About the courses

Two components are required to obtain this designation: a) one is educational and the other is b) experience. (a) The educational component consists of gaining a suitable professional body recognised qualification through one of three routes.

Route 1 consists of three taught Certificate programmes with the International Academy for Professional Development, followed by an independent study aided by an academic supervisor to gain a coaching Diploma. This is the preferred route for professionals with little previous coaching training.

Route 2 is intended for professionals who have already undertaken a basic coaching programme and have some experience of coaching and coaching skills. These individuals formally assess their current knowledge, skills and experience in coaching, through the distance learning programme Certificate in Professional Development (Specialist Topic) and fill any gaps before proceeding to a Diploma in coaching with the International Academy for Professional Development.

Route 3 is suitable only for professionals who have already undertaken an advanced training in coaching or mentoring at Diploma or  masters level. The Certificate in Professional Development enables them to highlight their experience and undertake projects. Those who can successfully demonstrate a satisfactory level of training can gain Chartered Coach Certification without taking one of the International Academy’s Diplomas.
