Our “Train-the-Coach” solution builds long-term instructional coaching capacity across schools, districts and systems. Instructional coaches are instrumental in developing teacher skills, building stronger instructional teams, transforming school culture, and ultimately, improving student achievement.
With Coaching Connections from Catapult Learning, our experienced coaching consultants work with your school or district to monitor and assess your coaches, and offer effective training and mentoring that builds their long-term capacity and sets them up for success both now and in the future. In addition to intensive PD and job-embedded coaching, our program also includes robust training resources that are aligned to six professional development modules and provides hands-on resources to support best practices. Ongoing support maximizes the ability to increase coordination and share resources across the implementation.
