The Level 1 Coaching Certification course is part 1 of 3 in our Coaching Accreditation, and teaches you the foundation skills of an organisational coach, including the models and structures that provide a robust process for high performance coaching sessions that get results.

Duration: Seven weeks (part-time) incorporating a workshop over three consecutive days (virtual delivery).

Certification: Certified Organisational Coach, Level 1 (Coaching Theory to Practice 1)

Who is the Level 1 Coaching Certification course for…

IECL coach training is aimed at mature, professional people with a minimum of an undergraduate degree (or equivalent business experience). The program tends to attract those with 10+ years working within an organisation of some kind, and frequently our participants will already have more than one degree. There are no specific “pre-requisites” for the Level 1 Coaching Certification program, but we do expect that you will be both mature and experienced in how organisations operate. During the application process, you will be asked to outline your background and reasons for wanting to complete this training. Additionally, each level of training requires the previous level(s) to be completed first and Levels 1 and 2 are pre-requisites for Principles of Organisational Coaching (POC). Levels 1, 2 and 3 combined make up our ICF Accredited Coaching Accreditation (ACTP), however Levels 1 and 2 also stand alone as fully rounded and rigorous coach training programs. In Level 1 you learn to coach in a practical and experiential way, building on the knowledge already in the room.          

 

 

Course Content

Your Level 1 Coaching Certification course includes:

  • Preparation work online, from three weeks before commencement of workshop
  • A three day intensive, experiential coaching skills workshop, including lunches and materials
  • Three follow-on co-coaching sessions, (required for certification)
  • Other follow-on activities online
  • A written Reflective Learning Task
  • 37.5 Student Contact Learning Hours
  • Participation in the Institute of Executive Coaching and Leadership’s Alumni Professional Development Program

The organisational coaching course emphasises interaction and practice. You’ll be applying the techniques you are learning throughout the three day workshop and in the co-coaching sessions following the workshop.

 

 

Outcomes

At the end of Level 1 Coaching Certification you will:

  • Understand what organisational coaching is and the context within which it sits
  • Have learnt and applied foundational models of organisational coaching skills
  • Be able to demonstrate the ICF core competencies of a coach
  • Have established your particular style as an organisational coach and learnt how to develop it
  • Know about the coaching relationship, in terms of framework, processes and outcomes
  • Understand how to frame and use coaching questions
  • Have practiced coaching and also had the experience of being coached
  • Have developed your “coaching toolbox” of useful models and coaching skills
  • Complete a reflective learning task which measures your understanding.

A comprehensive set of resources will be provided as part of the coaching course.

 

 

Application and Pre-Work

Prior to commencement of the Level 1 coaching course, potential coaches are invited to complete the application form, stating background, qualifications, relevant experience and reasons for wanting to become an organisational coach.  Three weeks prior to your workshop you will begin to engage in preparatory activities online and background reading on coaching philosophy.  All reading and logistics will be available online before the three day workshop (virtual delivery).

 

 

Certification

Successful completion of all Level 1 Coaching requirements leads to organisational coaching certification at that level.  Once you are certified at Level 1 you can start coaching right away, and can obtain Professional Indemnity insurance as a coach (recommended if you work for yourself). You may also choose to continue on to Coaching Accreditation via Levels 2 and 3.
