To support the development of versatile educators who can perform the role of Teacher-Coach-Mentor, CoLEAD offers coaching and mentoring programmes for SIT academic staff.

Research shows that coaching and mentoring has a positive impact on student learning outcomes and faculty development. Through the adoption of coaching and mentoring, SIT faculty and academic staff can engage students on a deeper level, enabling students to develop confidence and self-efficacy, and to achieve their fullest potential.
