  • You want to help others become more confident, motivated and empowered
  • You want to stop 'spoon-feeding' the people you work with (whether it's colleagues or pupils)
  • You ever feel drained, overwhelmed or under pressure

Want a guaranteed way to feel less under pressure and get faster improvement?

Discover the system CEOs and Headteachers have used to make dramatic improvements in as little as 15 minutes – And how you can do the same.

At the very core of all successful schools is the hunger to continuously improve and get the best possible outcomes for the children.

When you’re responsible for developing others this relentless drive for improvement can bring major problems with it – especially when you’re faced with hefty budget cuts, heavy workloads and the immense pressure to get good results.

Smart Headteachers know that, when executed properly, there’s no faster, easier or more cost-effective way to improve performance than high quality coaching.

If you’re here, you already know it’s an essential aspect of any sustainable school improvement strategy, but unlike other coaching systems, this coaching system is 100% relevant to schools AND built on evidence-based impact so it can:

* Become the highest ‘return on investment’ strategy in any school…

* Be applied to ALL aspects of school improvement for years to come

* Work so quickly that you can literally coach and see improvement within 15 minutes (or even less!)

In other words, coaching has an enormous positive impact on leadership, teaching and learning and stress levels, and it can do all this in just 15 minutes. So that’s why schools need coaches.

There’s just one problem: Most so-called “coaches” don’t know what they’re doing or are using old, ineffective models which are well past their sell-by date!


…When you’re a Certified Education Coach, you’ll be uniquely qualified to boost the confidence, resilience, mental health and wellbeing of staff and pupils – and improve their productivity and performance.

More specifically, this 4-Step course will show you the latest best practice so you can shortcut your success, work less hard and make more impact!

If you’re a leader, manager or mentor, this certification is a great way to master and hone your coaching skills. It’s also an effective way to accelerate their progress of people you line-manage and ensure that they’re consistently working as well as possible.

If you’re a teacher or member of support staff this certification is a tangible way to show that you are a Certified Education Coach, which leads to better teaching and learning, which could help you attract promotion opportunities.

If you’re a trainee or apprentice, this certificate can set you apart from other employees who merely have a teaching degree or PGCE, but not the specialised skills that schools today are desperately seeking.

Whatever your role, this certificate can make you far more valuable to your school, and stop you feeling so under pressure, emotionally drained and exhausted!
