This unit will provide the necessary knowledge, skills and understandings for educators to lead effective coaching and mentoring programs for teachers, managers, aspiring leaders and educational teams. It will cover strategies such as coaching, mentoring and supervision and will explore the characteristics, similarities, differences, benefits and challenges of leading these various approaches in educational settings. In particular, the unit will focus on skills that leaders can develop to enhance the professional learning and growth of educators in effective and rigorous coaching and mentoring programs.
