ILM coaching and mentoring training for teachers and headteachers
We specialise in coaching in education in many ways, mainly by providing coach training for teachers, headteachers, advisers and managers. We find that teachers and educationalists naturally possess very highly developed and innate communication skills. In our experience, anyone involved in teaching discovers an easy natural affinity with our coaching methodology and its applications with their students, colleagues and parents. Our ILM coaching and mentoring training for teachers and headteachers provides a sound qualification and essential practical leadership skills. Coaching in education training not only enhances teaching skills but brings about an improvement in all communication skills, faculty teamwork and leadership.
- Specifically designed for head teachers, teachers, and educational leaders
- Structured to be practical and to embed the skills for the long term
- Uses best practices, proven methods and novel learning techniques that are refined and shaped by feedback from hundreds of attendees from schools and educational institutions all over the world
Coach Training for Teachers
The style of our coach training is ‘learning by doing’. It is a very practical approach in which participants have the opportunity to observe and practise live coaching sessions about issues arising in their workplaces and to receive constructive and personalised feedback from our trainers and from one another.
Our courses are purposely divided into two or more modules over a period of weeks or months. Between the modules, participants are paired up and given structured assignments in order to practise their skills in a supportive learning environment.. This builds confidence and fluency, enabling participants to embed the new skills and use them naturally in the workplace once they have completed their accreditation
We are committed to ensuring that the impact of our interventions with your school or organisation is captured in a way that is meaningful to you. We work with participants to develop methods that meet their specific requirements and give them the information that they need throughout the programme.
All modules will be specially tailored with examples relevant to your school or organisation. Participants will observe live demonstrations and coach each other practically on real issues currently occurring in their workplace. We are skilled at integrating our programmes into your existing teaching and leadership models so that your investment in any prior learning and training is retained.
