WHAT IS COACHING IN EDUCATION?

“Coaching in education is defined as a ‘one-to-one conversation focused on the enhancement of learning and development through increasing self-awareness and a sense of personal responsibility, where the coach facilitates the self-directed learning of the coachee through questioning, active listening, and appropriate challenge in a supporting and encouraging climate.”

van Nieuwerburgh (2012)

HOW DOES COACHING IN EDUCATION WORK?

“For people to build their self-belief (thus improving personal wellbeing), in addition to accumulating successes, they need to know that their success is due to their own efforts. They must also know that other people believe in them, which means being trusted, allowed, encouraged, and supported to make their own choices and decisions.”

Whitmore (2017)

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF COACHING IN EDUCATION?

“Coaching is beneficial to increase resilience and confidence, cope with stressful situations, bounce back from obstacles and emotional detachment from a practical perspective. It helps to break typical thinking patterns, broaden views, opens trainees up to receiving feedback and gives them the chance to ‘see the forest for the trees.”

Sardar and Galdames (2018)
