Introduction to Coaching Theory and Skills
You'll learn about psychological approaches to coaching, with an emphasis on contextual behavioural coaching. You'll also gain an understanding of the ethical and moral issues within coaching practice, how to evaluate the coaching evidence-base, and evidence for the effectiveness of different coaching approaches.
Importantly, you'll also have the opportunity to practice coaching and experience being coached by other peers in collaborative learning groups of three people.
These small coaching groups will enhance students coaching competencies and help them to build trust, rapport, and agreed aims with their clients. These learning groups will also provide opportunities to develop further self-awareness so students can see how their own history, knowledge, skills, and abilities impact on their coaching practice.
