  • Welcome to Oxford Brookes Coaching and Mentoring Society (OBCaMS)

    The aim of the Oxford Brookes University Coaching and Mentoring Society (OBCaMS) is to bring together researchers and practitioners of coaching and mentoring in order to explore evidence based practice and areas of interest to the field.

    OBCaMS meets monthly throughout the academic year. It provides collaboration and networking opportunities for academics and professionals from a wide spectrum of coaching and mentoring interest. We introduce a range of coaching and mentoring topics in an informal setting and stimulate lively discussions and debates. The society has approximately 80 members, comprising academics, students and practitioners from across the region.

    The society meets monthly on Friday evenings, usually in the Clerici Building at the Headington Campus, between 4.45 pm and 6.30 pm unless otherwise stated on the programme. The evening begins with refreshments and a talk or discussion with guest speaker(s) and concludes with opportunities for networking. Click here for directions and map.

    Joining OBCaMS

    Membership of the Society is available to anyone interested in their own professional development as a coach or mentor (practitioners, students, academics etc). Annual membership costs just £30, which covers the cost of refreshments at meetings. The membership runs from September to August. The Society sends out mailings to its members to advise them of forthcoming events, usually by email.
