Diploma in Professional Coaching Practice™

Professional Coaching first gained prominence around the 18th century. The role of the professional coach has, however, changed dramatically over the years and has been hidden in many different forms such as spiritual guru, natural healer, counselor, mentor and manager.

For the past 20 years professional coaching has been predominantly recognised within the sporting world, in athletics, swimming, and tennis and team sports, commonly known as the Sports Coach.

In the last 10 years there has been an increasingly significant interest in other forms of coaching. The three main areas are within Personal Life Coaching, Business and Workplace Coaching.

The course provides a comprehensive professional development experience that teaches participants a practical set of tools, techniques and models, and includes supervised coaching from experienced credentialed coaches.
