Developing your coaching skills

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 3hr 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. 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.

I found the course extremely informative and pitched at exactly the level I needed – I had previously done some coaching training as part of other courses but nothing this in depth.


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

Additional delegates from the same organisation can be booked on at a discounted rate.

I found the course to be one of the best CPD I have ever done. Angelina and Sylvia were amazing and the care and support they gave along with the encouragement was fantastic. They boosted my confidence and gave me the best help and advice that I have ever been given.
