The Practice-Based Coaching Training Institute (PBCTI) is an intensive 2-day event intended for coaches. During the PBCTI, coaches will learn how to use Practice-Based Coaching to support staff’s use of high-quality teaching and home-visiting practices. The PBCTI will be provided by Early Childhood Consultant, Rhodanne Schiller, and hosted by the Iowa Head Start Association.


Coaches will be able to: 

• Identify the key components of PBC.
• Describe the characteristics of collaborative partnerships.
• Work with staff to create shared goals and develop action plans for achieving those goals.
• Conduct focused observations based on an action plan.
• Use reflection and feedback to support staff’s implementation of the identified goals.
• Meet the new Head Start Program Performance Standard for implementing a research-based, 
coordinated coaching strategy by a qualified coach.


The PBCTI is designed for staff who provide coaching. These coaches may be supporting classroom teachers, home visitors, family child care providers, or others who work directly with children or families.
