At present, coaching is understood as a modern concept of principles and practices that have been worked on for centuries. Coaching is a form of development in which an experienced person, also called a coach, supports the learner or client in achieving specific personal or professional goals by providing training. A student is sometimes referred to as a coach. Coaching can be used in both the work, school and personal spheres. The paper deals with the analysis of the introduction of a coaching approach to education. The theoretical part of the thesis describes and explains the areas of coaching, the principles of coaching. This section describes individual coaching methods in more detail. The practical part deals with the analysis of the current state of interest in the coaching approach among students, in which a questionnaire survey was conducted. Subsequently, a questionnaire was created, which was sent to selected respondents (university students with a focus on the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering). The questionnaire consisted of fifteen selected questions, which focused on the area of knowledge of coaching and interest in introducing a coaching approach to education. Answers were subsequently analyzed, and the individual conceptual coaching methods were implemented in the teaching process. The final part contains the evaluation and benefits of coaching methods in education.
