Coaching Training for ECT Mentors – Digital Download


Coaching skills for the ECT mentor will support high quality outcomes and build resilience and powerful pedagogy

Going Beyond Mentoring the Early Career Teacher


How will this course benefit you?

Coaching for ECT mentors looks at how coaching, in particular Instructional Coaching can have a transformational effect on performance for the aspiring, early career or recently qualified teacher.

We look in detail at the Early Career Teachers’ Framework and how this in synergy with the Teachers’ Standards provides a foundation for high quality teacher development in the early stages of their career.

We show how developing coaching skills for the ECT mentor provides a superb framework to slowly develop in their mentees self-confidence, resilience and reflection that leads to excellence in pedagogy and learning.

This course Coaching Skills for the ECT mentor uses the Early Career Teachers’ Framework to delve into how best to create the right feedback approaches to ensuring ECTs are able to develop a range of pedagogical skills that will ensure that over two years they become exceptional teachers with a promising teaching career ahead of them

What will be covered in the course?

  • Provide those who mentor with the coaching skills to support their ECTs towards self-improvement and guide them towards setting their own learning goals and targets
