Coaching Towards Outstanding Teaching and Learning - When teachers develop the skills of a coach they use the most powerful and motivating pedagogy as part of leading learning in the classroom

NQT teachingCoaching is all about motivational dialogue where professional conversations allow individuals to work together to share their practice, focus on evidence-based solutions and develop high quality outcomes for pupils. This coaching course gives teachers the opportunity to learn how to coach and have the skills to empower reflection, foster resilience and encourage innovation.

The OFSTED Inspection Handbook focuses on the curriculum and how it is delivered by teachers to create seamless learning.  The need for teachers to work collaboratively with their colleagues is woven through the document. Learning how to coach and creating opportunities for teachers to share and cascade their practice and their successes will have a profound impact on the evidence that there is a focus on subject and cross-curricular learning.

  • "Teachers have expert knowledge of the subjects they teach."
  • Teachers enable pupils to understand key concepts, presenting information clearly and encourage appropriate discussions".
  • "Leaders create coherence and consistency across the school so that pupils benefit from effective teaching and consistent expectations, wherever they are in the school."
  • "Continuing professional development is aligned with the curriculum and the extent to which this develops teachers' content knowledge and teaching content knowledge over time, so that they are able to deliver better teaching for pupils."

The Learning Cultures' coaching team

We have a team of highly qualified coaches with a background in education. Coaching is integral to how we plan and prepare for delivery of all our events. We work closely together to refine the programmes we deliver and constantly update them to reflect changes to the curriculum, assessment and the demands of the inspectorate. We believe that those who attend our training should have a good understanding of how the learning will be used back in school and what the individual is aiming to achieve in ensuring they are able to share and cascade to others and measure the impact on whole school, team or individual performance. You can find out more about the team by going to the about us page on our website.
