This course is aimed at coaches supporting our National College courses – NPQH, NPQSL and NPQML. The course provides an introduction to non-directive coaching using the GROW model (as used by the National College for School Leadership). Increasingly middle and senior leaders in school have an impossible workload and the need to grow and develop others within the organisation to build capacity is essential. Coaching is a key tool to create self-improving schools and is one of Goleman’s six leadership styles.
Course participants will be ready to coach others using the GROW model and will have some basic tools and a skill set to do so. They will be aware of how to use coaching to support a variety of contexts to drive school improvement and to grow capacity
within their own organisations.
“I found the whole experience of NPQH with QTL very positive and genuinely challenging - it has been hugely worthwhile for my development on many levels.”
“The biggest benefit of the course was the days in session. We discussed a wide variety of topics and had the opportunity to share best practice. I learned a range of different leadership strategies and was able to use these within my school work.”
“This programme has enabled me to develop as a leader and understand the roles that involves. It has helped me to identify my own leadership styles and how to use this to hold others to account. I am now confident in leading others in a coaching role. ”
“I have learnt an incredible amount on the face to face modules. Learning different styles of leadership has made me re-evaluate my current model. I no longer ‘assume’ what we do is the best way of doing things”
“This module, and in fact the whole of the NPQSL to date, has been the most useful and valuable CPD I have done in my ten years of teaching. It was also invaluable in helping me secure my long awaited first SLT role. Thank you”
