    2022/2023 Cognitive Coaching Facilitated by: Gavin Grift

    Please note that this registration is for the 2022 Cohort, the 2021 Cognitive Coaching Cohort will complete the final six days of the program in the first half of 2022 having engaged in Day 1 and 2 in 2021.  

    In this eight day course leaders of learning will practice and internalise effective strategies to develop skills to support, coach and mentor others in their schools, to support the ongoing improvement and evaluation of professional practice.

    Cognitive Coaching is a research-based model that will capitalise upon and enhances cognitive processes. The course is highly recommended for all schools who seek to build leadership density and leverage change through critical dialogue. This course aims to build capacity by:

    • Assisting improvement and evaluation of pedagogy in your school context
    • Providing you and your team with strategies and ways of thinking and working, with potential to improve learning outcomes for all.

    Testimonials from leaders who have participated in this course affirm and highly recommend it.

    The Cognitive Coaching course was without doubt one of the best professional learning opportunities of my career.  I would encourage leaders in our schools to consider this as an essential course for their professional development. The course was well structured with helpful strategies and real applications that could be put into practice.  It developed a mindset of coaching which sits in a companion model, that is sitting alongside and supporting others in their formation and daily work, rather than just performance management. The eight-day course was packed with practical and interactive activities, superbly led by our facilitator.”   (Philip Donato, Head of Senior School, Saint Ignatius College)

    Up to 40 places are available to school leaders for this unique learning opportunity.

    ·             Explore all requirements for applying for certification as Highly Accomplished or                         Lead Teacher

    2023 Cognitive Coaching Facilitated by: Gavin Grift

    In this eight day course leaders of learning will practice and internalise effective strategies to develop skills to support, coach and mentor others in their schools, to support the ongoing improvement and evaluation of professional practice.

    Cognitive Coaching is a research-based model that will capitalise upon and enhances cognitive processes. The course is highly recommended for all schools who seek to build leadership density and leverage change through critical dialogue. This course aims to build capacity by:

    • Assisting improvement and evaluation of pedagogy in your school context
    • Providing you and your team with strategies and ways of thinking and working, with potential to improve learning outcomes for all.

    Testimonials from leaders who have participated in this course affirm and highly recommend it.

    The Cognitive Coaching course was without doubt one of the best professional learning opportunities of my career.  I would encourage leaders in our schools to consider this as an essential course for their professional development. The course was well structured with helpful strategies and real applications that could be put into practice.  It developed a mindset of coaching which sits in a companion model, that is sitting alongside and supporting others in their formation and daily work, rather than just performance management. The eight-day course was packed with practical and interactive activities, superbly led by our facilitator.”   (Philip Donato, Head of Senior School, Saint Ignatius College)

    Up to 40 places are available to school leaders for this unique learning opportunity.
