The Diploma in Business & Executive Coaching is an accredited programme, leading to a UCD qualification in Business & Executive Coaching. This is the first fully accredited coaching programme in Ireland and it is accredited at NFQ level 9 and compromises 30 ECTS credits.
There are many offerings in the market and at present, no industry-wide validating body to set standards and guarantee consistency of product and quality in coaching education. In collaboration with PB Coaching (formerly Peter Bluckert Coaching), founder members of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC) we are committed to remedying this situation. An ethical code is available along with guidelines for supervision and standards for both coach practitioners and programme providers which should give greater peace of mind to those people looking to hire a coach or invest in their own coaching education. Our postgraduate programme contains all the key elements which are seen as best practice by each professional coaching association.
Coaching is a practical activity and coach training must be grounded in sound professional practice. The learning and feedback from workshops is a significant part of the programme. In addition to the practical development, the programme takes into account the personal development of the coach. We strongly believe that the coach needs a place to address and work through their own issues if they are to operate with the emotional intelligence required of an effective coach. We are firm advocates of coaching supervision as essential to good professional practice and build this into our workshop structure.
On successful completion of this programme, you will be awarded a postgraduate qualification by UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School. You will be able to offer support in the areas of personal and team leadership, team coaching and developing a coaching culture. You will have a working understanding of at least one psychological model for supporting change in human behaviour, attitudes, motivation and building teams. You will also be able to conduct critical analysis and reflection on the impact of their work on both the individual and the organisation.
This programme will equip established and aspiring business coaches with the competencies to deliver business and executive coaching at the ‘Practitioner’ level as defined by the European Mentoring and Coaching Council.
