Workshop Leader

  • Ron Piper
    Ron Piper, formerly Assistant Principal at The Ridgeway School and now PGCE Course Leader for the Swindon SCITT. Ron holds ICF recognised coaching qualifications and is also an NLP Master Practitioner and Trainer. Ron's current training focuses on exploring the commonalities that exist between outstanding teaching, coaching and self-leadership and considers questions such as Do Outstanding teachers coach rather than teach? What’s similar about coaching and leadership thinking? and What has to happen to create a coaching culture for staff and students? Ron is especially interested in how planning and designing lessons around coaching presuppositions has positive impact on student outcomes. In short, Ron is keen to help teachers to be coaches in their classrooms and help them to understand that Outstanding is a way of thinking rather than doing.
