Level 3 Coaching Qualifications in Coaching:                       
Module 1: Understanding Good Practice in Workplace Coaching 23 & 24 November
Undertaking Coaching in the Workplace

Award: 6 hours

Certificate: 36 hours

Module 2: Reflecting on Workplace Coaching Skills 11 January 2018

Our Philosophy: We believe the skills and behaviours implicit in being a coach cannot be developed at a single event.  The opportunity to apply the skills in the real world – to review, learn and adapt – is essential to ensure successful knowledge transfer and skills that are sustained and fully embedded back in the workplace.  It is for this reason that our programmes emphasise the need for coaching practise and include a heavy focus on experiential learning and feedback; they are composed of the following events:

  • To prepare participants for the programme, clarify individual concerns and enable personal objectives to be set, each participant is briefed by one of the lead tutors, who remains their personal contact throughout the programme.
  • The ‘Understanding Good Practice in Workplace Coaching’ module covers the core coaching topics in a variety of learning styles, introduces key concepts and provides a forum for discussing best practice.  This module also introduces skills, techniques and models for application back in the workplace.
  • Coaching practice: throughout the programme, participants are expected to identify and formally coach a set number of coachees away from the workshops.  (6 hours for the Award, and 36 hours for the Certificate).
  • After the first workshop we encourage participants to form buddy relationships as this creates a working relationship where a colleague can share their coaching experiences, practice key coaching tools and problem solve.
  • The ‘Reflecting on workplace coaching skills’ module will give learners tools to analyse and improve their own performance as a coach, and participants are required to use a “Reflective Learning Log” to aid their learning.
  • Following the workshop element of the programme, each participants has an individual supervision session designed to help them embed their learning and their coaching experience, provide insight and guidance into the portfolio submission and to challenge and focus their ongoing development.

We offer 3 different development routes:

1: Skills Acquisition 2: Portfolio 3: Assignment
No Assessment.

For leaders who wish to benefit from the learning experience only.
