In this episode of the coaching in education podcast series we hear how Paul Bennett, Assistant Principal of Howick College in Auckland New Zealand, upscaled coaching in his school to a very impressive level. Paul shares how his initial attempts 'bombed' but with sheer determination and an eye on the research from schools around the world, he managed to turn things around. Howick College now boasts a coaching system where 12 specially trained coaches support an incredible 134 teachers on a fortnightly basis throughout the school year. Listen to Paul explain their 'Tracking Outcomes' programme, developed in collaboration with GCI, to regularly monitor and evaluate the impact of coaching at Howick. This is a truly inspiring example of what can happen when theory and good intentions meet reality.
