This fall, Virginia Cross-Sector Professional Development is coordinating three Practice-Based Coaching (PBC) Training Institutes. Practice-Based Coaching is an evidence-based cyclical process for supporting practitioners’ use of effective practices that lead to positive outcomes for children and/or families. The Institutes are open to technical assistance and supervisory professionals who support early childhood educators through coaching.

The interactive two-day trainings consist of presentations, large group discussion, small group work, and practicing components of the PBC cycle.  Topics include:

  • an overview of the PBC model
  • strategies for developing collaborative coaching partnerships
  • developing needs assessments, shared goals and action plans
  • focused observations
  • providing reflection and feedback
