Course content

Coaching and mentoring play an important role in supporting and developing participants in all aspects of their everyday working lives in schools. The Postgraduate Certificate is designed to provide individuals working in a wide range of educational working environments with the opportunity to investigate and develop/enhance their coaching and mentoring skills.

Our course combines both the theoretical and practical aspects of coaching and mentoring in educational settings. The course offers a stimulating yet enjoyable approach to coaching and mentoring, regardless of your previous knowledge. Delivery will be by practitioners who are using these approaches in their daily work.

If you engage in the course you will:

  • develop your critical thinking skills and become a reflective practitioner
  • be able to articulate informed opinions with confidence
  • become aware of theoretical frameworks and current political agendas
  • become confident in the use of coaching and mentoring strategies.
