General Description

Coaching in education is relatively new while mentoring has existed for some time. The purpose of both is to help people grow in both knowledge and practice. In this course we share a toolbox of strategies to support teachers as mentors using a coach-approach that encourages growth mindsets and supports wellbeing.


Please note this course works best when done in pairs so people have an opportunity to practice the skills learned throughout the program. This course is best suited to those teachers wanting to learn specific coaching and mentoring skills to better support beginning teachers all the way through to experienced teachers.
