Course description

Coaching Skills Certificate - 2-day professional coaching course

This 2-day programme from the Academy of Executive Coaching (AoEC) introduces you to the core coaching principles and practice, enabling you to apply your knowledge in different professional environments.

During the Coaching Skills Certificate programme, you will learn how to use an effective four stage model that will allow you to begin coaching right away, you will also discover what kind of coaching is right for you. You will experience what it’s like to be an executive coach and begin to understand the power and success of coaching.

As organisational cultures have matured and coaching has become embedded in everyday language and professional life, the gap between people who have been exposed to coaching and those with no prior experience of coaching has widened. This training programme aims to bridge this knowledge gap by providing you with the right path into executive coaching. By doing so, this programme ensures you are learning alongside similarly experienced people and have the chance to share knowledge and practical insight.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This foundation level certificate in coaching is especially suitable for those who are looking to take their interpersonal skills to the next level, as well as professionals considering integrating coaching into their work routine or starting a career as an executive coach.

terrific team. Amazing how they crammed theory and loads of experiential practice into 2 days. A great introduction to those wanting to understand coaching skills or interested to test out coaching with a view to further development and possible accreditation
