Transforming the nation's educational systems requires a big task that is an
intervention to the education system itself Malaysia Education Blueprint (2013-
2025) was reformed to empower and bring national education up to the international
level. One of the initiatives is the district transformation program (DTP) in which
School Improvement Specialist Coaches (SISC+) was appointed and had been
positioned full-time at District Education Offices (PPD) to coach and mentor the
teachers in their districts. The aim of this study was to elucidate the coaching and
mentoring that directly link instructional coaching with improved teacher
performance or student achievement in Rembau, Jempol Jelebu and Kuala Pilah
districts in Negeri Sembilan since coaching and mentoring is a new approach in
Malaysian education system. It is a mixed method approach while the selected
design is a case study and roped in three SISC+ and 3 of their coaches for interview

analysed and guided by Braun and Clarke's (2006) six-step thematic analysis with
the help of ATLAS. ti and SPSS is also employed for the quantitative method. For
the first research question, it is found that the roles and responsibilities of SISC+ are

teaching and learning knowledge to the teacher through professional development
and professional learning community. The study revealed that, their successes were
measured through being accepted by their coachees in improving both the lesson
quality and knowledge growth while working with adult learners with different
attitude is one of their toughest challenges besides having conflicting roles. As for
the influence of SISC+, the findings revealed that the SISC+ has been successful in
influencing the coachees to transform in the improvement of lesson quality. Based
on the results, there were implications on the enactment of policies, conceptual
development and practical implementation to the stakeholders and the SISC+. This
study also has paved the ways for more related research in the future. It was
concluded that the initiative of the Ministry to accelerate the transformation of
education through positioning the SISC+ in PPD is a good effort however these
SISC+ must be trained to be competent, knowledgeable and skillful in the areas of
pedagogies, curriculum, and assessments. On the whole understanding the roles of a
coach at the educational setting are crucial at all level then only these SISC+ can
perform their duty well.
