Coaching Skills Certificate

This Certificate is the ideal way for anyone looking to take their interpersonal skills to the next level, as well as those considering integrating coaching into their work or as a career.

As an experiential course, it will put you in the shoes of both the coach and the coachee, so you can understand the real power of coaching and its everyday applicability first-hand.

Testimonials

“Great courses to get an insight and overview of coaching. It equips you with real skills that are immediately applicable.”

“A great introduction to coaching, packed full of opportunity to practice your skills in a safe and encouraging environment”

“Comprehensive and enlightening and a very enjoyable course”

“I attended the course through my workplace, and was admittedly unsure what to expect. Upon arriving we were greeted warmly by the two tutors & this continued throughout the two days. The course was informative, had a high level of interaction & lots of coaching practice, and I came away feeling enthused & knowing far more about coaching than I had anticipated. I would highly recommend the course to others”
