Coaching and Mentoring (PGCert)

Course Description

The School of Education provides an online portfolio of Career-long Professional Learning (CPL) programmes for the education workforce, to meet both current and emerging needs associated with the profession and to reflect the increasing importance attached nationally to professional learning, update and practice.

The programme is aimed at professionals from across various sector organisations (public, private and voluntary) who have responsibility for training and development and/or supporting peers and colleagues as part of their own organisational development policies.

About the programme

The programme promotes cross-sector/interagency/ inter-professional working and the development of core, transferable skills appropriate for postgraduate study at SCQF Level 11 (Masters).

Additionally, it provides an opportunity for sustained engagement with the subject; to embark on an incremental learning journey in a supportive and non threatening environment. Here you will explore the body of theoretical knowledge required and issues of practical implementation and management of coaching and mentoring in workplace contexts.

Depending on your workplace context, this could have an immediate impact on professional practice.

Your learning

The course comprises three modules – Critical Self-evaluation and Development; Situated Professional Learning; and Contextualising Coaching and Mentoring. It is likely to take approximately 18 months to complete. Further study may be possible through the School of Education’s CPL portfolio.

Our Careers Adviser says

Engagement with coaching and mentoring techniques is inherent within many professions and roles and participants will gain an increased awareness of their role in these areas and the skills base to enhance personal and professional practice.

Our libraries are stocked with a vast range of specialist resources to help you in your studies, and you’ll also have access to our extensive electronic library collection (including e-books and academic journals) and the virtual learning environment, Moodle.
