From a taste & see weekend to a fully accredited support package.
As you may know, APP offer trainee coaches a flexible, cost effective package that enables them to opt in or out of the APP Coach Training Programme at various stages along the route. Here's a brief look at the core training programmes on offer.
Acorn Practitioner weekend - taste and see option
If you are not sure of how to progress then we offer the Acorn Practitioner training as a taste and see option which equips individuals to train in the use of the ACORN Model and gain key coaching skills and tools that they can apply in day to day practice. This new flexible structure enables people to become practitioners before entering into the more involved coaching certificate courses and makes the qualifications more accessible to those who are thinking about becoming a coach but are not sure it is for them. Training in this way is also an excellent professional development route for those who want to upskill and apply a coaching approach in their workplace.
In addition to becoming a coach in easy, bite-size chunks, becoming an Acorn Practitioner invites you to become part of a community of practitioners eligible for ongoing support from the Acorn Community – such as coach supervision, continuing professional development, co-coaching and a chance to meet other coaches.Certificate in Coaching Practice - Our most popular course.The AC recognised Certificate in Coaching Practice - remains central to all of our training and is the heart of our work here. Individuals signing up for the 14 week programme will engage in an intensive, experiential learning journey that will provide the firm foundations on which to build their coaching practice. Other see it as a valuable personal/professional programme and are enriched by the skills and insight they gain from taking part (which many then adopt to influence their current work practices).
ILM Level 5 Qualifications - we offer the CCP and ILM Level 5 qualifications in Management Coaching & Mentoring as a dual award because the CCP foundation brings added value to the theoretical applications of the ILM programmes. If you are planning to set up a private coaching practice offering workplace coaching (from Performance to Executive) or to work as an Associate Coach for an established Coaching Provider then the ILM qualifications may suit your requirements.
