Learning outcomes

For any type of coaching to be at its very best, it is essential that the relationship between the coach and the coachee is held within a secure, robust and resilient space. This programme introduces the skills, knowledge and resources needed to create and maintain a safe ‘holding’ environment for a coachee to explore topics safely and confidentially. Specifically, by the end of the programme, you will be able to:


  • Demonstrate effective coaching skills during a formative assessment, evaluated against the Association for Coaching competencies;
  • Analyse the application of coaching in organisations, including the role of the internal and external coach; and
  • Discuss and understand the value of coaching and a coaching culture to enable individuals to fulfil their potential, and raise the performance of the organisation.

This programme is suitable for those who wish to formalise their business coaching experience and skills, including:

  • HR and Learning & Development professionals
  • Leaders, managers and others in organisations who want to explore more about the value of performance coaching in organisations
