"It was a truly thought provoking course.”

"One of the best courses I have been on for a long while – very informative. Excellent!”

Programme overview

A two day ILM recognised development programme combining the theory and practical application of the GROW and TGROW (i.e. Topic, Goal, Reality, Options, Will do) models and enables participants to learn more about the theory and practice of coaching as a leadership tool within a learning context.

  • Workshop 1 focuses on engaging with coaching, and then around 3 weeks later

This model allows face-to-face opportunities at Workshop 2 for participants to apply techniques learned on Workshop 1 and then to extend these skills further during Workshop 2 and apply to their personal experiences and practice.

  • Put new skills into practice (at workshop days and in the workplace)
  • Analyse, assess and plan to improve your own coaching

Who should attend?

The programme is suitable for all educational, health and social care professionals working in educational organisations as well as primary and community healthcare settings wishing to explore the theory and practice of coaching as a leadership tool.
