Coaching is the embodiment of what creates an outstanding school or college. Coaching delivers highly effective collaboration, where the sharing and cascading of good practice builds a powerful learning platform for leaders, managers, teachers and support staff.
Learning coaching skills provides teachers with the tools to help learners to find their own solutions to problems, take risks and feel comfortable with challenge and change.
The coaching philosophy focuses on trust and the absolute belief that individuals who are given time and the opportunity to find their own way forward will make positive change. This is so important in the context of education. It is paramount that we do believe that every individual both the adult and the pupil will learn and grow to become competent and confident in all that they attempt. We must create a culture of self-awareness and self-belief that will foster the right conditions for learning.
There is no better pedagogy than coaching and developing a coaching culture will model the characteristics of an outstanding school.
