Course description

Practitioner Diploma in Executive Coaching

7-day professional training programme

The Practitioner Diploma is held over a series of 3 two-day sessions, run one month apart, and includes an additional assessment day.

The Practitioner Diploma enables you to become a qualified coach. It explores coaching’s key principles, develops your unique personal style and equips you with a toolbox of skills indispensable for coaching in a corporate environment. It’s rigorously designed to meet the core competencies for accreditation/credentialing with three of the top coaching bodies, the International Coaching Federation (ICF), European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC) and the Association for Coaching (AC).

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course is appropriate for people who have an understanding of coaching.

Participants typically include experienced managers, trainers, consultants and people already in a coaching role and wanting to develop their skills or to become a qualified coach.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

If you would like to become an accredited coach there are two components that require your consideration.

The first is that you will need to do a programme that is accredited.

This programme has been accreditedby the main internationally recognised coaching bodies – more than any other UK provider in our sphere – the International Coaching Federation (ICF), European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC) and the Association of Coaching (AC).

We can therefore offer you professional and academic credentials that will be recognised internationally.

The second thing to consider isyour own individual accreditation. Each professional body has similar but different requirements for individual coach accreditation at different levels. Completion of this programme will provide you with the following:

ICF (International Coach Federation)

Represents 60 Accredited Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH). The ICF requires 60 Coach Specific Training Hours when applying through the ACSTH path for individual coach accreditation for ACC (Associate Certified Coach).
