Training For Mentors

Continuous Professional Development

Accreditation for Mentors: PGCert Mentoring & Coaching

The Postgraduate Certificate in Mentoring and Coaching has been developed to address the needs of teachers and other professionals working in a range of educational contexts. It provides a professional route in mentoring and coaching for those who hold, or are seeking to hold, specialist roles in schools and colleges and other educational settings.

As well as enhancing your mentoring and coaching practice, the programme will also support you in developing skills in critical reflection in relation to established and contemporary theories and models of mentoring and coaching. You will explore and experience mutual ways of working through investigating and critiquing contemporary policy, developing a strong academic underpinning to your work. This will enable you to adapt your studies to focus on areas of professional and/or personal interest.

The programme is delivered as blended learning with Saturday conference sessions held at Edge Hill University, Ormskirk campus. Conference days can also be held in central Manchester at St James’ campus, or by arrangement with partner institutions.
