Coaching Towards Outstanding Teaching
Coaching can help to embed a culture of excellence and improvement across a whole organisation. Coaches can have a significant impact on influencing transformational change as part of planned continuing professional development focus or where policy changes require organisational and curriculum reform. Coaching has a significant impact on creating a whole school consistent ethos where all staff share what works well, continuously learn through reflection and are motivated to try out new approaches and ideas in the classroom.
The new OFSTED handbook for August 2016 states as one of the grade descriptors for the effectiveness of leadership and management,
"Leaders and governors use incisive performance management that leads to professional development that encourages, challenges and supports teachers' improvement".
"Staff reflect on and debate the way they teach. They feel deeply involved in their own professional development. Leaders have created a climate in which teachers are motivated and trusted to take risks and innovate in ways that are right for their pupils"
This event provides those who attend with an opportunity to learn and practice the skills and attributes needed to become a coach including influencing, questioning and active listening skills. We give delegates time to reflect on how to use coaching to support individual teachers to reflect on their practice, deepen their understanding of outstanding pedagogy and focus on and look closely at how coaching can be implemented as part of a quest to remain or become an outstanding school. We have revised the content to include a focus on how deep and rich questioning in the classroom is an integral part of the focus on formative assessment which is a very important aspect of the current advice on how to assess without levels.
The day will include:-
Who should do this training?
Managers with responsibility for supporting the staff development of experienced and newly qualified staff and those with responsibility for performance management that reflect the new policy changes. Aspiring managers, outstanding and good teachers and those professionals who want to learn coaching techniques to support the development of their teams.
The Coaching team
We have a team of highly qualified coaches with a background in education. Coaching is integral to how we plan and prepare for delivery of all our events. We work closely together to refine the programmes we deliver and constantly update them to reflect changes to the curriculum, assessment and the demands of the inspectorate. We believe that those who attend our training should have a good understanding of how the learning will be used back in school and what the individual is aiming to achieve in ensuring they are able to share and cascade to others and measure the impact on whole school, team or individual performance. You can find out more about the team by going to the about us page on our website.
