Why Career Coaching?
Now more than ever people are seeking career coaching. Organisations are also focussing on the need to offer career advice and coaching as part of their approach to talent management. BSC recognise the importance of this and have developed this specialist CPD course for coaches in, or wishing to move into, this role or for individuals who would like to provide career coaching on a freelance basis.
This Online Face to Face, ILM Recognised programme that aims to use executive career coaching skills in the context of career issues. Learners will build on their skills and techniques to provide effective career coaching and counselling.
The programme is held over 2 days, with 1 hour of home-learning following each session and is a very practical, skills-based programme that is underpinned by knowledge and theory. Prior to the programme you will have a 1-1 meeting with the tutor to identify your learning priorities. You will also be given access to a range of career tools and techniques that can be used in career coaching and try them out. You will be asked to complete the Strong Interest Inventory prior to the programme which will also be used. Following the workshop days, learners are to complete a coaching diary assignment based on real-life career coaching sessions. This is a unique opportunity to gain recognition through ILM Recognised certification.
