This qualification is ideal for managers and those with significant responsibility for effective coaching and mentoring as part of their daily role. HR and Learning & Development professionals may wish to take this course to gain a recognised qualification to enhance and accredit their experience. The course is also ideal for those looking to retrain into a development role or start a new career as a freelance coach or mentor.
Whilst studying this qualification, you will learn about the theories underpinning coaching and mentoring. You will learn to plan, prepare and deliver a coaching or mentoring programme to support individuals over 18 hours and you will holistically review your ability to perform effectively as a coach or mentor within an organisational context.
You can expect to be challenged, have some fun, learn a lot and engage in thought-provoking learning opportunities! The course involves interactive training workshops (to include peer to peer coaching), group and individual supervision sessions, supplemented with e-learning materials to support further learning. Your competence will be assessed by a range of methods including supervisions, project work and written assignments.
If coaching and mentoring is part of your current job role, this course can be taken as part of a government funded Professional Coaching Apprenticeship.
Whilst there are no specific formal entry requirements, we ask that applicants consider how they will meet and undertake the required practical coaching and mentoring hours as part of the qualification. As this is a level 5 course, an aptitude for academic writing is required.
