Diploma in Coaching

The Diploma in Coaching aims to enable you to deepen your knowledge of the theory and practice of coaching. By the end of the programme, you will have built on your core coaching skills and developed clarity around your coaching presence and your unique coaching approach.


Given the challenges of COVID-19, for the first term the course will be delivered online, and then reviewed based on the government's advice. This approach has been taken since March, with very positive feedback from students. The online workshops will be delivered live via MS Teams, and replicate the classroom experience as much as possible. The workshops take a 'group-coaching' approach, so there are group plenary discussions, small group discussions in breakout rooms, trio coaching practice in breakout rooms, as well as theory inputs on models and approaches

The programme is designed to develop a community of learning, so that all students learn together and from each other. Some aspects of the content will be co-created collaboratively as you and the other students collectively determine your areas of interest for the diploma, incorporating experiential and theoretical inputs on coaching models and approaches as well as developing self-awareness.

Volunteer coaching is an important element in developing coaching skills. You will be encouraged to further develop your coaching practice by working with three volunteer coachees for the duration of the diploma programme.
