The programme is designed to meet the needs of adult learners who wish to develop their knowledge of coaching and mentoring, and to develop key practical abilities.

Coaching and mentoring are underpinned by two important philosophies. First, ‘people are experts in their own life and work’ and second, ‘the solution lies within’.

This programme creates an environment in which participants work collaboratively to share information and insights and to develop knowledge and skills in the tradition of the ‘coaching and mentoring way’.

  • Coaching & Mentoring Management & Leadership 

       With either:

  • Designing & Operating Coaching & Mentoring Schemes

Course structure

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.

Teaching and learning

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.

Approach to assessment

Assessment is through a variety of coursework assignments and a thesis, which is examined by traditional viva voce (oral examination).
