Support after you Graduate...

The Online Coaching Practice Group

Many people find it hard to ever see a demonstration of coaching again after graduating from their Coaching course.  We offer Graduates a FREE ONGOING ACCESS to an Online Coaching Practice Group that meets monthly on a weekday evening. Here you can observe a coaching session against the ICF competencies, exchange coaching with others and provide and receive feedback from peers, based on the ICF Competencies.  Importantly, you are able to have ongoing contact with your Trainer to ask the questions that arise once you are 'out there' putting what you have learnt into practice.
