How to apply the Hawkins’ Five Disciplines Model – you will work with a real-life client case study as part of the programme in order to gain experience of how this coaching model is applied in a real world client setting with support and supervision from both your fellow course participants and an experienced faculty team.

How you learn

The programme runs over the course of a year and is provided through a blend of both virtual and in-person modules, held in London.

Please note the Systemic Team Coaching® Certificate and attendance on one of our Action Learning/Supervision Groups help you to prepare for the Diploma programme and form part of the entry requirements.

You will explore and discuss the practice of systemic team coaching and the research and theory which underpins it.

You will practise key skills and supervision through team coaching with your peers, by working with the dynamics of the learning community, by using the Team Connect 360 diagnostic tool and by arranging a team coaching case study with a client.

The programme uses its large group experience with observations and comments from the faculty team who will openly discuss the process.

Personal development comes through being a participant on the programme and examining the process of being in it, while going through it and from the final assessment.

You will learn from individual tutorials and a final assessment viva.

Your learning experience

Learning is shared through faculty-led sessions and the whole learning group which is facilitated by the faculty.

You will work with your external client team between and during models and receive supervision from the faculty.

Practitioner groups of four to six will work together on their client teams and provide supervision for each other. This will also be facilitated by a faculty member in support of the practitioner team’s learning.
