Career Coaching (Information, Advice and Guidance), Warwick

  1. Tue 08 May


    Thu 10 May

    This three day residential course is suitable for anyone working with students and graduates, who is interested in incorporating coaching skills and strategies into career planning and implementation. Coaching skills are relevant to so many of our activities - from job search and placement support to enterprise advice and to long guidance discussions.

    The learning will focus on key aspects of coaching such as establishing a working alliance, goal setting and effective use of questions. It will also introduce participants to models of practice and coaching tools and techniques, perhaps not so familiar in guidance settings. You will be challenged to consider your own professional practice and how coaching will fit with your current role and activities. We will do this through interactive exercises and case studies, supported by individual reflection, and the course will also involve videoed discussions with students.

    This is not a professional coaching qualification, but is aimed at those wishing to develop coaching skills to complement their current skills set.

    What will you learn?

    By the end of the course, participant should be able to:

    • define career coaching and describe its purpose within career development 
    • describe relevant theories and models of practice 
    • understand the contribution of a coaching approach to an IAG context 
    • develop and practise appropriate coaching skills and techniques 
    • apply and demonstrate a coaching approach to a range of advice and guidance interactions 
    • value the integration of coaching skills with their current professional practice 
    • Feel more confident in the use of coaching skills and strategies

    This three day residential course is delivered by The University of Warwick in collaboration with AGCAS; it is an optional module of the CEIGHE MA/PG Diploma and PG Certificate. CEIGHE registrants are supported by materials and resources from both the AGCAS and The University of Warwick’s websites.

    Here are some comments from previous participants:

    "[Learned] lots. I can't list it all here but the tools and the NLP bits were especially brilliant."

    "I found every part of this course interesting and engaging. The link between theory and practice was very clear and the models and discussions were very relevant to a range of areas of practice."

    "It was obvious the trainers were very experienced and had a passion for the subject."
