Effective Coaching to support School Leadership NPQH, NPQSL and NPQML
The next Coaching course will be on 30th November 2018
One day (9am - 4pm)
To reserve your place please contact QTL@winchester.ac.uk
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.
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 cannot think of anything that would improve the quality, content or method of delivery. QTL's NPQH programme hit every button and I would recommend it to all who aspire to headship.”
“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 sessions. 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 is the best CPD I have ever received, a completely cohesive programme that really tackled the key issues of leadership - Feb 2018”
“I am gaining so much from this course especially my ability to reflect on different practices. Everything we have read and discussed has been very relevant to the Headteacher role and our projects - Jan 2018”
“There were some excellent discussions, lots of helpful advice, and a clear picture of how we move forward. I left all the sessions feeling more confident about both my course, and my role within my school - Jan 2018”
“My home school went from RI to Outstanding. In my new position as Headteacher the programme provided me with the confidence to create a vision and start to move my school out of RI.”
“The course enabled me to use my learning in everyday leadership tasks. I managed to test theories and learn from peers in an open and trustful environment. With each face to face I grew in belief and transferred that to my workplace.”
