With Google’s tailored curriculum and research-based 5-step coaching model, coaches are equipped with coaching strategies, guidance, and a coaching framework to be an effective coach.

Coaches and admins can complete the access to the curriculum for free or work with the LTC, a Google-recommended coaching partner that provides paid mentorship services for coaches and their administrators to deepen program impact. The LTC’s Google Certified Coach Mentor Program provides scaffolded support and engaging learning opportunities to help instructional coaches hone their practice and work even more effectively with educators.
