The Doctor of Coaching and Mentoring (DCM) fosters excellence in professional practice by developing the capabilities needed to become a leader in the field. You will be challenged to augment your existing expertise and to push the boundaries of your knowledge, in order to operate at the highest level, be confident in providing facilitation and consultancy, and be competent in researching the field.
This part-time programme is delivered by the International Centre for Coaching and Mentoring Studies and is aimed at experienced professionals seeking to extend their knowledge and understanding of coaching and mentoring. It has been designed to develop skills and confidence in providing facilitation and consultancy, as well as competence in research and evaluation. The programme integrates professional expertise and scholarly inquiry, culminating in doctoral research training and the design of original empirical research leading to completion of a doctoral thesis.
The Doctor of Coaching and Mentoring is the only one of its type in the UK. Its key features are:
During the first stage of the programme, which on a part-time basis normally takes three years to complete, you focus on the taught level 7 and level 8 components of the curriculum. Once this is successfully completed, you move to the second stage - the thesis. Normally this takes two years to complete part-time.This course is designed as a five-year, part-time programme (or three years with level 7 exemptions for existing master’s qualifications), and is delivered through monthly study days held in Oxford (approximately eight per year).
In addition there are regular online workshops and discussions to support learning at a distance. There is individual coaching and academic support: face-to-face, telephone and email as appropriate.
The DCM is cross-disciplinary in its approach. As well as focusing on your own professional development - through reflective practice and individual, peer and group learning activities - you also consider the pivotal organisational and psychological dimensions of coaching and mentoring in depth.
This programme is delivered through monthly seminars and study days held throughout the programme which candidates are required to attend. Progression will be dependent upon successfully completing assignments based on the methodological training carried out during these study days.
Assessment is through a variety of coursework assignments and a thesis, which is examined by traditional viva voce (oral examination).

Are you seeking to progress your career as a manager and leader in primary, secondary or tertiary education? Our Doctor of Educational Leadership (EdDL) degree focuses on helping you gain high standard professional, organisational and political skills and knowledge to meet the vast challenges associated with improving both public and private educational environments.
The University of Bolton’s EdD in Leadership is designed for working professionals who aspire to be educational leaders. If you’re looking to strengthen your skills for leading groups in high-performing teaching and learning organisations, and connect relevant research with practice, this part-taught doctoral programme can support your career development.
The Doctor of Education in Leadership differs from the traditional PhD in that it is in two parts. Stage one, the taught element, offers you the opportunity to complete ‘blocks’ of blended learning – combining online rich media-based interaction and collaborative work, seminars, online taught elements and tutorials with interactive collaborative coursework. You’ll be guided to explore topics such as revisiting learning and teaching, the impact of emerging educational models, transformative learning, managing politics and policy influences, leadership and organisational transformation, and mastering the ‘self’.
Stage two involves a programme of directed and independent study leading to the development and submission of your research proposal, followed by the production and defence of your own critical commentary. Our welcoming team of experienced, professionally and academically qualified staff will help you to understand how you can align your research topic of interest to other current research in applicable fields, and apply it to your own professional practice and context.
