There are 3 virtual sessions of 2 ½ hours and a professional discussion of 1 hour. You will also need to practice a coaching session in your own coaching environment between the third virtual session and your professional discussion.

The course will be assessed via a professional discussion which will be based on a session that you have delivered in your own coaching environment (ie, club or school).

To secure your place on a course you have to pay via our online booking and payment function. Once you have paid you can then use your booking confirmation to claim back your course fee from your employer/club.
