About the Course

This course, usually spread across three months, is aimed at and tailored to staff who work as advisors, teachers and mentors.

Led by one of their experienced coaching associates, and within a supportive peer group, the course will help you to integrate coaching skills into your work and to develop new ways of working with your clients, colleagues and students.

You will develop the essential skills, techniques and understanding to become a proficient coach. You will be introduced to a variety of tools which can enhance the way you work with colleagues, clients and students to bridge the gap between potential and performance.

Upon successful completion, participants have the option to receive the Guildhall Certificate in Coaching & Mentoring, accredited by the EMCC (European Mentoring and Coaching Council) at Foundation Level*. Alternatively, participants will receive a certificate of attendance if they do not wish to complete the Learning Log.

The course consists of six half-day seminar sessions (organised as 4 half day sessions, a gap period of normally three months before sessions 5 & 6) during which participants will work on a variety of real-life problems, receiving skilled feedback to develop your work as a coach. All participants will be offered a 1-1 session with one of their experienced coaches as part of the course.

Participant requirements

All participants will be encouraged to be open and to engage in self-reflection as part of the work. A willingness to embrace change and work authentically and generously with their peers and clients is also essential to successful coaching & mentoring.

What participants say

“This course has full equipped me with the skills to coach and mentor others seeking to bring about change. I felt nurtured and supported by the tutors and learned from their wealth of experience. I also learned a lot from my peers in the class as we all brought different experiences and skills to our work together and we were open and honest with our feedback. A hugely enjoyable, challenging and inspiring experience. Thank you!”

“I think the world would be a better and more reasonable place if more people learnt about coaching, the power of listening and how to give feedback.”
