To pass the course, you will need to work through e-learning modules, unlocking new ones each week, as well as completing a short online assessment. The e-learning can be completed in stages in your own time. 

Here’s how it works: 

When you enrol, you’ll be given exclusive access to our online coaching community, which is a place for you to share tips, discuss ideas and learn from other coaches as you work through the course. We encourage you to stay active on the community and get involved in discussions to get the most out of your experience. 

You’ll also have access to a number of useful resources, case studies and practice videos to use alongside your weekly webinars, giving you the chance to apply practical skills to real-life coaching sessions.
