This Level 5 accredited course is specifically designed for accredited/registered coaches, counsellors and therapists. There is a globally growing need for trained professionals to support children and adolescents, both through intervention and by providing appropriate coaching tools and skills to help reduce and prevent mental health challenges.
On successful completion of this course, you will be trained and qualified to work as a coach supporting children (4-11 years old) and adolescents (11-18 years old) both inside and outside of a school setting. As part of your training, you will learn about:
‘Coaching Basics’ – core qualities, skills and tools needed to safely and effectively coach children and adolescents.
‘Coaching Ethics’ – the difference between counselling, mentoring and coaching; when coaching is and isn’t appropriate; how to refer clients to other support services when coaching is not appropriate and the importance of child protection, safeguarding and confidentiality.
The developing brain – how it might impact the performance, mental health and wellbeing of children and young people.
How to deliver ‘The Other Subject’ – a collection of ground-breaking and accredited coaching programs that help children and adolescents thrive physically, mentally, emotionally and academically.
