Pivot Coaching Services

We provide schools with a range of coaching services to get the most out of using Pivot tools and are bespoke and contextualised to school's priorities, budget and strategic goals.


A critical component of any school improvement plan or strategy is the data that provides evidence of key initiatives that impact student wellbeing and learning. 


For schools working with Pivot, student voice is added to the mix of insights they need to make key decisions regarding their teaching, learning and wellbeing programs. 


Student feedback data leads to the logical questions: how do we use this, what’s next, and how does this feedback align to our existing priorities and programs. 


Coaching calls with an education expert provide a valuable opportunity to unpack the student feedback data, identify key trends and plan actionable next steps. 


Pivot Coach Adam says:

“Schools approach coaching calls with a range of experiences and contextual differences. Some schools have recently partnered with Pivot and are eager to see what the data tells them. Others are hoping they can get ‘hard data’ for something they’ve suspected for a while.”
