Our experts discuss the differences between coaching and mentoring, with some examples of what each approach entails and sets out to achieve, as well as what they look like in practice.

We ask how headteachers can get started with introducing coaching or mentoring as part of CPD and professional learning for staff in their school. We discuss the different models, important principles to keep in mind, tips and insights for how they can be applied, and ideas for coaching and mentoring conversations and activities.

We also consider how coaching and mentoring can develop your school’s leadership capacity, transform systems across the school, and create a resilient workforce. And we touch upon using coaching and mentoring to support pupils too.
