This Accredited Short Training Course consists of the two individual Foundation programs and is a key module of the Child and Adolescent Coaching Certificate and Diploma courses. It may be taken independently as stand-alone training by teachers, parents and others in support of their work with children and adolescents. Please note that, on its own, it would not qualify you as a coach.
On successful completion of this course, you will have a basic coaching toolkit to support children (4-11 years old) and adolescents (11-18 years old) both within and outside of a school setting. As part of your training, you will learn about:
‘Coaching Basics’ – core qualities, skills and basic 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.
