Mark has designed and developed a range of training programmes including; mentoring, vocational exploration, supervision skills, appraisal models, team roles and behaviours, a national demonstrating competency programme for paid workers, a coaching programme for Mission Shaped Ministry participants and new models of leadership, to name a few.
Some of these programmes have been developed for a national setting while others have started life in a regional setting, later to be used in other parts of the UK. The common thread that runs through all these programmes is the focus on the individual and the setting of goals to move that person forwards. In other words the elements of good coaching practice have been both embedded and adopted as the preferred model of working.
Mark has, as part of his work been a tutor at the Methodist Theological college in Durham, based in Cranmer hall in St John's College. Apart from some teaching Mark has developed a Diversity programme for all Anglican and Methodist Students to complete. As part of tutorial work, Mark has developed the use of the coaching model as an integral part of the tutorial experience. Marks current work has been for the National Methodist Church and several local churches. Mark is a member and accredited coach by the International Coach Federation.
