National Board: Coaching for Candidate Success

National Board: Coaching for Candidate Success

Are you a National Board Certified Teacher looking for ways to support others pursuing Board certification?

This four-day training will help you learn the skills to coach candidates through the National Board Certification process. After completing Coaching for Candidate Success, you will be eligible to apply to the various paid National Board coaching opportunities through the Arizona K12 Center.  

Through this series, participants will learn how to produce independent thinkers who are more apt to solve problems and work through complex intellectual tasks in an efficient and productive way. In the first two days, participants will do a deep dive into coaching skills and the ethics around coaching National Board candidates. Then, participants will have the opportunity to apply these skills in their context before gathering again in the fall and winter to reflect on what we practiced and identify next steps for continuous improvement.

Participants will learn to:

  • Actively listen to candidates
  • Interpret verbal and non-verbal cues
  • Diagnose needs of candidates
  • Build rapport and develop trust with candidates
  • Use skills of mediation to help coaches develop autonomy and self-reliance

Additional Information

Participants will receive breakfast and lunch for Days 1 and 2. Breakfast will be provided for Days 3 and 4. Participants will receive the Arizona K12 Center National Board Coaching materials and access to digital versions to help support candidates.
