Apply to be an ERW Emotion Coaching Lead

As part of the Attachment Aware School Project, ERW is seeking to develop a team of Emotion Coaching (EC) Leads.

Whole school implementation of Emotion Coaching (EC) is increasingly seen as a necessary base-line of universal provision in an attachment aware school. Therefore, in order to support implementation, ERW would like to pilot a programme of support for selected schools based around a team of teachers from across the region who will act as Emotion Coaching Leads.

The Leads will be given up to three days of additional training from Kate Cairns Associates [KCA] on: Emotion Coaching; use of KCA’s online platform KCA Connected; problem solving, supervision and reflective practice skills; and data collection. The team will also be supported by the LAC/PDG Training Co-ordinator.

The Leads will be asked to facilitate monthly cluster meetings with their schools, giving support in embedding Emotion Coaching in school. The Leads will also be expected to collect data and feedback to inform future planning models. The initial commitment will run from Sept 2017 to March 2018. Supply costs will be covered by ERW.

Potential Leads will have already completed Emotion Coaching training and will have made significant steps to embed the practice in their school.

Expressions of interest should be made via email to sara.walters@erw.org.uk detailing the above, as well as your commitment to the attachment aware school model and what you can bring to the role.

The deadline for expressions of interest is Wednesday 20th Sept 2017. The first training date is Friday 6th October in Carmarthen.
