Coach Supervision accompanies and promotes the professional development of qualifying and qualified coaches in the context of their practice. It offers coaches an opportunity to learn and develop through reflection and dialogue and to grow further towards personal and professional excellence. It offers coaches a similar resource to the one they offer their clients.
Purchasers of coaching want to know that they are buying the best. In organisations, coaching is increasingly becoming an integral part of the professional development of senior management and executive, and these organisations are expecting coaches to demonstrate their commitment to maintaining their professional best through being in formal supervision.
Also, at some point in the near future, national and international coaching bodies are likely to require their credentialed coaches to be in regular, on-going supervision. There will therefore be an increasing need for accredited supervisors.
Coaching Development is co-leading the profession in developing and supporting the growth of coach supervision with its Diploma in Coach Supervision. This training course is designed to build a body of well-trained, informed supervisors who understand the ethics, responsibilities, practices and defining features of the coaching profession. Coaching Development sees supervision not as advanced coach training, but as a parallel profession which serves and supports the coaching community.
To date, this programme has run seven times in London and South Africa.
The programme is for seasoned coaches who are willing to bring issues arising from their coaching and supervision practices to the training course for peer supervision and who are keen to set up their own supervision practice.
