Consultation and coaching

Consultation and Coaching Programmes are more intensive and require frequent contact between our coaches and classroom practitioners. Debate Mate works with schools to set goals and evaluate impact. Coaches work with practitioners over a series of sessions to build a relationship and provide a truly bespoke programme of development. Since the focus of the training is on improving student outcomes, coaches guide educators during planning sessions and reflection conversations. Debate Mate can support in collecting student data to ensure any programme is driven by student impact.

Consultation programmes combine traditional in-person training with classroom based observation, team teaching and remote support. These programmes are designed to bridge the gap between theory and practice to reduce the barriers to implementation and improve student outcomes.
