About Our Diploma

OUR ACTP PROFESSIONAL COACHING DIPLOMA Includes 125 hours of study and COMBINES:

Small cohort groups  (maximum 20) so you can build strong relationships and a network of other coaches from a diverse range of backgrounds

Support to build your coaching business, with mentoring and courses so you can grow your business while you develop your coaching skills

Tutors and trainers from a wide range of backgrounds and with diverse industry knowledge, who support you every step of the way

Evidence-based coaching approaches including neuroscience, positive psychology, somatic coaching, DISC personality profiles, emotional intelligence and transactional analysis – as well as more mainstream approaches such as GROW – to give you a diversity of experience

A coaching buddy so you can build your coaching hours and opportunities for pro bono coaching if you want to work with third sector and charitable organisations (or if you are still working and want to get more hours under your belt before you take the leap!)

ARE YOU READY TO TAKE THE NEXT STEPS AND BECOME A HIGHLY QUALIFIED AND ICF ACCREDITED COACH?

ENROLLING FOR FEBRUARY 2022 NOW

This course is wide-ranging bringing in theories from neuroscience, positive psychology and transactional analysis as well as normative coaching methodologies. It is designed for you to build your own coaching style and coaching approach. We believe in equality and diversity so run a number of workshops to help inform your practice and integrate learning throughout the course.

What We Do

N

Each week (or month if you choose the weekend option) we meet on zoom for our sessions which are all recorded, so you always have access to look back on the training.

N

You are assessed with a live coaching session at the end of the diploma. Throughout the course, you’ll also get formal feedback on 4 x additional sessions and tutor-led feedback on at least 4 occasions.

N

You have the chance to coach and be coached in the majority of sessions and observe different coaching styles, so you can develop your own approach.

N

The group sessions are supplemented by 10 mentoring hours, where you work with an ICF (International Coaching Federation) coach of a PCC rating or above, focused on your development as a coach.

N

We believe in supporting you and working with each student as an individual, helping you track your progress to achieve your diploma working alongside our coach training manager.

What We Don't Do

M

We don’t make promises of 6 or 7 figures from doing the qualification. But we DO teach you about the financial aspect and help you build a thriving coaching business that plays to your strengths.

M

We won’t let you feel like a number. Every student is important to us and we have put significant support and resources into place, so you feel taken care throughout your diploma.

M

We don’t give you nice feedback for the sake of it! We have high and rigorous standards and although we are supportive, we also help you to step out of your comfort zone to become the best coach you can be.

M

We don’t say you have to wait until you are qualified to start charging clients. We work with you on an individual basis – based on your experience – and encourage you to start charging as soon as you are ready.

M

We don’t cut corners. The investment is higher than some of our competitors because we give each student 10 mentoring hours (worth £750), as well as providing you with high quality training in small groups + business mentoring and coaching and certifying you at a PROFESSIONAL level
