Outstanding Coaching in Schools: The Fundamentals of Coaching

Details

In his coaching manual, Coaching for Change, Tony Swainston says: “Coaching has been the catalyst that has enabled many people I have worked with to reach their goals. It helps people to gain clarity, provides challenge, and broadens their thinking, no matter what their age or position in the school. Coaching embraces the truth that we all work better, more efficiently, and more effectively, when we believe that we are understood and our personal needs are being considered.” 

Tony has coached, and trained people to be coaches, in both business and education, in over 20 countries around the world. Many of Tony’s clients include people who wish to become professional coaches and therefore opt to take the ILM level V (at degree level) or ILM level VII (at Masters level) qualifications in coaching and mentoring through Tony’s company, Tony Swainston Ltd. Many of these include head teachers. 

“The key goal of the coach is to get others to perform at their highest level. It never involves the transmitting of knowledge, wisdom, or advice, but rather draws out the immense abilities that at times lie dormant inside another individual.” 

This one-day institute will provide you with the opportunity to find out about what coaching in schools is, why it is important for both adults and students, and how you can begin to use coaching to support the work that you do in your school, whether as a teacher or a head teacher.
