Coaching and Mentoring for Teachers.

 

Due to the unexpected craziness of 2020, we have redesigned our programs to meet the needs of school leaders better.

Our programs have always been virtual, but we have created some shorter options to assist with staff professional development in this strange time.

2020 is presenting unique challenges for schools. Principals and their teams are supporting teachers and students in both virtual and face to face contexts.

We Teach Well endorses wholeheartedly the idea that supporting a teacher’s professional growth is the best way to ensure that all students become successful learners, confident and creative individuals and active, informed citizens. 

Our interactive virtual workshops help teachers and staff develop their skills and confidence. It is this development of confidence and skill that leads to better outcomes for students.

Using the Australian Teacher Performance and Development Framework and the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers as a base, we have created coaching and mentoring packages aimed at bringing your staff through this pandemic stronger and more confident than ever.

We Teach Well understands that teachers are multi-faceted and when they reflect on their whole person, their professional goal-setting becomes much more effective.

WTW Group Coaching

A combination of group and individual sessions. Designed to target specific goals while highlighting the value of professional conversations in shaping pedagogy.

WTW Individual Coaching

A choice of 3, 5 or 7 individual, 1 on 1 sessions to address areas specific to the participant. For many, these will involve ways of managing the current difficulties.

WTW Coaching for Out of Field English teachers

Usually out of field English teachers are supported by a strong faculty.

Then covid-19 happened and everything went remote.

Include a We Teach Well Mentoring and Coaching program as part of a high quality, successful professional development strategy.

Imagine going home at night knowing your teachers are getting the support they need.

That participating staff:

  • are becoming more confident with both face to face and remote teaching and learning.
  • have increased confidence that will translates to better outcomes for your students.
  • have a safe space to reflect on their pedagogy and explore possibilities.
  • have access to confidential systems that will assist in relieving stress.

Most importantly, knowing that you have provided your staff with practical ways of setting and achieving professional goals.

Expressions of interest for 2021 programs will open in September 2020

Program for New Teachers

New teachers are more effective when they can learn from experienced colleagues through supportive and motivating relationships.

Program for Out of Field English Teachers

The number of teachers teaching out of field is growing and many argue that it is one of the reasons for poor retention. Teachers who don’t feel confident will struggle with the daily practice of teaching.

Program for English and Literature Teachers

Experienced teachers can benefit from mentoring. Particularly if they are preparing for positions of added responsibility.
