The Place

Coaching has been seized upon as a very effective way of learning and developing and is widely used in sporting, business and personal development contexts. The aim of this workshop is to show you why and how you can incorporate some coaching methods into your classroom / school whilst maintaining your true voice.  If you have a leadership or teacher training role we will examine , how you can lead and  develop your teachers in your school.

This workshop examines the following questions:

·       How do I use a knowledge of coaching to improve my teaching/ effectiveness?

·       What skills do I need to start coaching?

·       How can I be authentic in my coaching approach?

·        How can a coaching approach improve my lesson or management observations and feedback?

As well as these discussions there will be activities to show you:

·       How to assess learning needs using coaching methods

·       Practicing and designing exercises with a more coaching content

·       A mini- coaching experience
