We believe that our colleagues are our most valuable resource, and that empowering and enabling them will enable us to transform the learning communities we serve. It’s important that the structures and systems we develop are sustainable, flexible and able to respond to change.
They must genuinely upskill colleagues and have a positive impact on the Trust long term. This is why we are encouraging colleagues across all subjects, phases and areas of responsibility to engage in coaching.
This year there are opportunities to engage either as a ‘thinker’ (coachee) or receive coach training to support colleagues to be increasingly self-sufficient, solution focused and confident in decision making. This is our first stage in developing coaching across the Trust.
Coaching opportunities are open to all colleagues – primary, secondary, teaching and support colleagues.
We are working with 3D Coaching who focus on teaching and supporting colleagues to develop their understanding of the core coaching competencies. Their focus is not on imparting knowledge but supporting colleagues to draw on their knowledge of the coaching competencies, to have transformational conversations and transformational impact in their professional setting.
