Coaching Professional

Coaching Professional Apprenticeship     Level 5     Typical Duration: 18 Months

Provide skills coaching to individuals and teams

There has been a growing demand for the professionalisation of coaching to include one-to-one coaching, team coaching, leadership coaching and for coaching skills to be embedded within culture and governance infrastructures to support future ways of working. In this role, you’ll work with a wide range of individuals and teams across organisations, to empower and engage with them to enhance their 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. You’ll develop enhanced listening and questioning skills that can increase individuals’ and teams’ self-awareness to enable them to evaluate their own and others’ strengths and development areas, and use your emotional and social intelligence in an applied way to support the development of self-awareness, adaptability, resilience, wellbeing, motivation and confidence in the learner.

Delivery is a blend of:

  • Online content supporting the development of relevant knowledge, behaviours and skills, set by the standard
  • Workshops and live content to underpin the e-learning resources
  • Review meetings with the tutor and manager

Over the course of the apprenticeship, students build an electronic portfolio of evidence that showcases their knowledge, skills and behaviours. If apprentices do not already have Maths and English at level 2 or above, students will also study these as part of the apprenticeship standard. After a minimum of 12 months, when apprentices have completed their portfolio and are meeting the standard required, they progress to the final End Point Assessment (EPA)

Eligibility

People of all ages and educational backgrounds can become apprentices, but there are some restrictions, the most important of which are:

  • The employer and the training provider must ascertain that the apprenticeship will allow the individual to gain substantive new skills. The training therefore needs to be materially different from any prior qualification or previous apprenticeship;
  • The period of teaching and learning must be at least 12 months and, during this time, apprentices are expected to spend at least 6 hours a week of their time in “off the job” training. This must be part of their contracted working hours.
  • Before the learner commences their apprenticeship standard, a functional skills initial assessment in English and Maths will be taken to match the appropriate standard and level.
  • An assessment of their recognised prior learning will also take place.
