What is Coaching?
Coaching is one of the most powerful tools for unlocking natural abilities. It offers tools and resources to increase pupils', colleagues' and parents' personal awareness, confidence, fulfilment and self-sufficiency. This approach leads to greater independence and long-term resilience. Not only does it support the performance, leadership and independent learning of pupils, coaching enhances teachers' performance in the classroom by providing tools and frameworks for self-reflection and feedback. Additionally, coaching as a communication tool develops stronger relationships between staff, developing a more supportive and collaborative culture

As a participant you will learn to use coaching as an empowering communication and development technique. This promotes self-awareness, personal responsibility and action in yourself, your colleagues, your students and others.

The course features hands-on training emphasising participation and practical experience. You will have had opportunities to coach, be coached and receive coaching feedback. By the end of the course, we hope you have gained an understanding of how to use basic professional coaching skills in a variety of contexts.
