It is designed for senior managers who wish to develop their expertise in the field of coaching or who wish to establish coaching on an organisational level.
It is very much focused on the development of competencies and building the confidence, self-awareness and reflective practice that underpins lifelong continuous personal and professional development. And is facilitated by HumanTechnics and comprises five workshops. Participants are required to actively practise for a minimum of 20 hours, complete assignments and join the SWLA coaching register and coaching network.

And participants to have gained both the theoretical knowledge and practical professional practice required to coach effectively and ethically within the healthcare system.
