Coaching is a process which supports individuals, groups and teams to move forward; it is proactive and focused on solutions and the future. Coaching is a rapidly growing form of development and is used by 71% of firms (CIPD Survey April 2008).
Our Postgraduate Certificate Course in Coaching provides an opportunity for managers, aspiring managers and others with an interest in coaching to develop and enhance their skills and knowledge of corporate coaching, people management and development from the basis of current theory and research.
Coaching is increasing in popularity, particularly as it is recognised as delivering both individual and organisational benefits.

Students will be required to deliver a brief presentation, prepare a critical study paper based on an in-depth study of an aspect of coaching and its application within organisations, and to critically evaluate the coaching approaches undertaken through a case study of a particular client (with the clients agreement.)
A degree at second class honours or above. Alternative equivalent qualifications and experience as may be approved by the Academic Standards Committee (Postgraduate) will also be considered.
All applicants should have some professional experience as demonstrated by one of the following, and in addition, in the absence of a second class Honours degree, the applicant should be able to identify some academic work which has been undertaken which testifies to his / her ability to profit from the postgraduate level of work associated with the Certificate in Coaching.
