The Alice Smith School is the most established British international school in Malaysia, with over 70 years of rich educational heritage. There are two thriving and exciting campuses (primary and secondary) and a strong community of adults and children, all eager to learn and develop themselves. The Secondary Principal, Dr Sarah Howling, who was a key figure in developing coaching with us at her previous school (KGV – ESF, Hong Kong) had a vision of building a coaching culture and strengthening the community of learners at Alice Smith.
Working closely with Sarah, we created a coaching training course for teachers leading to
ILM certification. On joining KLASS, Sarah first had to complete her own train-the-coach-trainer qualification with us, and this was achieved through two courses delivered by us which Sarah attended first as an observer, and then as a co-trainer.
As soon as she qualified on our train-the-coach-trainer programme, Sarah arranged to license our coach training course and set about delivering courses at KLASS, and training up further trainers.
Sarah has since trained two more trainers, and between them they have delivered ten coaching courses between 2016 and 2020. We have also provided a supervision course by distance to the internal coaches there.
“A huge big thank you for 6 brilliant days of coaching training for our staff. Feedback has been 100% positive with comments such as ‘Transformational!’, ‘The best CPD I have ever had’, ‘The best training I’ve had in years’, ‘Simply life changing’. We are so excited about creating a coaching culture at Alice Smith and moving forward.” – Dr Sarah Howling, Secondary Principal, Alice Smith School Kuala Lumpur.
