Our diploma-level training courses are for anyone who would like to professionally coach children (aged 4-11), adolescents (aged 11-18) and adults inside and outside of a school setting. This course is accredited as a Level 7 coaching course, which is the highest level for diploma training with the IAPC&M.
A core component of this course is training to deliver a collection of ground-breaking and accredited coaching programs that help children and adolescents thrive physically, mentally, emotionally and academically (The OS Programs). The programs have been primarily created for delivery in schools but can also be delivered outside of schools. After completing The OS Programs, participants receive a formal certificate to acknowledge the valuable coaching and life-skills that they have learnt and acquired. They may then use this to enhance and strengthen their personal profile/CV.
Each program uses tried and tested coaching tools and techniques. These tools and techniques are also blended with neuroscience, cognitive behavioural science, positive psychology, mindfulness and resilience-based methodologies to make them truly integrative and impactful programs.
There are eight programs carefully crafted for every year of school from Reception (4-5 years old) to Year 13 (17-18 years old). Each program is based on one of the following colour-coded modules, representing a key area for maturation and development in children and young people:
|Module 1||Module 2||Module 3||Module 4|
|Focus and awareness||Relationship with myself||Relationship with others||Communication|
|Module 5||Module 6||Module 7||Module 8|
|Resilience||Future planning||Accomplishment||Endings |
All of the programs are flexible and adaptable. They can be used as a lesson, workshop, talk or assembly – alternatively they can be used to support children or adolescents one-to-one or in small groups inside or outside of a school setting. They can also be shortened and delivered in one session or expanded and delivered over a few weeks when there is the time to do this.
