Coaching is an integral part of CPD and as such we have a bespoke coaching programme which has been developed for RQTs as well as incorporating elements of coaching into the OTP programme. Coaching is a life long process and as such the CPD on offer ranges from developing new coaches to embedding practice and further refining coaching to cater for the needs of all coachees.
