Continuing professional development events are useful ways of introducing teachers, tutors and trainers to new ideas. However change in the classroom rarely happens without follow-up coaching on an ongoing basis.
Coaching sessions provide a forum in which teachers, tutors and trainers can:
- seek feedback on their practice
- discuss changes they might make
- explore how to use and adapt resources.
Use the video extract of coaching to help you to think about your own coaching relationship and how it could be even more effective. Your regional subject lead can provide further information about how to engage with the programme. Their contact details can be found on www.subjectlearningcoach.net/contact/.
