Coaching Supervision Training

Coaching supervision training

The ILM Accredited Coaching Supervision Training Course is a practical and workplace-friendly programme providing frameworks, question sets, skills and techniques for coaching supervisors.

You will learn about recognised coaching supervision models, including the Workplace Coaching Supervision Four-way Contract, plus tools for one-to-one and group supervision, including Permission Protocol, the Balance of Assumptions, and Somatic Coaching.

Workplace coaching supervisors need to know how to provide a safe and collaborative experience for their internal coaches. Based on our Four-Way Contract, which identifies the key areas of focus for a supervisor of workplace coaches, the curriculum covers all aspects of Coaching Supervision including: regularity, content of a session, pitfalls, ethics and boundaries, as well as an introduction to all the main coaching supervision models in use by professional coaches today.

The course also covers tools and techniques for use in delivering supervision to professional coaches, and which will expand the candidate’s repertoire and deepen their awareness as a coach.

“Coaching supervision is a conversation with a coaching approach that provides a thinking space where coaches can be supported in reflecting upon their work with clients, build their confidence, reinforce their coaching mindset, and receive mentoring, recognition and challenge from another experienced coach.”
