Masterclasses: Coaching for Excellence

Inspiring excellence in your own personal development

 

The Higher Education Academy's Coaching for Excellence offer includes a range of masterclasses and workshops that have been developed for those who teach and support learning in higher education. The offer includes a range of one and two day masterclasses to be delivered in-house to a group of staff to introduce and explore the concept of Coaching for Excellence.

Coaching is an important intervention that can boost and support your own learning and development (including CPD) at any stage of your career.   

The HEA has extensive knowledge and experience of the higher education sector including the aspirations and challenges for academics in this ever changing environment.

Benefits

A coach can help you to grow your self-awareness, build a detailed personal development plan and hold you accountable to this.  They can also support you if and when you transition to a new role or assume new responsibilities. Coaching can also be invaluable when you find yourself under pressure  and can help you to maintain your work-life balance and build your influence, leadership and management skills, all of which are important to your career progression in HE.

Developing your own coaching skills is also an essential part of your professional toolkit, especially in your student facing work in learning and teaching, for example in tutorials and in giving feedback to students as well as helping them to become proficient in independent study and problem solving. Coaching can also be invaluable when working with colleagues, for example in the peer supported review of teaching practice or working with module leaders from other schools and faculties, who may not report directly to you.

“Coaching is an intervention which helps someone to learn and develop using their own resources” ( Julie Starr, 2008)

Masterclass options

The focus of your masterclass is entirely driven by your needs and supported by your coach and looks at issues such as:

  • embedding a coaching culture;
  • coaching through change;
  • team coaching and development;
  • cognitive behavioural coaching and motivation interviewing.

 

The above list represents a few examples of why institutions may seek coaching for groups, however we recognise every need is different and would be happy to speak to you in person to discuss your specific needs. Masterclasses can be delivered for up to 20 delegates in-house, to suit you.
