Course content

Coaching and mentoring is now viewed as an essential part of a leader or manager's toolkit. Organisations increasingly need to improve and change, developing independent, questioning employees who seek feedback and growth and leaders need to be equipped with the skills to meet their team's development needs, while encouraging self-reliance and creative problem solving.

Our new Postgraduate Certificate in Leadership and Management (Coaching and Mentoring) is designed to enhance and develop your knowledge and skills in this area, by giving you a critical understanding of some of the contemporary theory, practice and research in this field and then challenging you to demonstrate originality in the way you lead and manage your teams and organisations.

It will be of significant value to you, whether you are already working in a leadership or management position, or seeking to take your career along that path.

Learning from, and through, experience

The course has a strong practical bias, so the coaching and mentoring theories are taught in relation to the experiences of the participants on the programme. We use students' own case studies to enrich the classroom experience and encourage debate as well as drawing on the experiences of our tutors, who are all accomplished practitioners themselves.

The skills to lead and succeed

You will develop the transferable skills that are vital to be a successful leader or manager today from creative problem solving, to understanding interpersonal dynamics at work, to leading with a strong sense of social responsibility. You will also develop valuable self-reflection skills that you can take with you, as you develop and progress as a successful leadership practitioner.

Flexible learning options

We offer two different options as Postgraduate Certificates in Leadership and Management: this course, which focuses in particular on developing your coaching and mentoring skills, and the Postgraduate Certificate Leadership and Management, with a general focus on leadership and management.
