CAS have developed the CAS Leadership Coaching Academy designed to provide coaching training to CAS Ambassadors to help teachers unlock their potential and maximise their performance in the classroom. Completion of the programme leads to the BCS Certificate in Coaching for Computing Educators. We are delighted that 50 teachers have joined this programme and we are looking forward to seeing the outcomes from the teachers that they will be coaching.
Upon completing their training, coaches will be allocated teachers who have completed the NCCE Certificate in GCSE Computing Subject Knowledge (the CS Accelerator). The teachers will have the opportunity of working with the coaches to enable them to make decisions and choose pathways to develop their own pedagogical, reflective, performance and leadership approaches. This will be achieved through a series of one-to-one coaching conversations between the trained coaches and the coachees.
While being coached, teachers will be able to reflect and record the impact of the coaching and have the opportunity to undergo performance coaching training themselves in the future. This will enable them to take on the role of an academy coach to support future Computer Science Accelerator graduates, providing a cyclical programme of coaching and support for computing teachers.
