Course overview

The Coaching and Mentoring for Teacher Development PGCert offers teachers, school leaders and other educators the means by which to investigate existing and potential coaching and mentoring practice in their own professional setting. It makes links with national policy frameworks and research evidence.

This course draws on the expertise developed in the Research Centre for Learning and Teaching, which is based in the School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences. Course tutors are active researchers and all teach and supervise across a range of courses. This provides them with a wide knowledge base and a genuine concern for the challenges of educational contexts.

There are two modules; one based on investigating coaching and mentoring, and the other on improving it. The modules encourage you to develop quality approaches to meeting the demands of supporting others' professional development in their workplace.

The course also helps participants develop informed excellence in the role of coaches and mentors.

Coaching and mentoring are labels given to a range of approaches based on professional dialogue and collaboration. This course is therefore suitable for teachers and other educators - whether you are in the early stages of your career or taking significant responsibilities for educational excellence and actively supporting other professionals.

Module participants can come from across educational phases (early years to HE) and between educational sectors (schools, museums, colleges and universities, and educational consultancies). This diversity helps to create a dynamic and supportive learning environment in which you learn considerably from fellow participants as well as from the course leaders.

Professional bodies like the ICF, EMCC and APECS recommend that practitioners in coaching and mentoring have a high quality qualification at master’s level. It is essential for people wanting to become a coach/mentor, independent consultant, coaching/mentoring lead, scheme coordinator or executive consultant.

This programme is both research and practice informed and focuses on the latest skills, knowledge and techniques. It is supported by key authors in the field.

Course detail

The programme is designed to meet the needs of adult learners who wish to develop their knowledge of coaching and mentoring, and to develop key practical abilities.

Coaching and mentoring are underpinned by two important philosophies. First, ‘people are experts in their own life and work’ and second, ‘the solution lies within’. In practice this means that coaching and mentoring are processes which enable and facilitate independent thinking, autonomy and self- efficacy.

This programme creates an environment in which participants work collaboratively to share information and insights and to develop knowledge and skills in the tradition of the ‘coaching and mentoring way’.
