The tool provides a helpful outline of how coaching strategies and approaches can be used to develop a trainee’s understanding of how to observe lessons, identify best practice, reflect on how similar strategies can be employed in practice and make progress. The approaches are suitable for a mentor who is keen to develop his/her mentoring style and refine it to use a wide range of coaching strategies.  The tool makes use of the GROW model as a coaching tool to outline how coaching can be used in practice and to refine SEND practice for trainees.
