Programme information

We are delighted to introduce this online training that builds on SSAT’s Introduction to Coaching programme and on the coaching skills participants will have acquired through initial coaching training and other roles.

Delivered over two 2.5hr workshops, this programme is ideal for teachers, leaders and other staff seeking to strengthen their coaching skill set and deepen their understanding of effective coaching practices.

Who is this for?

Participants will include those intending to more regularly use coaching conversations to develop and support individuals and teams and those taking on responsibility for an aspect of their school’s coaching strategy.

The training is relevant to teachers, leaders, non-teaching, and other staff in all phases and at all levels.


Workshops and intersessional activities will enable participants to:

  • Focus on coaching techniques relevant to specific issues that often arise in coaching conversations.
  • Familiarise themselves with one or more new models of coaching.
  • Access tools and resources that they can draw on when coaching.
  • Consider how to create a solution-focused culture of coaching in their school/organisation.
  • Observe, review and give feedback on coaching.
  • Practice coaching.
  • Reflect on and critique how they are applying learning from coaching training and practice.
