In response to feedback from students on our MA in
Coaching, we have designed an optional, introductory, pre-entry 1-day course to
build up initial knowledge of coaching.
The workshop is open to anyone
looking to increase their understanding of coaching and mentoring and is
excellent preparation for those considering undertaking a course of study
leading to an academic
qualification such as the MA in Coaching and Mentoring Practice
- The purpose of the course is to understand basic
coaching skills and practice, using a mix of teaching and practical activities.
It will introduce the use of a formal Coaching Model, how to become a coach
(and/or mentor) and examining how to coach in a range of contexts, from
executive level through to life coaching across a number of disciplines.
course will be highly practical and interactive with participants encouraged to
test the ideas in a safe and confidential environment. The focus will be on
practice and how to apply the approaches to develop their personal coaching
style. Participants will be encouraged to discuss the material and reflect on
how they can apply the ideas to their chosen context.
- The topics covered during the course will
include the following.
- Definitions of coaching and the key process
- Models and techniques relevant to coaching and
how to apply them
- Core skills and competencies of coaching
By the end of the course,
participants will be able to understand how to:
- Set up and maintain a coaching relationship in
line with professional standards

guidelines for coaching
- Apply at least one coaching model and structure
appropriate developmental interventions
