This Postgraduate Certificate in Mentoring and Coaching has been developed to address the needs of teachers and other professionals working in a range of educational contexts. Enhancing your mentoring and coaching practice, the programme will support you in developing skills in critical reflective practice and critical thinking while also encouraging you to explore and experience mutual ways of working through investigating and critiquing contemporary policy. You will develop a strong academic underpinning to your work and be able to tailor your studies to focus on areas of professional and/or personal interest. The programme responds to Government priorities associated with teacher retention and development, providing a professional route in mentoring and coaching for those who hold, or are seeking to hold, specialist roles in schools and colleges and other educational settings.
