Coaching for High-Performance CPD

The CPD is designed to support implement the Mindset Masterclasses for students and apprentices, drawing  on approaches and methods used by coaches and educators across high performance environments, and offers an opportunity to build on existing teaching skills whilst providing a range of new ideas, exercises, and tools to develop enhanced practices using a set of mental skills and behaviours; Psychological Characteristics of Developing Excellence (PCDE). The CPD includes activities, videos, animations and downloadable resources to support educators.

The programme consists of nine modules, each taking approx. 15 minutes each, totalling 3 hours. We encourage the CPD to be completed in sequential order to fully benefit from the learning and can be revisited to reinforce your practise or assist with problem solving.

I’m looking to improve my own skills, as well as my students’ skills. So, it’s about improving myself before I can improve them.
