Event Description:

 “Coaching - the most powerful tool for team empowerment.”   Learn the key skills of coaching that will help you to unlock your team’s potential and help them find their own solutions.

Coaching is one of the most powerful tools for unlocking natural abilities. This approach leads to greater independence and long-term resilience. Not only does it support performance, leadership and independent learning, but coaching also enhances teachers' performance in the classroom by providing tools and frameworks for self-reflection and feedback. Additionally, coaching as a communication tool fosters deep relationships between colleagues and staff, developing a supportive and collaborative culture. 

The Advanced Coaching course builds on the knowledge and experience of Foundational Coaching.  The Foundational skills are reaffirmed, improved and developed as participants also learn and practise new and transformative coaching tools and techniques to enhance their coaching.

Event Outcomes:

To provide participants with additional coaching techniques and tools.
