Communication is a core skill for any teacher. It is often assumed teachers have an inherent ability – indeed mastery – in this area. From newly qualified teachers to deputies and heads we help our teaching clients thrive under the most challenging circumstance; because that’s school life. Our training is designed to hold audiences both within the classroom and beyond. This has included planning and running meetings, handling difficult parents, preparing for and running an interview. Laughton Scott is expertly placed to coach school staff with both first-hand experience in the classroom, as well as extensive experience coaching school educators at all levels.
No matter what their future, communications skills serve a young person for life. More than ever, strong interpersonal skills are needed to navigate careers, social and business relationships. Vital face-to-face skills are diminishing making it harder for many young people to launch and progress their careers. The ability to listen, speak confidently and purposefully, and work well with others are qualities that help all individuals in the workplace and prized in business. However, as communications technology and social media become more dominant face-to-face communication skills among the young are suffering. These valuable interpersonal skills can be taught, and while primary communication skills are essential, excellent skills make you stand out.
