Releasing excellence in leadership and learning

Director:Jennie Pennant

Schools currently face many challenges: raising standards, developing the workforce, increasing the quality of teaching and supporting the personalisation of learning, to name a few.

The GrowLearning coaching approach can help school leaders and teachers effectively address these issues as it:

  • ✔ supports collective responsibility for students' learning and fosters reflective practice.
  • ✔ engenders a culture of openness, mutual trust, respect and support amongst staff.
  • ✔ helps maximise the contribution that everyone makes to students' learning.
  • ✔ contributes to the raising of standards.
