This dynamic programme appeals to practitioners in education, learning and development and to those working in roles where coaching and mentoring are key assets.

Focusing first on self reflection, then on partnership in practice and finally in wider group work, this transformative programme is rooted in soft skills and communication methods.

All too often key skills such as listening, questioning, providing feedback and reading body language are overlooked, impeding our ability to mentor or coach successfully. This programme features three modules which explore self reflection and action thus enabling you to assess your existing skills and build on them to move forward.

The programme develops your understanding of traditional and modern coaching and mentoring theories and is informed by practice and research in the field. You will challenge the way you work with colleagues and other stakeholders including service users and will evaluate new ideas, applying additional techniques to your own practice.

Enabling you to enrich and develop key skills and knowledge, the programme promotes career progression. This will enable you to improve your people development skills, take a more effective leadership stance in your practice, expand into a leadership role or strengthen your CV.
