Q: What do schools and coaching have in common?

John Campbell proposes that education and coaching ‘share a common purpose: helping people to learn, grow and develop’ (Campbell and van Nieuwerburgh, 2018, p.3).

Student learning and development is the core business of school education. Learning however, is rarely talked about in isolation from teaching, which makes the role of the teacher critical in student learning. Coaching that focuses primarily on improving teacher practice or leadership practice may also improve student learning.

Hardships are the most important element in leadership development (Burns, Chapman & Guthrie, p.47).

The Oxford dictionary defines hardship as something that is difficult to endure and one of the causes of suffering.

It is my hope that the services and support provided by EdComm will equip teachers and schools in their mission to deliver biblically-based teaching and pastoral support for the students and families in their care.
