On this part-time Coaching course you will integrate your prior work and life experiences with the theoretical concepts underpinning coaching practice. You will expand your knowledge and understanding of theories and then relate that understanding to the skills and approaches necessary to develop professionally as a coach. This will help you to research and inform your models and modes of coaching practice. To be an effective coach we believe it is important to attend to your personal and emotional development as a coach.

We allow you to explore and expand your coaching repertoire, with structured reflective practice, tutor input, coaching practice as coach and coachee and coach-supervisor support.
