Trusted experts with proven track record

  • We have 2500+ successful graduates from this course alone
  • We co-founded the EMCC and helped create professional standards

I loved the flexibility of the program and especially that there was a lot of freedom to explore through our evidence pieces as well as reflections, this kept me engaged and excited to go through the modules. Additionally I think the facilitated webinars were very well executed and engaging. I felt connected to the rest of the cohort through these.

What will you learn?

As standard, we teach you not just the practical side of coach mentoring , but also the critical elements such as identifying a personal style of reflective practice, contracting in client relationships, working safely and ethically, handling dependency, working with a range of models and approaches including our own ELECTRIC, to enable you to effectively deliver different types of  coaching and mentoring in different contexts like life, career, skills/performance, change and transition.

Most importantly, through unrivalled levels of 121 coaching, we teach you how to develop your own signature style, how to take charge of your own development and how to use supervision for your professional practice beyond the Diploma.
