To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Estonia and the 30th anniversary of the Estonian Business School, the EBS Executive Education and NGO School For New Teachers are proud to launch a coaching programme for Estonian school leaders.
Peep Aaviksoo, head of EBS Executive Education said that regular meetings with school leaders whose daily work shapes the future of Estonia will be held in 2018 in the form of coaching sessions. “The coaching sessions are to support school leaders’ personal and professional development. The participants will include 12 executive management coaches as well as school leaders from Tallinn and Tartu, but also from small settlements, for instance, Väätsa and Pisisaare, who have a direct impact on the development of local communities,” Aaviksoo noted.
“The importance of school leaders in the development of our society cannot be overestimated,” said Triin Noorkõiv, the leader of “School for New Teachers”. “It is them who shape the everyday learning environment in schools of Estonia, assuming responsibility for the development of teachers and students alike. We are really glad that this gift of ours will become a contribution to Estonia’s future and provide school leaders as such with personal development space while its extent will allow true changes to be initiated,” Noorkõiv added.
This unique programme supports 12 visionary school leaders who deeply care about the development of their students and their teachers, and who are committed to their own development as leaders and change agents.
The programme starts with the AoEC Coaching Skills Certificate programme and continues with one-on-one coaching sessions through the year 2018. The training is delivered by the AoEC Estonia faculty - Peep Aaviksoo and Riina Varts. One-on-one coaching sessions will be hosted by the experienced business leaders and the alumni of Practitioner Diploma in Executive Coaching programme.
