Certificate in Professional Coach-mentoring
How is it different from the Certificate in Coach-mentoring?
This is not a starting point, this is about developing a candidate’s professional practice, not learning how to coach. There are 8 hours of coaching and feedback from their own Coach-mentor Supervisor, but there are not any compulsory sessions or feedback from their own coachees. We focus on three areas of CPD to develop coach-mentoring practice and for each there is a one day CPD workshop, as we see these as important practice and networking opportunities.
What does the 75 hours of learning consist of?
Use of our online learning portal and access to our learning resources, “listen anytime” webinars, three days of CPD workshops and reading three books, each related to the areas covered in the workshop, creating development plans, capturing learning in writing logs and reflective summaries and eight hours one to one telephone coaching and feedback from a CMS. At the end of the programme, candidates have an endorsement interview with their CMS, details of which are added to their portfolio which is then submitted for final assessment.
What are the three specialist areas?
The three areas for CPD are outlined below. The order in which these are completed can vary dependant on when the candidate starts and when the workshops are running:-
- Managing Coaching and Mentoring
- Psychological Insights
- Systemic Approaches in Coaching and Mentoring
