I’m so pleased to share that we’ve just added a wonderful new partner to the CPI family. We’ve acquired Pivotal Education, an award-winning education consultancy and training company based in the United Kingdom.

As you may know, more than one million educators and other professionals around the world receive CPI training every year. That’s a wide reach, and we believe in reaching even wider (and higher!) every day. Because we’re committed to helping educators and students everywhere thrive, my colleagues and I are thrilled to deepen our reach by partnering with Pivotal Education.

Our new friends are equally excited. “CPI and Pivotal are a perfect match,” says Paul Dix, CEO at Pivotal. “Our values, expertise, and commitment to safer environments for young people are beautifully aligned. With CPI, we know that more teachers and students than ever will benefit from calm, focused classrooms that manage behavior brilliantly.”

Like CPI, Pivotal offers train-the-trainer courses and online programs, plus education via a podcast and blog. Also like CPI, Pivotal training is customizable, and whether it’s applied to teachers, support staff, administrators, or all staff, it provides a powerful catalyst for positive change. As partners, CPI and Pivotal will equip educators around the globe with unparalleled solutions for providing the best Care, Welfare, Safety, and SecuritySM for everyone.

In our UK office, Managing Director Martyn Dadds says, “Pivotal Education as part of our team will enable us to combine their expertise with our own extensive behavior management experience and provide even better and broader solutions for our customers.”

What does all this excitement mean for you? The high level of training, service, and support that you’re familiar with will remain unchanged, but our reach will continue to expand, particularly in Europe and Australia.

We look forward to continuing to help you build the calmest and safest schools and workplaces in the world.
