COACHING&

MENTORING

Innovative technics for teachers, mentors and educators to fight drop up and motivate youth

Description and main aims

Draft proposed program

A teacher can be many figures inside one, we all know that today is required to be multi-sectorial, transversal and also super powerful. But at the base the vocation to be teacher coincides with the vocation to be mentor. What is the different is to be "professional mentor" or just a person taking a specific care to some difficult situation of some students and overcoming the border of "just teaching at school". 
On the other hand, Coaching is a similar but at the same time, a different approach 
Nowadays being a teacher doesn’t only mean to teach but it also means to help, to be an active listener and to be a guide for students and colleagues. And that’s the reason why it is very important to be prepared to face any kind of situation that can arise in school environments. Schools are the mirror of society, sometimes of the small and the big context where the school is based, sometimes of the wider framework. 
Most of the time a teacher replaces the figure of a coach or has to be more mentor then an expert in the subject, they enter in students’ lives and constitute the biggest support substituting families. 
This course has the purpose to give the basic tools to help teachers to understand better their role - apart from being subject teachers - and gain key competences to play a more active role in helping and motivate students. 
The course starts making clear what the differences are  between these two figures (the coach and the mentor) and also to understand which one can better fits a teacher. A coach can help a student to set goals, and give them the tools to achieve them only by using their own capabilities. A mentor is also a guide or a model that can last for a longer time. 
This course helps you find ways to hand the issues back to the person and encourage them find the solutions for themselves. We aren’t aiming to teach you how to become a fully accredited coach or mentor, we are aiming to provide you with some highly effective coaching skills you will be able to put into practice in your life and daily work. It's very important to contextualise always and each person can be a different kind of mentor depending on each specific situation. 
In some contexts coaching and mentoring are used almost as interchangeable terms. Without doubt they are both valuable processes. It is true that the boundary between them is somewhat permeable and that often the same individuals in schools carry out or participate in both processes.
The aim of this course is to recognise the differences between these two learning interventions that most of the time are confused, and  to use one or the other depending on the person we want to help. Learning how to take care, guide and how to build a relationship of trust. 
Pushing or pulling the other person towards their goals are different ways to help them to find their own solutions. Active listening and asking questions is at the base of these two learning interventions, that why the teacher will get to know how to ask questions and  the grow model  to enhance this behaviour.
We aren’t aiming to teach you how to become a fully accredited coach or mentor, we are aiming to provide you with some highly effective skills you will be able to put into practice in your life and daily work.
