This course is aimed at coaches supporting our NPQH, NPQSL and NPQML programmes. The course provides an introduction to non-directive coaching using the GROW model. 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.



  • To have a clear understanding of what coaching is.
  • To be clear about the benefits of coaching, including the difference between counselling, mentoring and coaching.
  • To be able to use the GROW model to start coaching others.
  • To understand how coaching is a powerful tool for whole school and individual development.
  • To understand how to use coaching to support participants on QTL NPQH, NPQSL and NPQML


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.
