EMCC Coaching Diploma

On the 2nd October we will open for applications for Cohort 10!

The role of coaching and individual coaches is increasing within NHS organisations, as an approach to enable organisations and their people to become more resilient, connected to the wider system and ‘change ready’.

This Practitioner Level Diploma in Coach Mentoring is accredited by the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC) and will:

  • Develop a cohort of coaches with the academic knowledge necessary to underpin their practice and the ability to continue their learning independently after completing the programme.
  • Enhance the confidence and experience of participants to enable them to be effective coaches

This programme is delivered mostly through webinars*, with only three face to face days throughout the programme. Two of these days  will be Coaching CPD sessions.  Details of CPD sessions will be shared on confirmation of a programme placement.
