Course summary

Summary

This year-long course will enable you to develop the attitudes and skills you need to become a highly effective professional coach/mentor within the education sector.

You will build a repertoire of powerful techniques - such as incisive questioning, active listening, goal setting and effective feedback - that will greatly enhance your practice. We will also guide you through some of the most insightful literature in the field and encourage you to critically engage with it. You will increase your own self-awareness using psychometric testing, journal writing and peer coaching.

Throughout this single module programme, you will develop your capabilities as a reflective writer and keep a journal in order to evaluate your own coaching and mentoring. The course is an opportunity to develop your leadership and management skills, either to support new teachers’ induction into the profession, or to help more established colleagues to realise their potential.

You will deepen your thinking about a specific aspect of coaching and/or mentoring and present your findings to fellow students in order to develop a supportive, professional community. You will also practise coaching and mentoring and demonstrate your competence by recording and critically reflecting on a coaching/mentoring session.

Career options

This is a CPD course for professionals currently working in education.

Students on the course will already be in employment. However, the course provides continuing professional development that will enable students to develop their personal and professional interests in coaching and mentoring, either as an end in itself, or to develop knowledge, skills and understanding as part of their developing ambitions in leadership and management.
