This very popular programme prepares you for the International Coaching Federation’s Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential.
Not only does it meet the ICF’s requirement for 60 hours of coach specific training but it also includes the necessary ten hours of coach mentoring. And, uniquely to our programme, it gives you the opportunity to get the ILM Level 7 Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring as well, by way of an optional ‘top-up’.
Format: A series of 4 two-day modules over six months, with 3 group coach mentoring webinars plus 3 hours of one-to-one support.
Delivery options: The open programme is held twice a year (Spring 2021 and Autumn 2021 will be entirely virtual; also available on an in-house basis).
Rosanne Bernard PCC is an experienced coach, trainer and facilitator with substantial experience gained across the public, private and VCSE sectors. She has many years’ experience coaching managers within organisations at all levels and also delivers coach training programmes, such as our ICF Certified Coach Training Programme and our non-accredited training programmes on coaching skills for line managers.
One of our most experienced and popular trainers, Rosanne is particularly well qualified to deliver this programme, having been through it herself. Rosanne now delivers all the workshop sessions, while Elizabeth runs the one-to-one and group coach mentoring sessions, and leads the skills benchmarking exercise during module 4.
For Rosanne, coaching is a creative and explorative process and very much a journey of self-discovery. This philosophy underpins her approach to leading this programme too, making it a particularly rich and fulfilling experience for all participants.
