Creating Space is believed to be the first programme of its kind in the UK offering free coaching, in partnership with award-winning charity Yes Futures, to support the wellbeing of teachers throughout the pandemic. The programme convened an enriching breadth of coaching experience that has already received enormously positive feedback from the participating teachers.
One of the chief curators and integral figures of the programme is Dr Keith Watson, an Animas coach with a vast and colourful career of over 30 years in education. Keith played a pivotal role, working closely in a mentoring capacity alongside our Head of Social Impact, Emma Koubayssi as she designed and developed Creating Space. Keith continues to be integral to shaping the learning reflections for furthering the role of coaching in the education space.
Sitting down with Keith in conversation guarantees a space of intrigue, wisdom and thought-provoking reflections. Keith blends best practice and insights together with wider reflections for furthering the value of coaching in education. Listening to Keith promises to stimulate thinking around the role coaching can play in teaching as well the scope and potential for coaching in education programmes.
“There is a growing appetite amongst leaders to welcome coaching as a means of developing skills and a space to talk”.
