The Programme - accredited by EMCC at Foundation Level 4 An increasing number of managers, parents, teachers and community workers are recognising the value of engaging in coaching conversations to support individuals in achieving sustained improvements in personal and organisational performance.

Testimonials from recent graduates ?I am using the skills I?ve learned during the foundation course on a daily basis, and I am loving the impact it has on the way I connect with people. I am also aware that there is a lot more to learn and I can?t wait to start the next part of my learning journey?. ?I spent a great deal of time assessing the available courses on coaching before choosing i-coach and have been really pleased with my choice. My key criterion was how the course can help me to develop my range of skills and knowledge towards my own signature coaching style that is congruent with beliefs and values.? Very insightful Programme! It provided me tools and frameworks that not only enhanced my professional skills but also aided my personal development. I would highly recommend this to colleagues and friends who are interested in understanding fundamentals of coaching and its effectiveness. Who is it for?
