Educational coaching can be extremely beneficial in a school or college environment for students and teachers alike. Facilitating powerful change in the classroom for both teachers and students can be a key focus for some educational centres that wish to revitalise their teaching style or the attitude of the student body.
Teachers already facilitate their own development through Continuous Professional Development programs and teacher training, however, many teachers find that they benefit greatly from an educational coaching course as it allows them to focus solely on their own goals and what they need to do to improve. The confidence, self- belief and attitude of a teacher can be positively changed by the experience of professional educational coaching. Similarly, students can benefit extremely from this kind of interaction as it provides a new way of focusing on their personal targets while acting as an inspirational tool for overcoming personal challenges.
As experienced practitioners in a range of contexts, we are acutely aware of how lonely the role of a SENCO can be. So we wanted to create a cost-effective bespoke service for SENCOs and SEND Leaders to access, as and when they need it. For some settings that might be a one-off to discuss a specific issue, for others it may be mean an hour every half term. Each setting and leader is unique.
Our process: we have invested time into thinking how best to offer a tailored and personalised service.
Here is a selection of programmes currently available although bespoke support for Leadership teams, governors or full staff is also available.
