Coaching for the classroom

History teacher and coach Sam Moinet speaks to the School Leadership Podcast about his experiences of the classroom and the mental health challenges faced by a forgotten majority of students in schools. He explains why expressions like ‘just think positive’ can be problematic, why we need to move from a reactive to a preventative model and how coaching can improve mental health. Plus there’s a quick coaching exercise to try for yourself. 

Sam set up Student Breakthrough after he witnessed how coaching helps students with attitudes to school, anxiety, confidence, personal growth, exams, and relationships with family and friends – so they become more confident, happy and successful.
