Pedagogical Coaching Training

A powerful way to improve teaching and learning across a school or trust. We work with you to develop an internal team of pedagogical coaches who are welcomed into classrooms to help colleagues review and improve practice. 


“I noticed improvement in communication with colleagues in my department after just the first session, I would definitely recommend this training.


Otherwise known as Instructional Coaching, the TDT approach balances the need for rigour with the need to build confidence and ownership of learning.
