Abstract

Within this report we are seeking to investigate how coaching is being used within school, who is doing it and how it is evaluated by those using it. Without such information it is difficult to offer informed support to teachers and schools in this field.
The results of this work will identify the potential that a sample of head teachers see for coaching as a development tool for the future and indicate where schools are finding value in the coaching approach. Primarily we hope this will inform head teachers and those responsible for teacher development so they have access to the experience of others building best practice in the area. This information may also help to inform decisions of policy and strategy at all levels. It may help to shape the training offered by those with commissioning and provider roles for the development of teachers and leaders in schools. The findings of this report may help tailor provision to the specific needs of teachers and schools rather than using the generic commercial models of coaching currently on offer.
