Training Syllabus

No matter how much experience we have, we can all benefit from the opportunity to consider and review how we currently coach and update our knowledge and skills. This programme will give you a vast amount of practical coaching experience and feedback both from clients and observers. It will also offer you the opportunity to learn new tools and techniques to make your coaching focused, supportive, dynamic, and challenging and above all outcome orientated.

In addition to coaching during the three-day modules, you will also have the opportunity to experience how to sustain a coaching relationship over time – from both perspectives. Throughout the programme you will have your own coach in-between the modules. You will also be a coach to a course participant in-between the modules.

The majority of practicing coaches attend some form of supervision. Supervision is an opportunity to review the work you are doing with specific clients and gain support, challenge and ideas. It is a supportive environment where you can discuss your areas for development and get feedback.
