What will you achieve by completing this this course?

This course has been developed as an introduction to the skills of coaching and it examines the principles of coaching and how using a coaching approach can have a dramatic effect on change and challenge for leaders, managers and teachers in education.  

We look at how coaching is transformational in building cultural change so that staff work more in synergy and collaboration and learners are more ready for challenge, risk taking and self-belief. Those who attend will have the opportunity to learn some coaching skills and some coaching models they can take back to use with their colleagues or their learners.

There has never been a better time to start your coaching journey. Coaching enhances well – being, it is highly motivating and creates a culture where all staff work together, share their best practice, build new strategies for change and challenge and are trusted be a part of the solution. An Introduction to Coaching is the perfect place to start.
