Course Description

NB: Please book your place on the Coaching Diploma - Day One (10 September) to secure your place on this 3 day course. 

Day 1 and 3 : 10 September 2019 and 4 December 2019


We are delighted to once again offer our Coaching Diploma which has been accredited by the GTCS for Professional Recognition. 

Research by national bodies (Scottish Government and GTCS) highlights a desire to build coaching capacity in schools. This research is confirmed by feedback from participants on previous SCIS coaching events.  Colleagues who attend the 3 days will have the option to attend a train-the-trainer day later in the session; some colleagues who previously attended this are now leading professional learning to develop a whole school approach to embed a coaching culture approach in their context

The 3-day programme draws upon the work of “Success Intelligence”, a method devised by world leaders Robert Holden (author of Success Intelligence) and Ben Renshaw (author of Supercoaching).  In addition to attendance and participation during the days, participants will have the opportunity to engage in: 

  • Coaching practice between taught sessions, with co-coach taking forward elements of the taught programme
  • Reflective practice on coaching approaches  – personal and professional
  • Reflective learning via a journal capturing impact of research and literature, taught days, co-coaching and other coaching interactions and approaches
  • Professional reading

Colleagues wishing to submit for Professional Recognition will be required to submit a final reflective assignment – after the final session of the programme.

The Coaching Diploma is underpinned by the following aims: 

  • To develop essential skills for non-directive coaching
  • To explore the application of non-directive coaching as a tool for enhancing personal the development,  as well as the development of staff and peers
  • To assess and understand the impact of coaching upon performance
  • To identify strengths and development areas for personal leadership styles


The Diploma will be led by accredited Coaching Providers and colleagues will be required to have access to the essential reading text: “Supercoaching”, Graham Alexander and Ben Renshaw -


 Please book early to secure your place.
