3-Tier Coaching Accreditation Programme

Now you know our mission and understand our PURE coaching approach, we’re delighted to share these details on our unique 3-Tier Coaching Accreditation Programme.

 

The programme has been designed by education professionals, for educational professionals. We know time and money are limited. We know energy and initiatives have to be carefully managed. We know there is often an overwhelming demand for your attention.

 

We also know people want to work within an organisation which values them as individuals, which gives them a voice, shines a light on their strengths, nurtures their growth and supports them with challenges

Our 3-Tier Coaching Accreditation Programme takes account of all of this. It works with you, your limitations and your aspirations, to create an experience of work which is happy, health and high-performing.

Designed to be low-cost and self-sustaining, this approach has the benefits to your school at its heart. The programme provides a systematic and structured way for leaders to grow as coaches, deepening their understanding and professional competence over time. Our ‘accreditation only’ pricing options encourage participants to bring colleagues through the lower tiers themselves, with the ongoing support of their supervising coach. While other training programmes input-and-go, we stay with you to embed this vital work into the fabric of your school culture. If you’d like a conversation to find out more, please email info@leadershipedge.org.uk
