What you will learn

The theoretical foundations and practice of Systemic Team Coaching ® – one of the longest running team coaching programmes available, you will master your understanding of the Systemic Team Coaching model. Based on Professor Peter Hawkins’ established and proven research, methodologies and training you will gain the skills, experience and knowledge to work as an AoEC qualified systemic team coach.

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.

About who you are as a team coach – you will develop your own signature presence as you craft your own model of systemic team coaching and supporting marketing statement.

How to work confidently when coaching client teams – you will gain confidence, presence, authority and resilience when contracting and working with teams at all levels.

How to use and apply the Team Connect 360 diagnostic tool in client work – you will be licensed to use the tool and gain experience of interpreting a TC360 report.

How you learn

The programme runs over 14 days during a 14-18 month period and comprises two and three day modules which are held approximately 12 weeks apart to maintain momentum. This time frame includes completing the Systemic Team Coaching ® Certificate programme which also doubles as the first module of the fuller diploma programme.

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.

If you would like to find out more before applying, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be delighted to help you in any way we can.

Is there any pre-course work?

As this is a one year Diploma programme there is a recommended pre-course reading list and an entry tutorial with a member of the course faculty. You will be expected to arrange your own client team to work with for the duration of the programme, ideally you will have this client team in place prior to attending the first full Diploma module.


You will work with our team of highly trained and experienced team coaches, some of whom have played a key role in developing the programme’s content. Click here to see a list of faculty.

How much time will the work and study between modules take?

We suggest that you allow the same amount of time that you spend attending the training, for working with your own client team and for the course work between modules – so on average, you should anticipate an additional 11 days over the duration of the course (about a year). We also provide a reading list with mandatory and discretionary reading.
