If you have participated in the Coaching in Higher Education course previously but have had difficulty completing the 6 coaching hours required to achieve the EMCC EQA Foundation Certificate in Coaching and would still like to do so, then the Coaching Practicum could be an option for you!
What is the Coaching Practicum?
The Coaching Practicum aims to provide an opportunity for you to engage in coaching sessions with peers who ideally were not in your iteration of the Coaching in Higher Education course. It is our intention that the Coaching Practicum will be offered once in each semester going forward to enable past participants of the Coaching in Higher Education course log coaching practice hours towards the 6 required to achieve their EMCC EQA Foundation Certificate in Coaching.
When is the Coaching Practicum taking place?
Register now for the Coaching Practicum which will take place online over the following 3 weeks:
- Friday, 17th November 2023, 14:00-16:30
- Friday, 1st December 2023, 14:00-16:30
- Friday, 8th December 2023, 14:00-16:30
How will the Coaching Practicum work?
In each session, you will be provided with a quick refresher on the coaching and mentoring tools that were presented in the Coaching in Higher Education course. You will then be paired with another attendee who was not in your original Coaching in Higher Education course, and you will be tasked with conducting a 30-minute coaching session, with one of you acting as coach and the other acting as the coachee. Following this, your roles will be reversed, and you will be tasked with conducting another 30-minute coaching session. Shelley Crawford, EMCC Accredited Master Practitioner (EIA-MP) and accredited Coach/Mentor Supervisor (ESIA), will be on-hand throughout to support you and answer any questions/queries you may have.
In this way, over the course of three weeks, you will have the opportunity to log three-hours of coaching practice towards the 6 hours required for the EMCC EQA Foundation Certificate in Coaching.
