While there is considerable commercial training available for coaching and mentoring, it is frequently not directly education focused. This programme draws significantly on the research undertaken by CfLaT on coaching for change in teaching which has gained national recognition, and also on the expertise of tutors and mentors within the university PGCE partnership.
It is also possible to study additional Masters-level modules, including a dissertation, in order to gain an MEd qualification.
If there are sufficient numbers of students in a school or cluster group, it is also possible to organise an out-posted group.
