The DfE Leadership Coaching Pledge – Women in Leadership

Women in Leadership

Do you want to support women leading in education? The DfE coaching pledge invites leaders to make a voluntary pledge to coach aspiring female leaders.

Pledge to coach:

This is a great opportunity to potentially transform the leadership journey of women teachers by helping to increase confidence, unlock potential and build resilience. It is also an opportunity to develop and maintain your own coaching skills.

“Coaching has had a huge impact on my leadership style. I believe everyone has the ability to improve their own performance through guided support. Coaching is an effective method to provide leaders in education with the chance to explore their areas of concern and leadership development in a safe space.”


“I have been applying for leadership positions for over two years and not getting anywhere until I started working with my coach. Since taking part in coaching I have already had two interviews and hope to move to a permanent position this academic year. This is mainly thanks to the improvements I have made to my application letter writing, which is all down to the coaching.
