A Blend of Theory and Practice


Your program has been deliberately structured as a consistent “drip” (vs a ‘fire-hose’ intensive workshops).   Each week you will build on the skills and knowledge from the previous week, with time in between to reflect and practice.  The learning is made up of theory, practicum and portfolio development, meaning that by the time you graduate you are not only a certified coach, but you have your own unique coaching portfolio.  


(Active students can refer to their Graduation Checklists for a detailed breakdown of modules, classes and reflection requirements)

COACHING PRACTICUM
You'll often hear the term 'Coaching Confidence'.  It refers to a belief in yourself and a belief in the coaching process as a whole.  Practice builds confidence and gives you the opportunity to apply the techniques and skills learned in theory classes to real life situations.  Your labs are the perfect place for this.  Observed by an expert coach, and supported by your peers, you will be offered feedback and tips to further perfect your expertise.
