Based on best international business practice, but rooted in education, the AoEA Coaching offer consists of five, half-day, sessions over the academic year, which are designed to take participants from an introductory stage to systemic organisational approaches either at school, LA, MAT, regional or national level. All sessions will be a mix of theory and practice and build on highly successful and well received courses run over the last two years.
This session will build on levels 1 and 2 and look to forward and deepen coaching practice by introducing advanced coaching techniques. It will also mark a subtle change, which demands that thinking moves towards how best to introduce coaching into the team setting, with a view to becoming part of a small-scale system.
We will consider your coaching approach and thoughts, and challenge you in the practical sessions. We will explore: chemistry; the coaching state; co-active approaches; return to OSKAR and ZOUD; discuss beginnings, middles, and endings; intuition; body language; and BAGs.
Who is delivering the course?
Tony Markowski and Éamonn Whelan will be leading the programme. Both enjoyed successful careers in education and now advise national and regional boards, MATs, LAs, Headteachers and their teams. They are accredited Executive Coaches, therapeutic counsellors and Senior Associates of the Association of Educational Advisers, on whose Development Board they sit.
What goes on in the sessions?
The model is a blend of formal presentation, question and answer sessions, case study review and supported practical activity. As well as a general introduction to the principles and characteristics of coaching, participants will be offered tools and strategies to support leaders and staff, at all levels.
What happens if I miss a session?
There will be opportunities to catch up between sessions. Information is available from the AoEA administration team – please email email@example.com or call the office on 0191 820 3114.

All sessions will be pragmatic, pacy and outcome focused, so that participants go away confident in a new set of practical skills they can apply between sessions. We will ask participants to keep journals of ongoing practice that will feed into their case studies for Levels 4&5.
