Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have to complete the training?
The training is very flexible. If you want to complete the training part of the programme over 2 days (programme) that is possible. It just requires more pre-work. However if you want to split the modules over a few days or weeks that is possible too.

The tutor on the training will discuss how you want to complete the programme. You will then agree to dates and times and the pre-work will be sent out in line with the agreed dates. We recognise that situations change and if you need to rearrange a module that can be accommodated. Ideally, we encourage candidates to complete their training 3 months for the programme. This keeps the learning fresh.

What is the assessment process?
There is no assessment within the development programme. For the programme, coaches will engage in coaching practice and receive feedback on their coaching.
What does it mean in small groups or one-to-one?
The benefits of this training is that you don’t need to wait to get a group of 12 people to run the event. We can run the training with just one or a few people. This means that you get high quality individual attention and support
How is learning undertaken in the training?
The training takes a blended approach. It consists pre-reading and work (videos and reflective examination of coaching in roles and organisation) before the training and before each module. Training notes and slides during Zoom based workshop.

Discussions and activities during modules to consider coaching and its application. Candidates will also undertake coaching practice and receive feedback on their coaching. For the programme to embed the coaching skills candidates undertake practice coaching in their workplace, then reflect on this and discuss the coaching with the Supervisor.

What are reflection notes and why do I need to do them?
A reflection note is an opportunity to examine your coaching session, what works and didn’t, what did you learn and how will you make changes. The coach simply captures these in a document and can be discussed with their supervisor. Reflection allows coaches to continually learn and improve in their coaching practice
