This is THE MOST EFFECTIVE Training in Observing & Giving Feedback for School Leaders

Unique Observation & Feedback System gets Quick Results (Without Stress!)

Doing Teacher Observations & Giving Feedback Effectively is Crucial!

Many school staff are responsible for developing others. This includes teacher observations and giving feedback on performance. Staff are often expected to carry out this crucial role with little or no training, meaning a lot of people in your school will find this a huge challenge.

Research shows that…

Most staff find giving feedback stressful – especially if they have to give ‘difficult’ messages.

Many staff on the receiving end of teacher observations report feeling judged, frustrated and disempowered. To make matters worse, giving feedback can be time-consuming for you. So even if you spend an hour giving feedback it doesn’t guarantee improvement! There’s often no consistent approach across the school either.

So How Will This System Help?

Imagine conducting teacher observations ‘Coach-Style’ using a model which is proven to make feedback a far more valuable, positive and empowering experience. 

It makes ‘difficult conversations’ feel really easy. And it quickly improves practice. In fact, it only takes around 3-7 minutes. What’s more, you can use this system to improve performance in virtually any aspect in your school.

It’s frustrating when all of this time spent on teacher observations & giving feedback isn’t leading to the improvements in performance or outcomes that you’d expect.

The problem is, if you don’t have this effective observation and feedback system in your school, you risk leaving line managers feeling ‘stressed’ or ’embarrassed’ every time they need to have these conversations. They end up dreading it. (Some observers even email their observation feedback to avoid this, which can easily be misinterpreted and have detrimental effects. That’s assuming, of course, teachers actually read the email!)

It becomes a “done to them”, not “done with them” process. 

Worse still, little changes as a result of the observation and feedback – even though observers have pointed out exactly what’s wrong and how to fix it! They just don’t understand why things aren’t improving – and at times they feel like tearing their hair out!

You may have noticed people on the receiving end of feedback either arguing, becoming defensive, or going away feeling so upset that they want to leave the profession. As a result their confidence drops and their health suffers. They feel demoralised, demotivated and deflated. So it’s hardly surprising that some schools are haemorrhaging staff when this is the case!

Obviously, this problem isn’t going to fix itself, so it’s important for you to deal with it now.

Otherwise teachers won’t improve as much as they could. The stress and frustration will still be there. And the school won’t move forward in the way you’d like it to. When this happens it’s obviously going to affect your budget, and the quality of teaching and learning.

The good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way.

When you’ve learnt how to conduct teacher observations and give ‘coach-style’ feedback using our system you’ll instantly eliminate these problems.

You’ll save time. You’ll stop inconsistency. And you’ll get rid of stress. What’s more, you’ll quickly improve performance, leading to better outcomes.

You can also use this 'observation and feedback' system with ANYONE you line manage – whatever their role!

(eg Leaders, teaching staff, admin/office staff, site staff etc)

AND you can apply it to ANY aspect of the school’s provision.

(eg leading a meeting, teaching and learning, leading an assembly, midday supervision, maintaining the site, etc)

Key Benefits of this System

Teachers and SLT who have experienced these ‘coach-style’ observations and feedback report that they find them ‘developmental’ and ‘helpful’, rather than ‘judgemental’ and ‘stressful’!

Absolutely anyone! If you have to give somebody feedback on their performance then this training is definitely for you – whatever your role.

No. You’ll be able to use this to feed back to anyone on anything! When you use this method it’ll instantly improve the quality and consistency of performance.

Our system is unique. If you’ve already done other feedback training this will take it to the next level. Our model will save you time and have greater impact.

Yes! In fact, using it with trainees and apprentices has dramatically accelerated their progress and development.

In a nutshell, because it’s not! …It’s observing & feeding back; it’s not sitting down and having a coaching conversation! (Unfortunately, some schools mistakenly call this ‘coaching’, which results in a lot of confusion!)

This observation & feedback training fits well with coaching because it takes ‘The Coach Approach’ into observations and feedback.
