Exploring the current thinking on pedagogy, Generation Z and processes of talent identification and development in the worlds of Southampton FC, the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, and Millfield School.

The Leaders Performance Podcast is brought to you by our Main Partners

“The tech environment and our understanding about learning and development has changed, but I don’t think that changes the reality of what we are doing to support how people may learn just yet.”

By John Portch

These are the words of Dr Scott Drawer, the Director of Sport at Millfield School in Somerset.

Dr Drawer is just one of the voices that has stood out in recent months in the Leaders Performance Institute’s efforts to explore the topic of coaching & development.

In this latest edition of the podcast, which is brought to you today by our Main Partners Keiser, we invite some of our most esteemed contributors to return and offer further reflections on their experiences.

Coming up today you will hear from:

  • Dr Edd Vahid, the Academy Manager at Southampton FC, discussing the identification and development of youthful potential [from 2:20];
  • Lucy Skilbeck, the Director of Actor Train at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, who explores the Academy’s curriculum and pedagogy [from 12:00];
  • Dr Scott Drawer, the Director of Sport at Millfield School, explaining why he feels the fundamentals of the teacher-coach relationship have not shifted [from 21:30].
