Our flagship coach training course with Prof. Christian van Nieuwerburgh, delivered fully ONLINE over 6 months with a GLOBAL cohort and a pathway to individual European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC) credentials. EMCC is an international body seeking to develop, promote, and set the expectation of best practice in mentoring, coaching, and supervision.
This course provides comprehensive training for educators in the skills, conversational frameworks, and "way of being" of coaching. Designed for educators by educators, the Coaching Accreditation Program takes into account the particular circumstances and context of the participants so that the professional learning is immediately applicable in educational settings.
The Coaching Accreditation Program provides a comprehensive, in-depth coach training experience for educators, in an engaging and convenient online format.
Research-informed, practitioner-focused is an important principle that underpins all our work at GCI, and this online learning experience is no exception.
At GCI, we believe that we act our way into learning rather than learn our way into acting. With this principle in mind, all of our courses have a strong emphasis on practice.
When we are engaged in praxis we are reflecting in action – taking what we are learning and applying it in real-life situations. Like our in-person courses, this online course enables praxis through a range of thoughtfully designed adult learning experiences including:
individual and group reflection activities
exploration of the latest coaching research and literature
co-operative learning tasks
practise opportunities using real workplace scenarios
observation and feedback
As a coaching organisation, we endeavour to model a ‘coaching way of being’ in our interactions with our clients by being:
We encourage a culture of high expectations through our commitment to the ongoing development of our people based on mutual respect and collaboration. Our consultants are expert coach practitioners who draw on a wealth of educational experience to provide the highest level of service as coaches and facilitators.
Participants who successfully complete all course requirements will receive:
A Certificate of Completion of an EMCC Quality Awarded Course
Eligibility to pursue a pathway to EMCC Accredited Coach status
Permission to use the “GCI CAP Trained Coach” badge in email signature, business cards and professional profiles
Before you register
Our online courses use Zoom as a platform for live interactive sessions. Please consider the following guidelines in the interests of a positive learning experience for all:
Ensure that you have sole use of your own computer or device during the live workshop sessions
Test video and audio (use earphones) on your computer or device in advance
Ensure you have a good connection to the Internet
Arrive on time and be prepared for each workshop
Take measures to ensure that you can be fully present for the duration of each workshop
Due to the interactive and collaborative nature of this course, participants need to be able to commit to all scheduled live sessions with their chosen cohort. We understand that unforeseen conflicts arise from time to time and you may need to unexpectedly miss some of the course. We will do our best to accommodate this but in the event that you miss a full live workshop session, we will recommend that you restart the course with a new cohort. An administration fee may be charged for this transfer.
Online courses require you to access resources and complete activities on our Learning Management System (LMS) in advance of live workshop sessions. Alternatively, for some courses you may be mailed hardcopy course materials or receive these on the day for in-person courses.
