Our programmes are delivered by experienced academics and practitioners, who combine cutting-edge thinking with a practical, real-world focus, ensuring our programmes meet professional and industry needs.
Our Certificate in Effective Coaching and Mentoring programme aims to give you the skills and experience to develop your coaching/mentoring skills by practically completing coaching/mentoring sessions and critically reviewing these.
Delivered fully online, this route gives you the flexibility to study form any location.
Firmly rooted in academic ideas and research, the team of tutors (all practising coaches and mentors) will navigate participants through the ways in which coaching can use a range of interventions which support and embellish practice, theory and coach/coachee behaviours.
The course will help the candidates move away from formulaic questions to an engagement of managers in complex ways of thinking. Practice will be a key part of class and include the use live examples of coaching, working in coaching triads and giving and receiving feedback.
The cohorts and tutors will work together to learn and reflect upon well-researched approaches and will introduce the coaching techniques and the use of creative questions and ideas for making coaching and mentoring dynamic and will help participants move toward coaching and mentoring mastery.
