Why does coaching work?
Teachers’ learning and development underpins school improvement and provides a vehicle for raising pupil achievement.
When teachers’ learning is based on their genuine assessment and understanding of pupils’ learning they can start to change their practice which can in turn result in real differences in outcomes.
Coaching, as a collaborative form of professional development, provides the ideal background to enhance teachers learning in schools.
It has to be seen as part of a strategic approach to CPD and not just an additional programme.
Coaching can have a transformational effect on performance and for the newly qualified teacher can have an impact on how well they develop during their crucial first year of teaching. Creating a culture where NQTs receive high quality non-judgemental feedback that is based on self - evaluation and the use of expert questioning techniques and listening skills has a proven impact on how well NQTs develop and grow in their role.
Similar techniques help all teachers in their quest for continuing professional improvement, building a firm foundation at the beginning of their career helps build a sustainable a powerful skills base that impacts on whole school excellence and improvement. Nurturing and developing teachers new to the profession will ensure that they feel a part of the school and will want to stay and develop their professional expertise as part of a long term strategy of sustainability.
This event can also be beneficial where schools want to support teachers returning from long term absence such as maternity leave and for those who are not in their first year of teaching but still require some support.
