Hi-Impact Coaching for teachers and school leaders

This highly interactive training day is aimed at teachers and school leaders who are either new to coaching or who have some experience. The day focuses on the critical skills of highly effective coaches and how you can apply these in a range of contexts such as leadership, management, teaching and one-to-one support and mentoring of children and colleagues.  Nick Austin and Richard Churches use a unique training approach in which they also ensure that participants leave with an awareness of how to train and cascade the skills themselves.
