This publication consists of chapters, each by a different expert author, which explore the application of established coaching models and methodologies to vocational learning. The contributions draw on evidence from existing coaching provision within the further education (FE) sector. They also look at how coaching encourages performance improvements in various fields where it is particularly strongly established, such as music, sports, public speaking, and leadership and management, and how these approaches might be transferred to other vocational education contexts. The publication also contains interviews with coaches, and examples of practical ways in which coaching can be put into practice.

In this chapter (chapter 3), we take a closer look at coaching as part of a coherent set of pedagogical approaches. What are the additional benefits of incorporating coaching into a trainer’s or manager’s approach to developing skills, and how does coaching relate to other teaching approaches?
