Well, usually, we would think that why would you, or anyone, anywhere be interested in the fact that a group of people you do not know and who you are not part of, went to a meeting in Sweden. But, in this case, if you are interested in coaching in education to improve the climate in your school or VET centre, you will be happy to know that we have met in November 2022 to start work on some free tools and resources for you.
We have discussed at our first in person meeting the importance of a holistic approach in education, and how the coaching approach can help create a good school climate. We have worked in small groups, to tease out what the most important elements for our approach will be, especially considering our different local and national contexts, needs and resources. Elements that stood out, which we all agreed on were:
Some of these are obvious points, but it is important to lay them down as a foundation for the materials we will share with you in the near future.
For now, we have started to research best practices, and we are designing some questionnaires to gather information about the needs of you, the teachers, the students and the schools. We will soon publish more information on this website.
The COACH project has been co-financed with the support of the European Union’s ERASMUS+ programme. Its contents and materials are the sole responsibility of its authors. The Commission cannot be held responsible for any use which may be made of the information contained therein. It will be implemented from September 2022 to August 2024. (Funding ref.
