Course content

If you are committed to supporting and assisting the professional development of others, then the Postgraduate Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring is for you. This programme caters for a diverse range of professionals across youth and community work, business, leadership and management, early years and education who utilise coaching and mentoring as part of their practice. This diversity is one of the strengths of the programme, offering opportunities to share experience in a dynamic and interactive environment, and broadening participants’ understanding of the utility of coaching and mentoring in a range of settings. The programme offers a study route that will enable you to develop both your practical skills in coaching and/or mentoring and your understanding of the theoretical perspectives that underpin good practice. Applying your learning from the programme might entail adopting coaching as a style of leadership; fulfilling mentoring roles with new colleagues joining your organisation; acting as subject mentors in initial teacher education; coaching colleagues in a range of settings; providing supervision for colleagues or offering a service as an independent coach.
