Having a Coaching Conversation

This workshop has been designed to support staff at all levels to engage with a coaching.  The context for the workshop and the coaching conversations is the PRD process.

The revised GTC Standards state that as a registered teacher to demonstrate your professional skills and abilities you are required to ‘commit to lifelong learning, through an ongoing process of professional review and development that impacts on the learning of children and young people’. (SFR 3.3.2).

Line managers are encouraged to lead and work collaboratively to ‘develop coaching and mentoring skills and promote the use of coaching and mentoring principles and approaches which support professional learning and foster a culture of peer support, commitment and collegiality’. (SML 3.3.2)

Designed for: PRD Reviewers & Reviewees

Tutor: Agnes Hendry
