Coaching for Teachers
Coaching for Teachers
Support with expanding your skills and achieving your career goals
You’re in a profession that is constantly in the spotlight, and one that impacts on so many young lives. There are lots of pressures to contend with on a daily basis, and it can sometimes be difficult to find the right balance between your work load and your home life, let alone your own personal development. I’m sure you have days when you can’t decide what to have for dinner, never mind what your next step on the career ladder should be!
Yet as someone who is responsible for the learning of others, it seems only right that you should also take time to update your own skills and knowledge. No matter how experienced you are, or whether you teach in a primary school or are a lecturer at a university, CPD (Continuing Professional Development) is vital for reaching your full potential as a teacher.
As you know you are required to complete at least 30 hours of professional development every year. Yet it can be hard to find the motivation, let alone the time. And with a full-on timetable and extra-curricular activities to manage too, you can be forgiven for putting CPD on the back burner.
The trouble is, sometimes it never makes it to the front of the queue when it comes to priorities.

Coaching is the key to progressing as an effective teacher, no matter what your ambitions are or where you see yourself in the future. I will work with you side-by-side to ensure that you not only complete your CPD hours, but that you get the most out of every single minute. We will set realistic goals that match your aspirations and keep you accountable for your progress every step of the way. I will show you the most up to date techniques and strategies being taught to newly qualified teachers, so you need never feel left behind.
My coaching skills will help you become more aware of your own self-development and personal learning. We will identify any performance issues and any challenges that you need to overcome and work closely together to find the solutions and your own way forward.
I will help you take greater ownership and responsibility for the actions you need to take to improve as a teacher. You will see quick, positive results and will return to the classroom better motivated, more confident and committed to getting the best out of your students.
Coaching periods can be for any duration from an hour a week to day-long sessions.
