Description

Coaching in Schools

While many assume that coaching has been imported into education from other fields such as sports or psychology, it is reasonable to argue that education is the natural home of coaching. Coaching and education share the same purpose: helping people to learn, grow and develop.

In this seminar John Campbell & Christian van Nieuwerburgh will explore the place of coaching in the development of school leaders at all levels.
