Course content This part-time course comprises seven modules of study amounting to 180 M-level credits. Its modular structure will allow you to design a programme according to your particular area of interest. As courses are reviewed regularly, the list of modules you choose from may vary from that shown here. Coaching and Mentoring Practice (20-credits) begins the course with your own professional coachmentor and provides vital experience of acting as mentorcoach and of being professionally supervised in that role. It is an opportunity to apply the coaching and mentoring methodologies of personal profiling and personal development planning, which are then translated into rigorous intellectual study through reflective practice and critical analysis. You may choose whether to focus specifically on mentoring, performance coaching or developmental coaching. The practice module draws on the expertise of internationally recognised coaching and mentoring experts. The module also includes a 180 degree feedback system and systematic reflection on practice which enables you to gain insight into areas for personal and organisational growth. Alongside the practice module you undertake two core 20-credit modules: Transformational Learning and Adult Development encourages critical thinking and expands awareness of a number of issues in adult learning and development that impact directly on coaching and mentoring. Psychotherapeutic Dimensions of Coaching and Mentoring focuses on the implications for coaching and mentoring of the three main areas of psychotherapy and counselling: psychodynamic, humanistic and cognitive behavioural. The philosophy and theory of the different schools that have evolved within these orientations will be explored, along with the different techniques and models, and how these may be used to inform coaching and mentoring practice. Boundaries and ethical issues will be considered and respected. Students successfully completing these three modules may leave the programme with the Postgraduate Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring Practice. At the Diploma stage you also complete three 20-credit modules: Advanced Coaching and Mentoring Practice takes you into a more challenging level of professional practice, with in-depth workshops developing the practice of the reflective, evidence-based professional practitioner. You continue to develop your coaching and mentoring practice, and to receive one-to-one supervision, during this module. In addition, you select two 20-credit modules from the following: Psychological Perspectives on the Self Coaching and Mentoring in Organisations Independent Study (may be work-based or theoretical) Research in Coaching and Mentoring (this module is compulsory for students completing the full MA) Master s-level study culminates in a 60-credit Dissertation module.
