Team coaching is the fastest growing area of coaching but the number of supervisors, who have sufficient and relevant experience in team coaching is very limited. One estimate is that the world will need 150,000 new team coaches over the next five years. This program is your opportunity to incorporate team coaching supervision into your practice. It is led by leading global authorities on team coaching and on supervision, with guest appearances from other highly experienced team coach supervisors.

Who is the program for?

The program is designed for experienced supervisors (at least five years practice) of one-to-one coaches who want to add Team Coaching to their portfolio.

 Holders of the EMCC Global  ESIA award and APECS accredited supervisors will automatically be eligible for meeting the entry criteria to the programme.  Other forms of applied prior supervision experience and learning will also be taken into account. All potential participants will be interviewed in advance of acceptance on the program.

What will the program lead to?

This will be the pilot for evaluating the feasibility of accrediting Team Coach Supervisors. How this will be acknowledged is part of the pilot study.

What will the program cover?

There will be six 2 -hour modules, delivered online via Zoom, interspersed with five 2-hour Practicums. Prework for the program will include extensive reading (estimated 20 hours). You will be required to enlist at least three team coaches as practice subjects for the duration of the program and a total of five for your reflection logs. We will assist you in finding suitable volunteers.
