Searching for Excellence in Education with Bob Cox


Support for Leadership & Management including Coaching  

Leadership and Management Support

Bob has supported management and leadership training at many schools, helping schools to become more rigorous and more strategic.  The aim is always the same: to assist in ‘the search for excellence’ and help school leaders, managers and teachers develop their skills and self-belief.

“I feel more of a team now with the group as a whole.”

“Team coherence has boosted my belief that things can get better.”

“The fluid agenda that Bob created allowed the flexibility to explore what was really important.”

The aim is always to enhance middle leaders’ skills, confidence and ability to:
  • Understand ‘what is good learning?’
  • Understand how effective leadership and management raises standards
  • Give appropriate and productive feedback

  • Work as a team of middle leaders in the school

    1. Classroom observation skills and feedback
    2. What is good leadership?

    5. Using data to inform action and improvement
    6. Staff management
  • Standardising across a department and across a school to assess the level of challenge
  • Monitoring and Evaluation to assess the level of improvement


Coaching


Bob has coached teachers in different types of schools cross-phase.  He can negotiate longer term contracts to work with schools, or he can give support on a ‘one-off’ basis.  Coaching of teachers is one of the principal ways that schools can improve the level of pupils’ learning.  The teachers receive expert advice which can boost their skills where it matters – in the classroom!

‘Bob has undertaken coaching sessions with ten members of staff, all of whom were keen to further improve their practice.  Feedback from staff has been highly positive, and our evaluations of teaching performance emphasise the role he has played in improving teaching and, by extension, improving student outcomes.’
Edwin Towill, Deputy Head
