Being appointed as a new Principal was a daunting challenge, however the mentoring and guidance were superb from the start. The technical expertise accompanied by an exceptional coaching approach were both instrumental in my preparation for an executive role. Having a coach of this calibre has empowered me to take on this exciting challenge with a calm and confident approach. I have already recommended this programme to many within my network and I will continue to encourage those within education leadership who are seeking to improve their performance to avail of this service

It is rare that school leaders get the opportunity to focus on their own professional development needs. Through these 1:1 and small group workshop sessions, JMC Education would like to offer you the opportunity to work through simple, practical techniques that will help you really focus on those things that matter most to you and your school. Participants will learn science-based techniques that help each of us gain clarity on where we are now, where we want to be; and explore strategies and options to move form one to the other.

This executive coaching is targeted at senior leaders of all levels of experience in state funded and independent schools and colleges across all phases based either in the UK or internationally, coaching and mentoring offers you the chance to share your professional development with an experienced school leader, international trainer and qualified coach.

These coaching sessions can be offered remotely or face to face depending on circumstances. We also offer a range of fully online self led courses for school leaders all under £30 !

The structure of our executive coaching sessions

We start the programme with an initial coaching needs analysis followed by five further 60-minute sessions. Although it is important that you own the area of professional development on which we focus, and that our sessions are controlled and structured by your needs and wants; this model is for a six-week programme with sessions one week to 10 days apart:

Coaching session 1

  • An explanation of how coaching and mentoring
  • An exploration of your needs and wants from coaching and mentoring
  • Our shared commitment to future sessions
