Coaching Development (CD) is excited to launch this blended learning programme designed for people who want to benefit from a high quality, interactive, and experiential training in coaching skills, delivered face-to-face and through webinars.

This program, delivering 83 learning hours, will equip you with the training hours to take the International Coach Federation’s (ICF) entry level exam, the Associate Certified Coach (ACC). The programme consists of a thorough immersion in the ICF’s core competencies, the structures and processes of coaching conversations and an ethical approach to this type of developmental work. The learning is primarily experiential, and is supported by reading, reflecting and blogging. In between the taught days you will be engaging in coaching conversations which will enable you to consolidate and deepen your coaching ability.

Coaching Development has a worldwide presence as a training institution, and has been training professional coaches and managers since 2003.

The learning consists of

  • 49 hours of synchronous (real time) learning, comprising 7 days spread over 4-5 months. Days 1-3 will be held face to face in Bangalore, and days 4-7 will then run one day every 3 or 4 weeks thereafter through the internet. Each day comprises 7 hours of learning.
  • 24 hours of inter-modular coaching practice – 12 hours as coach and 12 hours as coachee.
  • A minimum of 10 hours of other learning: reading a coaching book, keeping a reflective journal of your learnings about coaching and yourself on your coaching journey, blogging, etc.
  • The face-to-face training will run concurrently in Bangalore, and participants from India will be joining the webinars.

Course approach to learning

The didactic part of The Coaching Practitioner will provide you with a robust foundation in coaching theory and approaches. Coaching Development’s philosophy is that the best learning happens when we can apply what we are learning to ourselves as well as to others. Thus you will have many opportunities to reflect on yourself, how you be in the world and how you can use these theories when coaching others. Through a combination of theoretical input and experiential work, with extensive practice, observations of your coaching and regular formal feedback from your mentor coach, you will develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills required of a competent, ethical practitioner of coaching.

Practice and development

You will practise and receive feedback on your coaching each day, and twice receive formal verbal feedback from a qualified mentor coach. Between days 3 and 7 you will submit three recordings of your coaching and receive three written pieces of feedback on your use of the ACC level coaching skills. This feedback focuses on current strengths and offers pathways for future development.
