Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring

The Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring offers you a foundation of relevant models and practical skills that will equip you to engage in purposeful coaching and mentoring conversations and relationships.

If you are new to coaching and mentoring this course has been developed for you, focusing on the development of core coaching skills: listening, questioning and structuring a coaching and mentoring conversation.

You will explore the spectrum from directive to non-directive approaches, and the contrast between coaching and mentoring, encouraging you to identify where you wish to operate in your own practice.


The course is designed to develop a community of learning so that all students learn together and from each other. You will work together to support one another's learning, with both experiential and theoretical inputs on coaching skills and practices. You will coach one another, give and receive feedback and learn to reflect on your development, helping you grow your awareness of yourself as a coach or mentor.

Volunteer coaching is an important element in developing coaching skills. From term two onwards you will be encouraged and supported to further develop your coaching by working with volunteer coaches, sharing your experiences with the group.
