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 four, 2-day modules, with 3 group coach mentoring webinars plus 3 hours of one-to-one support.
Delivery options: The open programme is held twice a year (Autumn 2021 and Spring 2022 will be entirely virtual; also available on an in-house basis).
