The Teachers’ Coach

For Headteachers and School Leaders

As a school leader, you play a vital role within your school. You are responsible for the performance and development of not only the pupils, but also the staff you work with every day.

How would it be if you could find a way to create an environment where all staff and pupils feel valued, motivated and empowered to reach their full potential, allowing them to develop not only themselves but also their peers and colleagues around them?

As a leader, you are already aware of the possibilities of coaching as a professional and personal development tool; coaching will support individual members of staff, leadership teams and of course, your young people to grow personally, academically and professionally and they will achieve the best possible outcomes for themselves and for your school.
