Step 2: Complete the curriculum and pass the skills Assessment
Complete the coaching curriculum. It is systematic and follows the challenge-based coaching model, and includes innovative ideas and links to fantastic resources.
To prove your knowledge, you need to complete the Coach Skills Assessment. The test is free and includes 47 MCQs. To pass the assessment, you have to answer at least 80% of the questions correctly. It will take approximately 45 minutes.
Tip: Don't forget to keep a screenshot of the result, as you will submit it with the application later on.
Step 3: Practical work and data collection
After you have passed the exam, it's time to apply your skills and start working 1:1 with your selected coachees on the first coaching cycle.
Make sure to follow the 5-steps coaching model to keep all your work-related and organized.
Save all materials, data, and documents that showcase your coaching workflow and interactions, how you have measured impact, your coachees' feedback, and their bright spot stories when celebrating the teachers' wins on a GoogleDrive folder as you will also submit these artifacts with the application.
Step 4: It is time to apply!
You will submit a brief coaching portfolio (short video and three artifacts) that shows that you have successfully embraced the coaching model while working with coachees and a reference letter from an admin familiar with your work as a coach.
The video should be 3-5 minutes long (5 minutes max - don't exceed the limit) and enunciate that you have used the coaching model effectively and meaningfully with a specific coachee.
Don't include any private data (PII) in the video and the artifacts.
The artifacts files should not exceed 100MB.
Make the links viewable for anyone with the links. Try links out on an incognito window.
