The Power of Coaching

The Power of Coaching

Through the Bury Teaching School Alliance (BTSA) both our Head teacher and Deputy Head teacher have been trained as facilitators of the POC on behalf of the BTSA. The POC,as stated by its creators OLEVI,  aims to enhance the leadership of teaching and learning through promoting effective coaching.

Within Bury the POC is currently delivered as part of the OTP.  During the academic year 2015-2016 our school collaborated with Stephen Holden Head teacher of Tottington Primary  to co-facilitate the POC at Unsworth. Some of our own staff acted as participants within the programme and the rest of the staff were involved in sharing their practice within the learning walk that happened within our school.

Below you will find details about the structure of the POC, information on how you can contact the BTSA to register an interest in the programme and read quotes from the feedback that participants have given based on their experiences of the POC and of their experiences within our school. 

“Lovely to feel the whole school vibe.”
