This award offers Masters accreditation for those already working as mentors and coaches (or in related roles) in schools, colleges and the wider workplace.
The focus on practice enables participants to develop their understanding of mentoring and coaching roles and relationships in their professional context, with reference to a range of theoretical models and wider, critical reading. The award provides the opportunity to explore the many ways in which coaching and mentoring approaches are used in the workplace and to consider the functions and purposes of these approaches and the impact on coaches, mentors and their organisations.
Participants will develop relevant skills through workshop sessions, academic reading and discussion, leading to the application and evaluation of new ideas in practice and planning for further professional development.
Participants’ work throughout the award is underpinned by critical reflection, which maintains a clear focus on the immediate workplace context and the coaching and mentoring relationships at the heart of what they do, as well as the wider professional arena in which they work.
