How do you choose the right course?
There are many variables but broadly speaking, you should ask yourself a few clarifying questions:
1) What is the purpose of you gaining a qualification/doing more training?
2) Who do you want to be coaching/mentoring at the end of the qualification?
3) What skills do you need to be effective in that role?
4) How much time can you commit and what budget do you have?
If you answered “I want to be a professional coach who works at a senior levels supporting diverse development needs and I am able to allocate sufficient resources to achieve this” then we would recommend a Practitioner level EQA qualification like our Diploma in Professional Coach-mentoring.
Conversely, if you answered “I want to develop some core coaching skills so I can coach my direct reports to improve their performance as part of my existing role” then we would recommend a Foundation level EQA qualification like our Certificate in Coach-mentoring.
Given that each individual is unique, we would recommend arranging a consultation with our Chief Executive Ed Parsloe ([email protected]) to discuss your needs in more detail. He can discuss the best options for you and talk to you more generally about our approach.
