Hi TLIFers

Our team is looking at using new approaches to coaching in order drive improved student success. We are focussing on our Pasifika group. We are targeting literacy as an area to focus on. 

I was hoping to open some conversations and discussions with people who are working on a similar field or have expertise that they would care to share with us. 

Looking forward to constructive engagement.

    Hi Kerry

    We use educational coaching at our place - utilising the CGI  GROWTH coaching model and have found it to be an outstanding vehicle for assisting teachers to improved outcomes for students - in particular our recent focus has accelerating learning for our Pacifika and Maori target students.  It is evidence based, with its basis on a collaborative conversation that has measurable outcomes.  

    Was that what you were meaning or were you on a different wavelength?

    Hi Steph

    Sorry about the delay. I have been away to Napier, lovely!

    Yes that is what we are looking at. Do you have any resources that you could share with me? I am familiar with the GROWTH model and ARA but am interested in the "evidenced based conversations that have measurable outcomes"? 

    Look forward to hearing from you.
