The Diploma in Coaching Supervision takes trainee supervisors through a rich programme of learning that deepens as the course unfolds.
The best way to discover the content of the course is to download the course brochure or explore the course page here.
However, to give you a bird’s eye view of the course content, the four modules and 20 sessions are covered briefly below.
The first module, Foundations of Supervision, comprises 7 live sessions and covers the core assumptions, philosophy and models of coaching supervision as well as the practical steps to establishing and carrying out coaching supervision.
By the end of the 7 sessions, you will already begin supervising coaches in the real world as well as practising supervision on the live training sessions.
The second module, Group Supervision: Theory and Practice, focuses exclusively on group supervision and through 3 live sessions will explore group dynamics and group supervision processes whilst allowing for group supervision practice in the safe but challenging environment of the live sessions.
The third module, Theoretical Lenses – Enriching Practice, comprises 7 live sessions, each of which explores a theoretical model from the perspective of its application within supervision. These sessions are not intended as primers on different schools of thoughts but rather will use pre-reading, group discussion, experimentation and case studies to begin to widen participants’ ability to respond in new ways within supervision.
The final module, Developing Your Supervision Practice, comprises 3 live sessions that create an opportunity for you to consider your next steps both in terms of developing your practice from a commercial perspective and in identifying what makes you who you are as a coaching supervisor.
This is the formal learning process but it would be to miss one of the most important factors in this programme to ignore the personal learning that we cannot know in advance.
The course is designed to enable you to learn about yourself in multiple ways: your unconscious biases and beliefs that will influence your coaching; your relationship approach within a collaborative learning space and what this might mean for your supervision; your assumptions about the profession itself and what you should expect from coaches; and much more that we cannot and would not want to predict. That is the mystery we look forward to your unlocking as part of the journey!
