Learning Cultures - Our Coaching Programmes for Schools and Colleges

Learning Cultures is one of the leading providers of coaching training for schools and colleges across the UK and internationally. We have developed a suite of training that will support transformational change to teaching and learning practice and create a learning platform that is built on the celebration and cascading of good practice and self-reflection.

Creating a coaching culture provides opportunities for all staff to contribute to meeting the vision for continuous improvement and ensures a positive framework exists to support leaders, managers, teachers and support staff share good and outstanding practice, create opportunities to foster powerful learning conversations and to want to continually grow and develop as professionals.
