You are taught through a combination of experiential learning, reflective practice, lectures, coaching skills practice and interactive group work, all taking place within a lively and supportive learning environment. Experiential learning engages you in activities designed to enhance your understanding of the coaching process, and allows theoretical elements to become further connected with your own personal and professional experience. Reflective practice encourages a deeper level of engagement with application of theory to practice. Coaching skills practice allows you to apply and enhance your skills and knowledge as a coach within a structured and supportive setting, and receive feedback on your practice. Lectures are interactive and actively invite discussion and evaluation of the theoretical aspects of your learning.
In addition, meetings with personal academic tutors are scheduled on at least 4 occasions, either as a tutorial group or on an individual basis.
You will further enhance your learning and increase your abilities through the 36 hours of coaching practice required across the year of study, which take place outside of the teaching weekends, and the 24 hours of participation in coaching skills practice on the course.
