Coaching, leadership and motivation in education


The “Coaching, Leadership, and Motivation in Teaching” course is designed to provide teachers and educators with essential skills to become effective leaders in the classroom and motivate students to reach their full potential. Through a combination of theory and practice, participants will gain a deep understanding of coaching, leadership, and motivation concepts and learn how to successfully apply them in their educational context.
This course is aimed at teachers, educators, school administrators, and education professionals who wish to enhance their leadership skills, develop coaching abilities, and maximize student motivation.

Coaching can address a range of characteristics and developmental needs that contribute to the effectiveness of a teacher. Teacher coaching in schools takes various forms, but is commonly conceived as a means of providing personalised professional support to teachers through discussion about their practice.
Coaching takes time to organise and facilitate within any organisation, and as time is precious in all schools it is important that coaching, where used, works to maximum effect. This course is designed to be of value both to schools who are planning to develop coaching to enhance teaching and learning as a new endeavour and to those where coaching already exists. It will provide guidance for establishing models of coaching which are:

  • focused on enhancing teaching and learning
  • beneficial to all coaching participants in terms of professional learning sustainable over the long term.
