Course objectives
During communication with a pupil (or pupils), assistant’s activity requires adopting specific roles (e.g. a mentor, counsellor, critical friend, etc.) including the role of a coach. This way of interaction enables the assistant to cultivate pupils’ reflective thinking, help pupils to clarify their place in a collective or their attitude towards the subject or to name their own personal aims and specific steps leading to their achievement. The aim of the course is to help students to acquire techniques that enable this pupil’s self-development. Students make themselves familiar with basic principles of coaching (e.g. principle of trust and confidentiality in relationship with a pupil) and with selected knowledge (e.g. typology of questions or principle of the GROW model), which are necessary for practical management of a dialogue with features of coaching. By means of practical training, students will acquire basic skills (e.g. listening, purposeful asking, guiding through reflective process etc.) and attitudes (esp. the so-called attitude of curiousness, i.e. accepting individuality and creative potential of each pupil), which enable them to possitively influence their pupils’ development through a dialogue with features of coaching.
Learning outcomes
After completing the course, the student will: • demonstrate acquired knowledge, skills and attitudes during management of a dialogue focused on self-development with one of his/her pupils; • be able to explain, how to support pupils’ self-development effectively by means of coaching techniques – especially during individual work with a pupil, eventually also during group work (class work), or in other contexts of educational reality (e.g. communication with pupils’ parents).
  • 1. Pupil’s self-development, coaching in school practice, differentiation of coaching from other support forms, such as e.g. mentoring or therapy. 2. Making familiar with the GROW model, listening, curiousness attitude. 3. Work with aims (the SMART-ER model), contracting, and types of questions. 4. Guiding through the reflective process by means of the GROW model. 5. Training of dialogues focused on pupil’s self-development. 6.
