Our Mid and Early Career Teachers are such a precious resource…full of energy, creativity, passion and talent…yet we lose a third of them in the first 5 years of their teaching career. *
We have to change this!
Coaching provides high levels of support (as well as challenge) for our early teachers to explore their unique paths – and enjoy learning about themselves as they travel onwards in their careers.
This growth in self-awareness can be absolutely ‘transformative’ to a teacher’s practice – and indeed their whole career path. Most teachers can teach – and teach well!
It’s all the other ‘stuff’ that is often such a challenge; and this is where the development of strong personal qualities is so important. Amongst other inner resources, coaching helps teachers develop resilience, self-confidence, courage, positivity and self-compassion.
This is what makes all the difference in the world to our amazing teachers – and will keep them thriving in their classrooms!
