SSAT Coaching – training

We can help you embed a culture of coaching in your school, MAT or local authority by providing SSAT Coaching training for senior and/or middle leaders in your school. Our high-quality training is suitable for individuals with some or no experience of coaching at all.

Choose from full or half day sessions or training over a series of twilights. All our sessions are designed to give participants the opportunity to explore the benefits of coaching and acquire the skills, knowledge and understanding to confidently carry out their roles while developing others, leading change and sustaining improvements.

SSAT Coaching training will help you:

  • understand what coaching is and is not
  • introduce a coaching model to use across your school
  • develop coaching skills
  • practice coaching
  • reflect on the next steps for coaching in your role and your school.

In an organisation with a coaching culture you would see:

  • leaders and managers developing other leaders and managers
  • open, honest and supportive conversations at all levels
  • coaching for development, not to manage poor performance
  • the routine giving of constructive feedback
  • a clear vision for coaching in the organisation.
