This partnership brings together BPP’s high quality apprenticeship approach with Grant Thornton’s extensive coaching insight and expertise, to create a programme with practical application from the outset. The 12-month training programme is designed for employees who work with a wide range of individuals and teams across organisations, to empower them to enhance their performance through a range of coaching skills.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Set by individual employers.

  • Applicants must be employed in a relevant role to apply.
  • Applicants without Level 2 English and maths will need to achieve this prior to taking the EPA.

For those with an education, health and care plan or a legacy statement, the apprenticeship’s English and maths minimum requirement is Entry Level 3. A British Sign Language (BSL) qualification is an alternative to the English qualification for those whose primary language is BSL.


The Coaching Professional Apprenticeship is designed for current or aspiring coaches who provide one-to-one coaching in a professional environment. This could be a full-time coaching role, but more likely will be individuals coaching alongside their day job.

Participants will be required to build a professional portfolio to showcase their capabilities that include how they have applied the tools and frameworks that they have learnt throughout the programme.
