Individual Accreditation

One of our core purposes is the provision of accreditation to enable practitioners to demonstrate the highest levels of professional standards in the industry.

This is vital because:

  1. We believe that everyone has the right to be protected from non-accredited coaches, mentors and training providers
  2. We believe that every coach, mentor and coach/mentor training provider must be accredited to practice

By consistently demonstrating the highest levels of professional standards in the industry, our accredited members support us in building trust in the coaching and mentoring profession for the benefit of everyone.

Routes to Accreditation

  1. Where you have trained and completed a course with one of our accredited training providers (accredited route)

2.Where you have trained and completed a course through a training provider who is not accredited with us (non-accredited).

3.Where you have relevant training, possibly through applied prior learning (APL) or in-house courses but have not completed a dedicated coach/mentor training programme (non-accredited portfolio route).

 

If you already hold a credential or accreditation with a recognised organisation such as the ICF, EMCC or AfC and wish to gain accreditation status with us, the non-accredited route is available to you.

Four Levels of Accreditation

Level of accreditation is based on achieving several factors including the number of hours training you have received, and the number of hours of actual experience you have. The level that you choose to apply for is reflective of your capability.

  1. Practitioner
  2. Senior
  3. Master
  4. Fellow (usually by invitation to apply)

Except for Fellow, all levels offer you the opportunity to upgrade to the next level. Full support is offered to all our members in this process.
