Who are we?
As senior leaders we experienced coaching and coached our colleagues. We appreciated that coaching optimised professional development and gave leverage to school improvement. The difficulty was making coaching actually happen!
We set up learning threes to encourage group coaching around improving lessons; established a schedule of peer to peer coaching; and tried a programme of voluntary coaching that focused on a small cohort of staff. Some interesting lessons were learned.
Our attempts taught us that new coaches slip in to mentoring very easily. That the administration around coaching takes as long as the coaching itself. And that starting a coaching programme is one thing but sustaining it is a different matter.
We persisted because we believe that good coaching is a necessity for improving performance and not a luxury.
We created Trust Me Coaching with that passionate faith in mind, taking heart from our previous experiences, and believing that it is possible to create a success coaching culture in every school and college.
