Target group All leaders in ECE, Primary and Secondary schools who wish to develop their ability to coach others.

“Coaching is seen as a significant, if not the most significant skillset for leaders, when focused on growing professional practice with others.” (Whitmore, 2010)

Leaders focus, at times, on conversations that ‘confront’practice. This is not coaching. Coaching conversations focus on ‘learner agency and learner responsibility taking’ in an air of partnership.

These learning sessions focus on:

  • Building personal capabilities in facilitative listening and asking powerful questions
  • Understanding and applying coaching frameworks as focused strategies
  • Understanding and applying personalised approaches that focus on the ‘self’ and the ‘other’
  • Applying coaching ‘habits’ in the context of ‘everyday’
  • Exploring and applying coaching within the context of ‘appraisal’ and ‘professional practice growth’
  • Co- coaching in teams
  • Growing personal coaching dispositions

This learning series is useful for both individuals who wish to grow their practice, and teams within schools that are intent on growing a culture of coaching.

One session will take place in each of term one and four and two sessions will be in term two. Participants will be asked to focus on ‘coaching practice’ within the context of their role and with an ‘inquiry in to practice’ approach, during term three.
