MA in Applied Coaching

Innochan Solutions is collaborating  with The Performance Solution and the University of Derby Corporate to bring the MA in Applied Coaching to Ireland. 

The purpose of this programme is to provide students with the cognitive, critical and intellectual skills to become reflective coaching practitioners and to facilitate self-learning and development based on the work-based learning experiences offered by the Personal Development Plan, the practical assessments, logging of coaching hours and portfolio development within this award.

A specific aim of this programme is to provide a course of study that enables professional accreditation from the International Coach Federation. Ensuring that students are eligible for professional certified coach membership of the ICF is important if they are to meet the needs of the prospective employers and/or clients, especially those whose quality assurance processes require internationally professionally qualified and certificated coaches. It is a vital underpinning for the pan-European self-regulation of coaches which came into effect in September 2012.

This programme aims to provide students with the ability to develop a wide range of skills and competencies that will prepare them for a variety of career opportunities, including professional executive coaching in Ireland, and internationally. It will also provide a route for return to study and act as a foundation for those wishing to pursue a Coaching related Doctorate.

With this MA programme, not only will you finish the course with either a Post Graduate Certificate, Post Graduate Diploma or Masters Degree in Applied Coaching from the University of Derby, you will also earn Coaching and NLP qualifications through your studies along the way.

Registration Deadline dates – February 28th annually, (Venue TBC around Ireland).
