Some People Want to Excel At COACHING And Some Don't
- Which One Are You?

Get expert hand-holding and support to avoid the common mistakes and fast-track your success.

As a VIP, you’ll be working at the Elite Level (one-to-one) with a world-class Coaching in Schools expert who will help you to optimise your skills and set up a powerful programme to drive your school’s improvement.

This 7-Step programme is for you if you want to become the best coach you can possibly be and maximise your impact. You’ll get 1:1 hand-holding, unlimited advice and regular support/accountability calls from an expert as you learn, meaning you can take your coaching to the highest level, so you’re 100% guaranteed to get the BEST POSSIBLE RESULTS.

If you’re a Headteacher or Senior Leader, this certification will help you to accomplish your school development plan targets so you’ll achieve your vision and get the best possible outcomes.

What’s more, when you’ve mastered and refined your coaching skills at the highest level, you’ll be even more effective and successful in your role.

Not only will you gain more time to work on the important strategic stuff (and relax with your family)…

…You’ll also be able to help others achieve seemingly ‘insurmountable’ goals quickly and easily – and feel less stressed!

Plus you’ll be able to provide better school-to-school support if you’re a NLE, LLE or SLE.

If you’re in charge of leading coaching in your school, as an Accredited Advanced Education Coach you’ll be set apart from others in similar roles. Rather than wasting 18 years of your time making mistakes or trying to develop a model which is as powerful as this one, you’ll get to leverage the vast knowledge and skills of experts, so you’ll avoid the pitfalls and dramatically shortcut your success.

Whatever your role, if you want to build a coaching culture in your school and drive school improvement the right way, you must know EXACTLY how to do it. And this training (i.e. learning to coach and create a high impact coaching programme) is how you do just that. It will also ensure your school is able to meet the requirements of the Coaching Quality Mark. As you probably already know, this prestigious award is universally acknowledged as the pinnacle of achievement in the Education Coaching industry and is a highly sought-after and high-value kite-mark of excellence.
