Being awarded the Coaching Quality Mark instantly brands your school as top of its class.
This prestigious award is universally acknowledged as the pinnacle of achievement in the Education Coaching industry and is a highly sought-after and high-value kite-mark of excellence.
When you’ve successfully created a coaching culture in your school you’ll be able to take your place as one of the industry’s finest performers alongside previous winners, which include well-known names like Passmores Academy (from the ‘Educating Essex’ TV series).
How does the Coaching Quality Mark process work?
The Coaching Quality Mark™ offers you and your Senior Leadership Team the chance to evaluate the coaching practice and impact in your school. When you register for this award you’ll be able to have a telephone consultation with a Coaching Quality Mark™ Assessor to establish your areas of existing good practice, identify any areas that need to be developed, and answer any questions you may have.
You’ll then complete your action planning, implement it and start to produce a portfolio of evidence to demonstrate how each of the five CQM Standards are being met.
…But don’t worry – you’re not on your own!
As you work towards the Coaching Quality Mark™ you’ll have access to unlimited help and advice from the CQM support team. (And if you’d like additional face-to-face support, your Adviser will arrange a subsidised consultancy rate for you).
Once you’ve submitted your portfolio the quality and effectiveness of your school’s coaching will be assessed by a panel of education coaching experts. You’ll then be informed of the outcome or date of your assessor’s visit if any additional verification is needed.
You’ll also benefit from helpful feedback, practical advice and any recommended action steps to help your school make greater impact through coaching.
Who is the Coaching Quality Mark for?
