    13. 13. Collaboration Being able to speak with colleagues about issues. It has been a good platform to discuss with other practitioners challenges faced and possible strategies to overcome them. Allowing some time for collaboration Opportunity to share good practice and get advice from others. It has been good to meet other members of staff. I have also made good relationships with my coaching trio. It has provided me with a time for reflection, goal setting and thinking about processes. Great bonds built with staff.
    14. 14. Support Offloading of problems. It provides me with a support system. Able to support colleagues. I have had the opportunity to air professional issues I have and been supported in finding solutions to them.
    15. 15. Less Positive Comments I feel the format of the coaching structure is too restrictive and should be done when I feel there is a problem and not when I am forced to It was too monitored and overly structured and involved too much recording of topics. The most valuable part of it was the opportunity to discuss practice, issues and to 'download' on others, the focus on the structure was limiting. I find it a waste of time that could be spent doing something useful that would aid my own progression and that of my students - such as marking or planning. The fact that we have to write a report of each session undermines what it is supposed to be about. It simply feels like an exercise to monitor staff and keep them in line. Coaching is undervalued by Leadership group
    16. 16. Teaching and Learning ideas Sharing of T&L ideas. Makes you set aside the time to reflect on teaching, learning and how to address obstacles. Improved my practice and given me options for improving practice It has enabled me to focus on problems I have with a particular class. Good impetus to improve teaching and learning. It has made me focus on a particular aspect of my lesson.
    17. 17. Teaching and Learning Increased awareness of strategies used by other staff members or in other CAs. Able to use questions in my assessments of learning; Able to guide rather than tell students what to do through questioning. It really has helped me to focus on strategies to help me with a particular group. Able to use good listening skills with students. If nothing else it has made me more conscious and aware of teaching methods, styles, etc. When I assess their work, I now ask more reflective questions and create a dialogue. I am able to listen to my students and avoid interrupting their flow of ideas.
    18. 18. Focus It really has helped me to focus on strategies to help me with a particular group. It has made me focus on one particular group and think of strategies to help them. Helped with thinking problems through to search for alternative solutions.
    19. 19. Professional Development The way the coaching programme is structured, has allowed me to delve deep into teaching practise resource bank and encouraged me to research new questioning strategies to implement in my lessons, thus improving my class room practice. I have become more confident in my teaching. Lots of self-development has occurred following and during coaching sessions. Helped me cope with challenging situations. It makes you ‘face up’ to things rather than ignore them. Has resolved some classroom issues that I thought would not be easy to deal with.
