I offer training & consulting for schools to develop a coaching culture.
BEGIN WITHIN - THE FOUNDATIONAL COACHING COURSE
A two day coaching course combining essential elements of coaching theory with coaching practice. Suitable for groups of 8-12, this coach training is the first step in helping teachers develop coaching skills for their teaching practice.
GROW FROM WITHIN - THE ADVANCED COACHING COURSE
A two day coaching course building on the foundational course. This course will help teachers & school leaders support students and colleagues in bringing long term goals to fruition, whilst growing mastery of the skills learned on the foundational course.
The foundational coaching course was invaluable to my work as a teacher. The two training days were packed with knowledge and opportunities to practise. I am reminded of the deep need, in all of us, to be listened to and feel equipped with some solid skills to help me connect better with my students and in my personal life. James and Ian were brilliant. They were utterly professional and skilfully guided us through the process. At the same time, they were totally authentic and engaged. We were doing it together - and their good humour, honesty and willingness to share their own selves made it a great space for our group to do the same. This is definitely something that would support anyone who regularly works with people, whether it's as a teacher or senior leader and, of course, in family life. Thanks so much, James and Ian. I hope we can work together again!
