Why us?

If you’re going to choose to study with us, we need to provide a compelling argument.

The OCM (Oxford Coaching and Mentoring) have been market leaders in the coaching and mentoring qualifications and training market since we began in 1998, having trained almost 13,000 to date. As co-founders of the European Mentoring & Coaching Council (EMCC), we helped created the professional standards and codes of ethics of the EMCC that are now used by other organisations including the ILM. We have been the only provider to partner with the CIPD to deliver their coaching and mentoring qualifications.

We literally helped write the book on accrediting and assessing professional coaches, mentors and supervisors.

We have expertise in all facets of coaching, mentoring and supervision with qualifications, CPD and training offerings to match. You won't need to find another coaching provider as we offer everything you might need. Our internal team are all expert and accredited with a proven track record in supporting diverse groups to develop coaching, mentoring and supervision skills to a high standard. We've extensive experience in  delivering high quality remote learning experiences that are tailored to your development needs. We have invested in engaging online content and quality digital learning platforms to support you virtually as you progress through our courses.

Anyone can deliver a coaching course, very few can do it well.

We take a personalised approach to learning, creating unique, flexible learning experiences with high levels of individual support to complement live group sessions. You can choose what you study and when you study it so the course flexes around you, not the other way around. Unlike many coaching and mentoring organisations, we do not advocate any one theoretical coaching model. Instead, we support and encourage our coaches to use a wide range of approaches.

Our approach is holistic and we call it ‘Situational Coach-Mentoring’ - watch our short video to find out more.

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.
