About this session
We know, from our own experience, that it is more empowering if we can do things for ourselves. We also instinctively know that it is better, when we are working with a student, if we can help that student to rely on their own resources to solve a particular problem or address a particular issue, rather than us just swooping in and solving things for the student. This practical 2-hour online session will explore ways in which we can help students rely less on us and more on themselves - a really important life skill.
Who is this session for?
This session is relevant to teams and cohorts who work with students in higher education and who might find themselves providing a student with support.
Academic colleagues - such as personal tutors, module leaders, and lecturers
Professional services practitioners - such as disability advisers, welfare advisers, finance advisers, or international student advisers
Colleagues working in a university enquiry service, a faculty or service front desk team, or a university helpdesk
Colleagues managing student conduct cases
Managers of student-facing teams who may need to support their team members in interactions with students
Students' union advisers
While this training is aimed at higher education, colleagues in further education or other similar settings will also find the content very relevant.
By the end of this course, participants will:
Explore what coaching is, how it differs from other types of work we might do to support a student, and why a coaching style can be so effective
Understand the GROW coaching model and how to frame effective coaching questions
Use a couple of case studies to reflect on what coaching looks like in practice.
