Pedagogical Coaching Programme

This training programme is designed to equip leading practitioners with coaching skills, tools and resources to support colleagues in setting goals to improve pupil outcomes, and provide non-judgemental and developmental feedback to help them achieve these.

Pedagogical Coaching is based on a partnership of equals where the goals are co-decided. It is dialogic, developmental and happens in an ongoing cyclical manner.
