Gain a professional certificate whilst coaching you team to success!

This course will show you the skills to empower and motivate your team members. Coaching skills help you develop your direct reports, by asking powerful questions provoking them to think of solutions for themselves. This course enables you to hold formal coaching sessions with colleagues, as well as using coaching skills on an informal basis as part of your job. It gives you a recognised qualification in workplace coaching.


The Level 3 Certificate in Coaching is a concise qualification made up of four mandatory units which introduce the key aspects of coaching in the workplace. These modules are spread over four days, during which you will also receive three individual tutorials. The modules are:

  • 'Understanding good practice in workplace coaching';
  • 'Organising workplace coaching' ;
  • 'Undertaking supervised coaching in the workplace';
  • 'Undertaking an extended period of supervised coaching in the workplace'

In addition, you will need to complete 36 hours of workplace coaching sessions with your own staff. Each coaching session is evaluated by you and the people you coach, and this forms part of a portfolio of evidence required for the award. You also need to complete a short assignment, keep a coaching diary and develop an assessed personal development plan and reflective log.

By the end of the course, you will:

  • understand the role of the workplace coach
  • be able to self-access a variety of interpersonal communication skills
  • give effective feedback to learners
  • understand the range and value of different learning resources that support safe and effective coaching
  • gain practical skills in how to monitor and record learner progress
  • plan, organise and undertake workplace coaching sessions
  • monitor/review your own workplace coaching performance
  • further develop and improve your planning, organising and evaluating your workplace coaching.
