WARNING! 'Coaching' in Schools is NOT all the same!

This Coaching Training Programme for Schools will give you the edge.

This New Way of Coaching is Essential for all Educators…

No matter what role we find ourselves in — Headteacher, line manager, teacher or support staff, to name just a few — we’re constantly busy, reacting to the day’s events, and feeling under pressure to perform and achieve good results.

The Problem is...

Too many school staff are stressed out, frazzled and strapped for time. So if you’re anything like most educators you’ll work long hours, and this sucks away time from your partner, friends and social activities. 

What’s more, your health suffers and you feel as if you never do anything thoroughly.

Because of this you rarely get time to stop and think!

So How Will This Help?

Imagine having coaching tools that will save you time because you’re using them in your everyday role – with colleagues, children and parents – as well as in ‘formal’ coaching sessions. 

When you’ve completed this training you’ll enjoy better leadership, increased quality of teaching, and better student outcomes. You’ll feel better. You’ll achieve more. And you’ll have more time for yourself.

Stress and high workload are driving so many people out of the education sector...

30% of new school leaders quit in the first five years. Not only that, but 67% of teachers are stressed at work, and at the present time 1 in 83 teachers are on long-term absence because of stress and mental health issues. So it’s no wonder that recruiting and retaining good quality staff in schools is so challenging! 

Consequently, if you’re feeling ‘stressed’ it’s hardly surprising, because if you’re working long days, evenings, weekends it means you never have any time either for yourself (or for your family). In short, that’s obviously going to take its toll on you. And this problem isn’t going to fix itself unless you decide fix it today.

And what’s the consequence of not solving it today?

Broken relationships. Burnout. And health problems.

As a result you’ll have more staff either going off sick or leaving, and whenever that happens it obviously affects the quality of teaching and learning – and your school’s budget. Indeed, research shows it costs over £30k on average to replace someone, and you’ve then got to wait around 8 months for them to reach their optimum level of performance.

All in all it’s no wonder that working in schools becomes so stressful over time – but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Because when you’ve got the knowledge, tools and strategies which are taught on this coaching training, then both your job and your life will become a whole lot easier. 

You’ll have more time to plan and work on the more important strategic stuff. Consequently, you’ll get more done with less effort. So you’ll feel a lot less stressed and under pressure. What’s more, you’ll sleep better.

As a result, you’re going to become an even better leader or teacher, and because you’ve learnt these skills you’ll also be able to help others to do the same. In summary, you’ll be able to ensure that your school becomes the best it can be.

Here’s what other people are saying about the unique ‘Coaching in Schools’ Programme…

“Annie’s approach has revolutionised how we empower colleagues to make the difference in their classrooms. 

It’s timely, targeted and most importantly the impact is felt across our school community. 

Not all coaching is the same. If you are thinking of investing in a coaching model then invest in this one – it works!”

Amanda Simpson, Headteacher, Tunbridge Wells Grammar School for Boys

I’ve been a Headteacher for many years, with the heavy responsibility of spending public money wisely. I have never before been in a position to say this, but I’m going to say it now…

…If you can only spend your professional development budget on one thing, then invest it in starting your own coaching revolution in your school using Annie’s system.

The learning is extremely cost-effective and represents excellent value for money (music to your business manager’s ears!)

It can be applied with staff, students, parents, and in one’s personal life. There is no sell-by date; the coaching system will keep producing amazing results in many years to come.”

Monica Austin, Headteacher, Ashcroft High School

“We have put well over 40 teachers and support staff through this training and use it with colleagues in partner schools because it works!

The methodology of the training means that skills are built up over time and stick.

The results are tangible and can be personalised so that both coaches and coachees are motivated to participate – and to come back for more.

We have seen the impact in school in terms of classroom practice, leadership, time management and workload management. It is the backbone of our CPD programme.”
