Introduction to Supporting People (Online Classroom)

This two-part online classroom has been developed for anyone who wants to support coaches, at any levels of coaching, in any environment. You will be provided with the skills and training needed, via on-course support and accompanying resources, to enable you to better support coaches

Our insight shows that in 2019 there were an estimated 900,000 people supporting coaches in coach developer, mentor, educator, or quality assessment roles.

We also understand that many of those who are supporting coaches would like to have more support and training themselves, to enable them to be more confident and skilful.

This online classroom is spread over 2 x two-hour sessions taking place on the same day, with a break in the middle for lunch. Supporting content will comprise of a selection of bite-size videos, podcasts and short articles. 

You will explore:

  • what supporting coaches is (and is not)
  • the different support roles
  • some of the knowledge, behaviours, and skills required to support coaches
  • strategies for effective reflective practice
  • how you can share, question, listen, and have reflective discussions
  • your environment and relationships
  • some practical tools to use to get started.

Upon registering for this workshop, each learner will be provided with access to a series of digital resources. This will comprise of videos, podcasts and articles to introduce basic concepts covered in the sessions, prompt reflection and encourage practice.

The resources will be listed on the learner’s personal learner dashboard.

You can access the online classroom through your mobile phone, tablet, PC or laptop. For the best experience, we recommend using a desktop PC.

You will need the following equipment:

  • Headset or a device with speakers
  • Device with a microphone
  • Ability to connect directly into your router (wifi access may drop out).

More information will be provided when you register.

We will be in touch to:

  1. Confirm your booking
  2. Send you a link to your session
  3. Tell you your certificate is ready to view on your dashboard (after your session).

Each facilitated online session is spread over 2 x two-hour sessions, with a lunch break in between.

You are part of a small group so you will have a chance to discuss points and ask questions – as if you are in a face-to-face workshop, only you get to sit in your own chair and drink a real cuppa in your own mug and not something brown from a vending machine!
