Coaching Professional



Start date: Flexible

Typical duration: 15 months


Coaches work with a wide range of individuals and teams across organisations, to empower and engage with them to enhance their professional performance.


The Coaching Professional Apprenticeship is designed for current or aspiring coaches who provide one-to-one coaching in a professional environment. This could be a full-time coaching role, but more likely will be individuals coaching alongside their day job.


With a growing demand for the professionalisation of coaching to include one-to-one coaching, team coaching, leadership coaching and for coaching skills to be within business culture and governance infrastructures, the broad purpose of the occupation is to work with a wide range of individuals develop their personal professional performance.


Coaching is a way of leading in a non-directive manner, helping people to learn through deep listening and reflective, open questions rather than instructing, giving advice or making suggestions. Learn more about the importance of coaching, a vital aspect to supporting individuals and organisations in increasingly volatile and ever-changing environments and industries.
