The best way to ensure that coaches are effective is to give them a coach of their own.
That's what we do in the Coach PD Project. Each member of the Project is assigned to a small group that is facilitated by a master coach.At Gerety Education Team, we firmly believe that coaching is the best way to transform classrooms - but that's only true if the coach is effective.
We are looking for an experienced coach to join our team of master coaches.

At least three years of coaching experience
