What is involved?
Our approach adopts a highly practical approach to coaching and mentoring, and assessment focuses on real skills development to ensure maximum real-time benefits.
Participants will get to critically review their own ability by engaging in practical and value adding exercises.
They will also critically review the role and contribution of coaching and mentoring to themselves and their organisations. Participants will plan, deliver and evaluate at least 12 hours of coaching that will make a measureable difference to their coachee(s).
The Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring in Management is made up of three mandatory units which enable participants to understand, develop and demonstrate knowledge and skills in workplace coaching and mentoring:
The first mandatory unit participants explore the characteristics of effective coaches and mentors, going on to present a case for using coaching or mentoring in their organisation.
In the second unit participants review their own ability as a management coach or mentor, exploring their ethical and moral views as well as communication skills.
During the final mandatory unit participants plan and deliver a short coaching or mentoring programme in line with their organisational, divisional or team goals.
While it is necessary to include some theoretical input, coaching and mentoring are skills that can only be learned on the job, so this course is delivered experientially, with participants encouraged to try out the tools and techniques they learn, reflect on their experiences and get feedback from peers and facilitator. The methods of delivery include input and demonstration from the facilitators, discussion, individual reflective exercises, group exercise and activities.
