Designed to maximise the effectiveness of professional development conversations, this course is for any member of a school team that is a line manager, or for any member of staff who ever has to feed back to a colleague after a lesson observation.

Who should attend?

Proprietors, Headteachers, Senior Leaders, Heads of Department, Heads of Year/ Key Stage, and any colleague who regularly observes other teachers’ lessons and wants to provide feedback that can be heard, not felt.

Aims of the course: 

  • Develop the understanding of how coaching works as a communication and development framework
  • Practise and improve coaching techniques through interactive training
  • Enable staff with a clear, effective model for coaching that can be used for most coaching conversations
  • Enhance the skills of staff who are line managers in order to maximise the effectiveness of feedback

Course takeaways: 

  • Participants will leave with an understanding of key coaching models, and strategies, that will enable them to feel more prepared when approaching a coaching conversation with colleagues
  • Everyone taking part will also gain a useful insight into how the anatomy of a coaching conversation develops in the moment, and how to successfully adapt to changing
  • Opportunities to observe and/or practise having coaching conversations in a safe and supportive space will develop colleagues’ practice when faced with future coaching conversations
