UCD Smurfit Executive Development marks a global first in Team Coaching Accreditation

UCD Smurfit Executive Development is delighted to be among the first three Universities globally, and the first in the EU and in Ireland, to have received accreditation by the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC) Global for its Professional Diploma in Team Coaching at Senior Practitioner Level. The EMCC Global Team Coaching Quality Award (TCQA) is an accreditation for training programmes which have met a set of core standards, applied rigour in assessment, and demonstrated a track record of impactful and practical learning and development for team coaching practitioners.

Programme Structure, Assessments & Workload

Delivered over a series of 12 days involving 5 workshops within a 12-month period. 100% attendance is required. The emphasis throughout the programme is on the practical application of knowledge to benefit the participant as a coach and their clients’ teams and organisations. Assignments include an essay, written commentary on a team coaching session and reflective learning journal.

Team Coaching Practice

All participants are also required to complete and log at least 14 hours of team coaching with a real team. Participants will need to source this organisational team before the programme commences and contract with the team so that the team coach can maximise their learning whilst also helping the team achieve its objectives from the coaching.
