Course Outline and Modules

Stage One: Supervised Skills Development and Supported Distance Learning

Supervised skills development

You need to complete 10 sessions of supervised skills development before you take on case studies.  

You can start your workshops at any time of the year and can book onto any workshop as long as there are places available. You don’t have to attend consecutive workshops, however, you can only start your workshops after you have completed the first two modules.

Tip: If you can read The Coaching Manual by Julie Starr (available from Amazon) before you start your supervised skills development workshops, this would be very helpful to provide you with an overview of coaching skills.

Supported distance learning

You can go at your own pace for distance learning with the full support of your tutor.  This is designed to give you the underpinning knowledge you need in order to coach others.  Completed work is passed onto your tutor for marking and comment and returned to you together with the next module.

You are required to keep a learning journal throughout the course. This records your personal and professional learning experiences related to the Diploma.

Stage Two:  Case Studies

Following module completion and your supervised skills development hours, you need to complete fifty hours of case studies. You complete all case studies in your own time and location, under remote supervision from your tutor.

Stage Three:  CPD and Course Evaluation


Potentially, depending on your lifestyle and discipline, this course could be completed in just over a year.

  • Stage 1: For each module, there is reading plus one 1000 word assignment.  Each module takes approximately 10-15 hours to complete so you could complete one assignment a week or fortnight.  For this stage, you are also required to attend supervised skills development workshops.  Stage 1 could be completed in a few months.
  • Stage 2:  This is 40 hours of case studies completed in your own time and location.  Case studies can run concurrently and could be completed within a few months.
  • Stage 3:  This is the quick formality of CPD reflection and course evaluation.

I have gained new skills and a new career.  I feel the course has opened my eyes and allowed me to learn more about a subject that I am passionate about: namely how people tick and how to help them.



I would like to thank you for your swift and balanced feedback, both on my assignments and case study notes.  There were a lot of constructive points which I took on board and there were as many encouraging comments which just kept me going.  The masterclasses which you led were brilliant.  Your insight and observations really helped me learn some ins and outs of coaching from the very beginning.  Thank you for the supervision calls too.  They were reassuring and helped me believe in myself more and trust the fact that I was on the right track!

What the students say


Here’s what some of our Diploma Students have said:

I think the biggest asset of this course was your expertise Laurel.  Your experience, support and guidance were really helpful.  The option of having face-to face and online skills development was also really valuable in developing my skills.

Amandeep Cheema


I have gained new skills and a new career.  I feel the course has opened my eyes and allowed me to learn more about a subject that I am passionate about: namely how people tick and how to help them.  I have a lot about different disciplines and elements of resilience and wellness.  The mixture of distance learning and face-to-face sessions worked really well for me.  The master classes were hugely beneficial to me and I think that the amount that can be learnt within that group is enormous.
