Coaching the NQT - Two live webinar sessions for those who mentor NQTs to learn how coaching and positive feedback techniques ensure successful outcomes for all

Coaching the NQT - Two live webinar sessions for those who mentor NQTs to learn how coaching and positive feedback techniques ensure successful outcomes for all

This event will run:- 

as morning sessions from 10.00 until 12.30 over two weeks

or as twilight sessions from 16.00 to 18.30 over two weeks

The intervening week can be used for reflection, collaboration and an opportunity to practice coaching skills with their mentees and think about how using coaching techniques can enhance feedback and positive outcomes to ensure that new teachers are successful in their journey towards pedagogical excellence.

This online event looks at how coaching can have a transformational effect on performance and for the aspiring, new or recently qualified teacher can have an impact on how they develop as independent and innovative teachers. This virtual training course looks at how to create a culture where mentors learn how to give non - judgemental feedback that is based on self - evaluation and the use of expert questioning techniques, influencing strategies and powerful active listening skills. The nature of this course over two weeks gives those who attend the opportunity to practice coaching and to reflect on how these new skills impact on their relationships with colleagues and their NQTs.

A new framework is being produced by OFSTED linked closely in style to the handbook for schools that came out in September 2019.  The Initial teacher Education inspection framework and will be in use from September 2020.

The spotlight is on how schools ensure their student teachers and NQTs have the right start and will develop into excellent and outstanding teachers who will want to stay within the profession. OFSTED and ESTYN in Wales are looking for evidence of high quality support, feedback and stretch and challenge. Coaching provides a superb framework for developing the mentoring skills of those who nurture NQTs and then turning them into coaching skills so that they develop as highly effective, independent and confident practitioners.

OFSTED say:-

"Inspectors will meet NQTs where possible and may wish to observe lessons given by NQTs. In doing so, inspectors should give consideration to the fact that NQTs have less experience than other teachers, but must assess the effectiveness of the support and professional development put in place for NQTs and other teachers who are in the early stages of their careers, particularly in dealing with pupil behaviour."

"This must include the quality of mentoring and what the school has done to support their development in areas for improvement identified by initial teacher training providers. Inspectors should discuss how NQTs are supported by the school in managing pupil behaviour."

The latest OFSTED Inspection Handbook 

This event will:-

  • Provide those who mentor with a range of coaching skills that will help them support their NQTs evaluate their own performance, build awareness of how they can improve and guide them towards setting their own learning goals and targets
  • Reflect on the differences between mentoring and coaching and focus on how moving from a mentoring role to a coaching role can have a significant impact on building confidence and managing change
  • Focus on the qualities of a successful teacher and the pedagogies they employ in the classroom and how mentors can influence and empower their mentees towards delivering consistent high quality lessons that deliver sequential and progressive learning opportunities through the use of highly effective pedagogy and assessment strategies
  • Examine the principles of learning in relation to the recent emphasis on the curriculum and how it is planned and delivered across all subjects and phases
  • Build in a review of how formative assessment can be aligned to coaching skills and support high levels of challenge for pupils from across the learning spectrum
  • Allow time for delegates to share their next steps and practise their coaching skills and techniques with others

Who should attend?

Managers with responsibility for teaching and learning and the mentoring of newly qualified teachers or those with only a few years experience. Aspiring managers and those professionals who want to learn coaching techniques to support the development of inexperienced, new or trainee teachers and those who are part of a drive to embed a coaching culture across the whole school.
