Applicants for the Postgraduate Diploma in Career Coaching programme should normally possess a degree of a recognised University or equivalent. Applicants without formal qualifications who possess substantial experience in an appropriate field and can demonstrate confidence about taking academic and practical study may be admitted onto the postgraduate programme. Applicants can choose to enrol for the award of postgraduate certificate. Applicants for MA would normally have completed the p/g Dip Career Coaching or an equivalent post graduate qualification.
Months of entry
This programme is the only one of its kind in the UK and will combine academic rigour with practical skills to ensure that all graduates are both highly effective and credible coaches. The School has a strong reputation in both coaching and career guidance, so students from the career coaching will benefit from excellent teachers from different backgrounds leading to a balanced and comprehensive programme. With 1.6m redundancies predicted in the next few years, and a new all-age career guidance service starting in April 2012, there are likely to be many opportunities for career coaches in the coming years.
The course has now been officially recognised by the Institute of Career Guidance and we are in the process of ensuring that graduates from our course are automatically eligible to apply to go on the Register for Career Practitioners (subject to certain module choices and submission of a professional portfolio).
We work closely with the Association for Coaching, and by September 2013 we anticipate that our course will have AC recognition.
In partnership with The Careers Group London, we have developed an HE pathway through the programme.
Information for international students
In the case of applicants whose first language is not English, then IELTS (or equivalent) at 6.5 is required. International qualifications will be checked for appropriate matriculation to UK Higher Education postgraduate programmes.
