Coaching Skills Training – 1 Day Course

An Introduction to Coaching


This will help you to be clear about what coaching is (and isn’t), give you the tools to get started, and help you build your coaching confidence.

You’ll get to grips with this powerful skill through:

  • observing a live demonstration coaching session
  • an introduction to 2 key coaching tools
  • using opportunities to practise your developing coaching skills during the day
  • practical ways to start coaching in your school
By far the best CPD which has had the most impact on me in 10 years of teaching. This session brought about a huge attitude shift in me. I could instantly see the benefits in the long and short term.
Colin McAlpine, Dulwich College SG, Singapore

You’ll also get a sense of what it’s like to be coached, and what a positive and empowering experience this can be!

You'll leave these training days with a set of tools and proformas to start coaching your colleagues towards achieving their professional development goals, & tackle challenges positively & productively.

What Teachers say about the 1-day courses ...

Loved today. Very helpful. I feel empowered!!!
Roseanne Rice, FS2 Teacher, Southglade School

Debbie’s session was challenging, thought-provoking and encouraged us to go forward as a leadership team. We now all feel very confident to implement coaching in our school. This will clearly benefit our school and we are grateful to Debbie for opening our eyes! Thank you.
Pauline, Deputy Head, London

I thought it was easy to respond / be open to discuss ideas, as Debbie has a clear, relaxed persona when presenting.
Cath, Class Teacher, Parkside School

A good introduction to coaching in a non-threatening and informative way.
Wendy, SLT member, Hillingdon

The training was thought-provoking and enlightening. I can see great potential to use coaching as a method to raise standards in the school.
