BETH HIGHAM -EDWARDS
Coaching & mentoring
Beth holds a foundation level qualification in coaching accredited by the European Mentoring and Coaching Council. She is currently working towards a practitioner level qualification at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
Beth mentors for: UK Music Masters (where she mentors teachers training on their PGCEI course, and trains and provides supervision to the mentoring team), Britten Pears Arts (where she coaches the Aldeburgh Young Musicians and acts as an Ambassador for the scheme), and for Music Mark. She also coaches privately. Beth uses a coaching approach to her mentoring and consultation work. Beth has experience leading peer coaching sessions and has delivered a training/sharing session in coaching for the charity Creative Futures, and for UK Music Masters. She has also conducted some consultancy work, most notably with the Multi-Story Orchestra.
Beth's ambition is to link her coaching work with her gender equality work, and this is a work in progress.
