Coaching Support

Coaching encourages, stretches, and pushes others to take responsibility for their development, set goals, take action and grow (AITSL website).

Coaching support is available for middle leaders, assistant principals, RECs/MCs and all principals.

The role of our coaches is twofold: firstly, to support leaders in developing the mindset and capabilities that result in organisational effectiveness, quality teaching and healthy, sustainable leadership practices; and secondly, to support leaders in implementing strategies that inform positive well-being practices to manage the complex demands of their role.

At the core of the Leadership Coaching Program is the desire to further build the collective capacity and shared commitment of all school leaders in positively influencing student outcomes.

Coaches serve as trusted colleagues and co-learners with colleagues. Coaches are highly proficient and experienced educational leaders who possess a high level of professional competency across a range of key areas and a demonstrated record of excellence in leading school improvement.

Coaches can also support staff in identifying, tracking and evaluating progress towards their PP&D goals.
