How is the course structured?

The course is offered as either face to face training or on-line.  Face to face training is two full days and on line sessions are delivered via zoom with your group and trainer in real time.  The training is a mix of presentation and activity based and will also look at how to evidence your learning for assessment.  You will receive a workbook to accompany the training and be provided with access to a bank of resources.  Your named assessor will support you throughout, helping you to plan your work and providing constructive feedback.

Who is this course primarily for?

  • Career Coaches who focus on the individual’s career concerns, with the coach eliciting and using feedback on the individual’s capabilities as part of a discussion of career options.

  • Skills coaches who are generally focused on achieving a number of skill development objectives that are linked to the needs of the organisation.

  • Business coaches who support individuals or group in an organisational context.
  • Executive coaches: who provide one to one performance coaching to improve individual and organisational performance

How is my work assessed?
