How it Works
Our superior model of layered, multi-media learning means that your motivation stays high right the way through your qualification.
The course starts as soon as you register
You are given access to the password protected members' area of the website and to its online resource centre.
You can then join our international online community, with over 2000 members at any one time. Chat with other coaches on the same course and learn from the more experienced hands.
You also have access to our Virtual Seminars - telephone conference calls where an informative and entertaining talk is delivered every fortnight right into your handset. We've even recorded 25 hours worth of past Virtual Seminars for you to download to your iPod and play at your leisure.
The syllabus is the most advanced in the UK. We believe it eclipses anything offered elsewhere, and that any coach undertaking this level of training will stand head and shoulders above anyone who has attended a lesser programme. The course has been designed by professional coaches. It is accredited by The Open and Distance Learning Quality Council (ODLQC) and endorsed by The Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM).
Watch out for the postman!
Within days of registration our courier will deliver to you a huge package of training materials. Your living room floor will be covered as you sift through the exciting array of resources. But don't worry. You won't be daunted as we have produced a "Quick Start" for you. Just follow the clear instructions in your Welcome Booklet and you will know exactly what to do.
Be our guest at our luxury conference venue
Please Note - Due to the Coronavirus outbreak all our in-person training is postponed until further notice but our live online training continues as normal.
You will soon be ready for your first live training Accelerator Day at Latimer House in Buckinghamshire or Wychwood Park near Manchester. Why these venues? The location are accessible, the parking free, the disabled facilities convenient, the food excellent, the bedrooms reasonably priced and the bars and lounges convivial. The duty staff know us well and always pay attention to our guests - and that means you.
Let us know which day you would like to attend (dates at least six months in advance are shown on our website) and we'll take care of the rest. The qualification consists of six of these days, with one running every month. They are all different, all unique, with a variety of tutors.
The interactivity and sense of community are such that you might not want to leave at 5.30pm!
Slot the training into your busy schedule
99% of our students work full-time and find no time challenge with taking the qualification. Indeed the recent trend is for most people to do more than one course. Because we have taken a multimedia approach you can read the training manuals on the train, watch the online video resources at home and take part in the Virtual Seminars from the office - learn in whatever way suits you.
People find that the live training accelerators become a sea of tranquility in otherwise busy lives. All look forward to the boost of energy and motivation it gives them for the coming month.
How long does it take to qualify?
We don't impose a deadline on you finishing the corporate coaching course, you can fit the training in around your own life and complete the qualification at your own speed. Anything from nine to eighteen months is typical.
Between each live training accelerators there are assignments to be completed based on course materials. Complete those assignments, attend the accelerator, get personalised feedback from our assessors on your practice coaching and with a little bit of help from us you have done all that is needed to complete your qualification.
We pledge we will do everything we can to help you complete your course. Everything!
