Career development and Coaching Studies furthered my passion

"Having an ongoing passion for learning, after acquiring an MBA, I decided to pursue a second master's degree in Career Development & Coaching. The course apart from providing me with the opportunity to expand into the understanding of how individuals perceive careers and thus offer better career and executive career coaching services to students and business executives, it made me further focus in business coaching and management by coaching and provided the opportunity to expand my knowledge by pursuing a PhD in the field of Management by coaching."

After a short course

A short course might be exactly what you need to ease into learning or take up a challenge at work. The course might be short in length, but not at all small in impact.

Coaching helps with my work at Warwick

"The certificate in coaching and mentoring has been brilliant, it has provided me with a solid foundation of core coaching skills, namely around effective listening, questioning and applying coaching models/tools in order to engage in meaningful coaching conversations. I have a strong interest in coaching/mentoring as I know first-hand how effective it can be. The skills that I have developed and strengthened are transferable and are helping me in my day to day work as a fundraiser for the University of Warwick. I also enjoyed learning alongside a friendly and supportive group of people. I highly recommend this course."
