There are two mandatory units in this qualification, which focus on understanding good practice in workplace coaching and mentoring. They introduce what coaches and mentors do, the processes they follow and the qualities and abilities individuals need to be effective in these roles. You will complete the qualification with two additional units. The first deals with reflecting on own skills as a coach or mentor in the workplace. The second requires you to plan and carry out 36 hours of either coaching or mentoring, with appropriate supervision and support.
Exams and Assessments
For each unit you will be required to provide written evidence to satisfy the learning outcomes. This will consist of a range of formal written academic assignments, a coaching or mentoring log and in-class presentations. You will be required to produce a portfolio of appropriate evidence along with supporting documentation.
