Why integrate coaching in the implementation of the new CBC system?

Coaching is a profession, philosophy and a practice: As a profession, it’s been in existence for 25 years with CDI-Africa Coaching Group being one of the 1st pioneers in advancing coaching in Africa. As a philosophy, it is based on the mindset that people are knowledgeable, resourceful and have unlimited potential that needs unlocking.
At the heart of the coaching philosophy are the principles of communication, collaboration, creativity and creating awareness.  These very principles are the core outcomes that CBC system seeks to achieve.  Embedding coaching as an approach to learner instruction, the teachers, in collaboration with the parents will be able to maximize the value they derive from the CBC system, and with so much fun, ease, impact and sustainability. It will essentially become the way of life and no longer just a compliance to the Ministry of Education requirements.
 The set of coaching principles we bring to the schools becomes the toolbox with each of the 8 principles being a special tool for unlocking and maximizing learners’ potential.
