The ICP provides training to members of your school’s faculty to become resident Hidden Sparks coaches and resources for the school as they are trained and mentored in understanding and teaching to diverse learning styles and behaviors. We will support them as they provide classroom centered coaching and strategies for children. Please watch the videos below to find out more.
Training and support are at the core of this program. During the “Internal Coach-in-training” period, we will provide your select faculty member(s) with:
- The ICP Course: 6 days of formal training (4-day Learning Lenses course & 2-day Internal Coach training) + one half day of program shadowing in a local school.
- Mentoring: 7 one-on-one, half-day mentoring sessions at your school.
- Regional Group Meetings: Facilitated, small group practicums which focus on the key coaching skills of observation, debriefing, and workshop facilitation.
as well as participation in an annual Coach Retreat.
All dates are found in the timeline to the right.
