Phil Cairns

Phil has an extensive background in delivering training, with the last 5 years focused on SEMH children’s residential and specialist educational settings. Phil holds a L3 Certificate Education and Training, and more recently has been working towards his L5 Diploma in Education and Training.

Phil started working with children and young people in 2009. He most recently worked as a Lead Training Coordinator for a company providing clinically-informed children’s education and residential care. In this role, Phil delivered bespoke training to a wide range of professionals, with a focus on attachment and trauma, and positive behaviour support. Phil also delivered statutory safeguarding training, as well as First Aid.

Phil played a key role in the rollout of +ProActive Approaches training within his previous organisation, ensuring a smooth transition between behaviour support frameworks. He felt passionate about promoting a child centred approach, and encouraging a shift in culture towards empathetic and understanding staff teams. Phil was the lead in-house trainer, coordinating the efforts of 9 other in-house trainers to make the rollout a success.

Phil has assisted newly qualified in-house trainers whilst they transition across to +ProActive Approaches. Over the course of these rollouts, Phil spends his time not only teaching staff but also continuing to support the trainers with their confidence and progress. Phil works closely with the trainers to provide individualised feedback, support and plans for their development.

Phil is an enthusiastic, supportive and passionate trainer who is dedicated to changing staff perceptions. He nurtures enthusiasm and passion in carers and trainers alike to support the children and young people they work with on their road to recovery.
