Informed by Knight’s (2007) partnership coaching principles, this paper reports on a study on teacher coaching programme in Malaysia, particularly involving teacher coaches, known as School Improvement Specialist Coaches Plus (SISC+).

Data were drawn from observations and interviews conducted with the SISC+ and the coached teachers. The data were analysed thematically.
