Certificate in Professional Coaching (Blended)


The Certificate in Professional Coaching is a 16-week programme. There are 6 face-to-face days of training, 6 Virtual Forums delivered online via webinar together with coaching practice sessions and self-study. Each student is also paired with a mentor spread throughout the course, and beyond, to support your development as a coach.

Our training, both in person and online, is delivered as a mix of facilitation, lectures, demonstrations, pair work and feedback, and practice coaching sessions. We place great emphasis on practicing the skills that are taught in each session so the facilitator can give feedback and assistance in a safe environment.
