimp model for use with primary age children was just what we were looking for. Regular opportunities to reflect on different aspects of the model, tied in with Ben’s interesting and friendly way of presenting made it an enjoyable learning day.

The feedback has been really positive and enthusiastic from the delegates. Our next step for the schools is to plan the way ahead in implementing some of the ideas and strategies we learned yesterday for ourselves, other therefore in turn have a positive impact on our young learners.

I would fully recommend the day for educators, not only for the benefits of the children but also personal development and well being.”

Alan Jones
Headteacher, Ysgol Nefyn

“It was great to spend so much time over a period of 5 weeks discussing the model – the time between sessions allowing for reflection and some practical activities was also incredibly useful

I found the course incredibly interesting and beneficial on a personal and professional level and would recommend it highly to anyone interested in understanding more about the way they, their colleagues and others think and do!”.

Robin Bone, Headteacher

Eckington School

“Thank you for an informative, uplifting and fun presentation to our 2015 Summer School Leaders’ Conference. We already know from the very positive feedback that schools will act on the extensive ground covered in the time available and that quite a number of ‘chimps’ are going to feel very firmly managed! I feel sure individual or groups of schools will be in touch to take things further.”

Clive Webster, Chief Executive

Kent Catholic Schools Partnership

“The sessions have been packed with information and things to think about; the Chimp Management team are inspiring and challenging – but everything is rooted in real life, which makes it so powerful. After all, we are often dealing with difficult situations with children at school which are triggered by the realities of their daily lives. Thank you for the chance to take part personally, on behalf of our staff and our 420 lovely children!”

“Chimp Management worked with us to develop a programme of support, based on the Chimp Model.  They explained the model to the group of affected students, and helped them to understand why they felt the way they did, and why they were experiencing particular feelings, and the actions that could stem from these.  This doesn’t really do justice to Tim and his impact on the group; his interaction with the group was expert, his ability to engage, inspire and shift thought patterns is outstanding, and his character and warmth really facilitated the student’s ability to start to process the impact of what had happened.  He also worked with our staff to introduce the chimp model and how it could support their work in the classroom and beyond, and this has helped all of our teachers and support staff to better understand how young people think and behave, and what we can do to help them, and to help themselves.”
