Author Andy Vass’s definition of coaching emphasises the process of learning. It’s about helping people to uncover their own solutions rather than giving them advice, telling them what to do or solving problems for them. Whether you’re coaching or being coached, the Coaching in Schools Pocketbook can help you to become ‘even better’ in your role.
Find out how solution-focused tools like ‘exceptions’ and ‘scaling’ enable high quality, thoughtful dialogues and how becoming skilful at asking questions, listening and providing feedback can develop both coach and coachee. Andy’s RIGAAR model for framing a coaching conversation shows, step by step, how to establish and achieve goals that lead to exciting and positive change. Whether you’re an NQT, a Headteacher, or Middle Leader, you’ll be inspired by examples from teachers and students describing, in their own words, how coaching has worked for them and for their schools, improving performance and raising attainment at every level.
Coaching in Schools updates and replaces the Coaching & Reflecting Pocketbook.
