  • 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 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, between 5.00 pm and 6.30 pm unless otherwise stated on the programme. We have typically held the sessions in the Clerici Building at the Headington Campus. However, due to the ongoing public health concerns arising from Covid-19 we are uncertain whether we will be able to hold face to face sessions with refreshments. In the event that we are not able to meet physically we will deliver the OBCAMS sessions via Zoom.

    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.
