The AISACT Literacy and Numeracy Coaching Academy (LNCA)
Edited on December 05, 2018
Commencing in 2015, the AISACT Literacy and Numeracy Academy (LNCA) has provided a range of opportunities for AISACT Member schools to embed coaching as an approach to professional learning and instructional change. In 2018 STEM was added to the program.
In 2018 the program enabled schools to expand upon a process for school instructional development that can be utilised to address identified school needs. Through the embedding of the coaching process, and the collection of instructional data, schools further developed the capacity to measure improvements in current instructional focus areas, while identifying future needs of students and teachers.
What was involved?
- Schools nominated a school coach/es to continue to build and expand a sustainable coaching approach, in collaboration with school leadership, to support the instructional or pedagogical change that is the school focus.
- Schools identified an instructional literacy, numeracy or STEM focus for the coaching process that was appropriate for their context.
- Coaches supported teachers to build their capacity to implement the selected instructional focus through the use of collaborative and reflective coaching approaches. Coaches evidenced and informed their work through data collection and planned strategically with leaders and teachers to deepen and sustain the coaching process.
- Coaches were supported to develop the skills and strategies required for their coaching roles through their participation in professional learning and with support from an AISACT coaching mentor.
