Advanced Instructional Coaching course

Seven Teaching School Hubs across the East of England are running a pilot project in association with NASBTT.

Seven Teaching School Hubs across the East of England are running a pilot project in association with NASBTT to write and deliver a bespoke Advanced Instructional Coaching course, starting in January 2023.

This course will be delivered online in five twilight sessions, all focused on advanced instructional coaching theory and practical techniques. It is aimed at experienced mentors, lead mentors, CPD leads, subject curriculum leads for Trusts, or anyone who works on improving teaching and learning across a school using an instructional coaching approach.

This course is not for beginners to Instructional Coaching, but rather for those wishing to advance their knowledge of the theory behind deliberate practice. It will offer support on how to set small action steps, supported by effective modelling to improve teaching and learning. We will explore examples of effective approximations of practice in a low-stakes way, supported by precise feedback, and culminating in recomposition of practice in a lesson context. We will also offer video examples of this in practice with both primary and secondary teachers which can be shared in your context.

The course will run over five sessions on the dates below. To receive the NASBTT Advanced Instructional Coaching certificate, participants need to attend all five sessions.

Session Date Time
1: Introduction 24 Jan 2023 4-5.45pm

The cost for the five-session course is:

  • £300 for Primary schools
  • £400 for Secondary schools
  • £400 for ITT Providers.

For this cost, schools may send as many colleagues they wish on the course, as long as they are experienced in instructional coaching.

Once you have registered your school/organisation, we will contact you to request the names and email addresses of your colleagues who will be attending the course, so we can contact them directly with Zoom links for the sessions. Please ensure that colleagues attending the course have all the session dates saved in their calendars, as they will need to attend all five sessions in order to receive the NASBTT Advanced Instructional Coaching certificate.
