This programme in coaching supervision is designed for experienced coaches with an active coaching practice who already have a postgraduate qualification in Coaching, Psychology, Counselling or equivalent. The aim of the programme is to provide highly experienced coaches with an opportunity to extend their competences and skills into the area of coaching supervision.

The programme will introduce different discourses of coaching to enable such an overview. Participants will be exploring multiple perspectives on coaching in order to develop an approach to supervision that is professional, ethical and tailor-made for individual coaches using a wide variety of approaches. The programme will provide an opportunity to enhance understanding and develop advanced skills in order to address various issues of the supervision process. The programme is designed to use innovative and intellectually stimulating methods to take senior practitioners to a new realm of practice.
