Enabling you to become an accredited ICF coach with Group Mentoring
What is Coach Mentoring?
The International Coach Federation (ICF) exists to advance the coaching profession by setting high ethical standards, providing independent certification, and building a worldwide network of credentialed coaches. To maintain these high standards they require all their coaches to receive 10 hours (7 group and 3 individual) of mentoring on their coaching skills, which this course delivers against.
Who is it for?
This programme is especially for coaches who have documented coaching experience, graduates of our Coach Training programme (who have already met the 60 hours of coach specific training requirement for ACC accreditation) and others with the appropriate training. This coach mentoring programme counts towards your 10 hours of ICF credential mentoring requirement.
What will you gain from Coach Mentoring?
By the end of this Coach Mentoring programme you will gain:
- Competence in working with, and an improved ability to demonstrate the 11 ICF Core Competencies in your coaching practice
- Advanced coaching skills – listening to others coach, practicing an aspect of coaching at each session and receiving robust and effective feedback
- Confidence that you are ready to finalise your ICF assessment process
- Enjoyment and learning from other coaches’ styles within the group
The need for Coach Mentoring for ICF Accreditation
The International Coach Federation (ICF) is the leading global organization for coaches, with over 35,000 international members. To become an accredited coach with the ICF, we follow their ACSTH (Approved Coach Specific Training Hours) route, which requires:
- 60 hours of coach-specific training (which you can obtain with our Coach Training Course)
- 100 hours of client coaching experience (with at least 8 clients)
- 10 hours of work with a qualified Mentor Coach ( which may include up to 7 group mentoring hours)
- A submitted recording of your coaching
- Coach Knowledge Assessment (CKA)
Our Coach Mentoring programme has been designed specifically to help you achieve your 10 hours of mentoring, comprising 7 hours of group mentoring and 3 hours of individual mentoring.
