Associate Coaching Course: Coaching for Development - Overview

Coaching for Development


The Associate Coaching Course on Coaching for Development is a six-month programme in the study and application of Integral Coaching. This is an intensive coach training and apprenticeship programme designed for participants to emerge as coaching practitioners. The course enables delegates to see the world through someone else's eyes, and at the same time able to skilfully coach them to improved performance in any aspect of their lives. 

Is this course for me?

This course is ideal for:

  • People interested in evoking excellence in others while also being open to receiving coaching themselves so they too can bring forward excellence in their own endeavours. 
  • People willing to freely question their assumptions and try out new methods. 
  • People in leadership positions wanting to support and sustain the development of new competencies in their staff. 
  • People in organisations working as advisors, coaches, and specialists supporting human resource development. 
  • Consultants and private practitioners wanting to deepen or develop their coaching skill set as they support client growth. 

Key take-outs:

  • Participants meet as a group for three modules. Learning takes place in many different ways:
    • Group sessions — flow and philosophy of coaching; exploration of coaching models.
    • Individually — reflections, assignments, your own development as a coach.
    • In small groups called learning pods — supported by your mentor coach, a Professional Coaching Course (PCC) graduate.
    • In pairs with a self-chosen buddy coach from the class.
  • The balance of work between modules is self-paced, including readings, written assignments, and three detailed case-study applications of this coaching method with clients.
  • Each delegate receives written feedback on each of their assignments - a rich source of learning and reflection.
  • There is on-going support provided by the Centre for Coaching faculty over the six months.
