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.


The dates and details for our coaching session for the 2019 – 2020 academic year are below. If you are interested in attending this training please let us know at
