Focus on the skills you need

There are three mandatory units in this qualification, which you can take as either a Certificate or a Diploma. The first unit, Understanding the skills, principles and practice of effective management coaching and mentoring aims to enable you to understand the role and contribution of coaching and mentoring, and build a business case. The second unit, reviewing own ability as a management coach or mentor aims to give you the ability to critically review your own personal qualities, skills and competence.

For the Certificate, the third unit requires you demonstrate your ability to plan, deliver and review at least 12 hours of coaching and mentoring in your workplace. For the Diploma, that is extended to 100 hours of coaching and mentoring, with multiple clients, and there is an added focus on using supervision and reflective review to develop your own practice.
