Nine managers from Doncaster College attended an award ceremony at the Hub campus recently to celebrate the successful conclusion of their coaching course.
They were presented with certificates and flowers by George Trow, Principal and Chief Executive of the College, at the Waterfront training restaurant, to celebrate their achieving the Institute of Leader and Management Level 5 coaching qualification and to formally recognise them as the College team of in-house coaches.
This special occasion was also marked by the attendance of Doncaster College Chair of the Corporation Board, Ruth Brook and Vice-Chair Robert Allen, as well as senior managers at the College, Catherine Parkinson, Ann Treacy and Pat Meadows. Also in attendance was Suzanna Prout and Louise Wembridge from the Yorkshire based company, Xenonex, who delivered the Institute of Leader and Management (ILM) Level 5 programme.
Catherine Parkinson, Deputy Principal Strategy and Resources at the College said, “The College has invested in the development of this team to benefit all staff as part of a package of sustainable support services. Together they have already coached a significant number of staff from across the College and will now go on to officially launch the College Coaching Service to all staff. This service will complement the existing suite of College support and development processes and services and run alongside the new talent management programme which will be launched shortly.”
Kathryn Brentnall, Director of Quality and Learning Resources at the College,
was one of the managers who completed the course over a 10 month period and had to attend taught sessions, undertake a minimum of 12 hours coaching and submit written assignments plus do research. She said,
“Operating in an organisation that has a coaching culture is something that I see will be fundamental to the way we improve the performance of the staff and the College, and it was recognised as a strength at the Ofsted visit. By engaging in a coaching conversation the coach supports the coachee to find the answers and in that way options and actions generated sit with the coachee and therefore has the impact where it most matters.”
All were treated to a commemorative lunch at the Waterfront restaurant and food was provided by VRQ Level 1 student chefs and served by front of house NVQ Level 2 and 3 and VRQ Level 2 students.
