Your Profile

You are a consultant or executive coach working with a number of client organisations or an internal management/organisation development advisor or change consultant.

You are already working as a coach (not just as part of your management role), and have an opportunity for coaching practice in between modules.

You are working within and alongside complex and sensitive social and political environments that require the use of a rare combination of skills, knowledge, personal qualities and concern for professional ethics. Moreover, you often have to work in one-to-one settings with your clients, which limits the scope of peer support and feedback within your practice.

You are seeking an opportunity to reflect and deepen your coaching practice and are curious about the "here and are now" coaching relationship.

Entry Requirements

You will need to have:

  • A first degree or an equivalent academic award, or, for well-qualified candidates with significant professional experience without an academic qualification, evidence of appropriate conceptual and study skills, and

  • At least three years’ experience in an organisational consulting or coaching role, or an equivalent role, and

  • An ability to reflect on and learn from your own actions, motivation to participate in a peer learning community, and some awareness of your own emotional and behavioural process, and

  • English language proficiency to undertake a graduate level programme, i.e. TOEFL IBT above 100, IELTS above 7.0, or Pearson Test of English Academic above 60.
