You will be required to attend classes one day per week.
The course is designed to develop learners planning to move into a development role or start a career as a freelance coach and mentor. You will participate in lectures, group discussion, assessments and team exercises.
There are three mandatory units:
- The first unit, ‘Understanding the skills, principles and practice of effective management coaching and mentoring’ aims to enable learners to understand the role and contribution of coaching and mentoring, and build a business case.
- The second unit, ‘Reviewing own ability as a management coach or mentor’ aims to give learners the ability to critically review their own personal qualities, skills and competence.
- For the Diploma, the final unit is an extended 100 hours of coaching and mentoring, with multiple clients, and there is an added focus on using supervision and reflective review to develop individual practice.
