If you are interested in becoming a fully accredited, professional executive coach, equipped with the latest knowledge in the field, this is the programme for you.
Masters in Executive Coaching is a two-year, part-time, modular, self-directed programme. It is an opportunity to review and re-launch your practice, make the best of your natural skills, learn about yourself as a coach through supervision and co-coaching, and meet some of the most experienced practitioners in the field.
You will develop your coaching and mentoring skills, either to integrate into your existing consultancy and coaching work or to create a solid foundation for a new coaching and consulting practice.
The programme takes a relational psychological perspective, which will deepen your clients’ self-awareness and their understanding of the web of key relationships in their organisation. The aim is to develop your ability to respond to, initiate and enable change through the coaching process.
This programme has been developed by experienced coaching practitioners who have a combination of research, psychological and organisational development experience. Two of the programme modules have been awarded the EMCC European Quality Award (EQA) at Senior Practitioner level.
There are five modules altogether but you do not have to commit to the full degree programme until the end of module 3. For module 1 you will have two options: Coaching for Organisational Consultants or Team Coaching for Consultants. As both of these modules are Open Programmes, you may choose just to start with one of these and then sign up for the degree if you would like to go further.
After completing Modules 1 and 2, Module 3 enables you to prepare to become an Accredited Coach with Ashridge
Accreditation. This popular certification has been helping coaches to excel since 2002.

How you will learn
The programme reflects Ashridge
's philosophy about the nature of change and learning. You will be learning in an environment of reflection and experimentation, rather than simply relying on didactic input. The learning experience draws on the principles of adult learning and development and is well-grounded in research.
It is delivered through short teaching inputs on coaching theories and models, combined with small and large group discussions. Each module also includes 'co-coaching' with fellow participants as well as live supervision. In the second year, the programme delivery becomes a collective and deeper inquiry into the main elements of coaching: the coach, the client, the relationship and the organisation.
March, May & October.
