Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

Coaching in Schools presents a pocketful of practical skills and strategies for improving performance and raising attainment at every level in school. Discover how to develop positive, solution-focused coaching in school through using various tools. Enable high quality, thoughtful dialogues; learn to build rapport, question, listen and give feedback in roles as a both a coach and a coachee. Coaching approaches can be used in school to:

• Help teachers become even more influential and motivational

• Create strategic development plans

• Support troubled students at risk of exclusion

• Improve performance management dialogues

• Build a common language to support culture change

• Develop high-performing leadership teams

• Build hope and optimism in schools in need of improvement

• Empower children as independent learners

• Create positive outcomes in challenging parental relationships

Evidence underpinning this approach

The Coaching in Schools solutions-focused approach is a supportive and collaborative conversation about learning and growth. The book’s focus on facilitating the coachee’s own thinking and encouraging responsibility and ownership is inherently a capacity-building experience. Coaching in Schools supports all readers to:

Develop independence and enhance creativity in their teams and classes

Understand the psychology of high performance behaviours including growth mindsets

Enhance resilience and optimism during change

Redefine the potential of each member of the team and class

Improve communication and collaboration by clarifying outcomes and intent

Experience a sense of achievement and autonomy by discovering their own solutions

Become stronger, feel supported and more capable

As David Rowsell, Principal of the British International School of Washington enthuses, ‘In the last 20 years I have engaged Andy Vass to work with all our staff in 3 schools in 3 different nations. Why? Because his outstanding reflective approach is the best support I have ever found for great professionals seeking to be even better at serving young people.’

How users/participants can evaluate success

Case studies detail teachers describing the benefits of solution-focused coaching variously as:

• Thinking more clearly about things

• Feeling valued and listened to

• Recognising and appreciating their skills and resources

• Increasing their range of options

• Clarifying how they’d like things to be as they get even better

• Understanding what they need to do to get there

• Becoming more creative and optimistic

• Feeling more positive and confident about change
