Coaching in Education: Getting better Results for Students, Educators and Parents will support educational organisations to learn more about the current interest in coaching approaches within schools, colleges and universities. With chapters on coaching in primary schools and secondary schools, with students, staff and parents, this book provides a sound basis for introducing coaching into any educational setting. This book brings together the latest national and international academic research with real case studies and a focus on practice that makes a difference for learners. Starting with a review of the existing literature and research into the area of coaching in education, the book goes on to consider the role of coaching educational leaders, coaching within the primary school setting and then secondary school settings.The notion of "mental toughness" and its relationship to coaching is also explored. The US and Australian perspectives on coaching in education are discussed in two chapters written by leading experts--instructional coaching in the US and the integration of positive and coaching psychology in Australia. This is followed by a chapter that focuses on coaching for parents, which is a growing area of interest. Finally, the book concludes with a practical consideration of creating "Coaching Cultures for Learning", proposing a number of models and next steps. Interesting case studies relating to coaching in primary schools, secondary schools and universities are also shared. Written by academics and expert educational practitioners, Coaching in Education is set to become the standard text for anyone interested in studying the subject. Even more importantly, it can be used to support educators who would like to develop coaching cultures for learning for their own students.
