At The Performance Solution® we are passionate about training coaches who can go out into the world and use their coaching skills alongside the codes of ethics and practice of the major professional bodies in our field. Coaching is being pushed to regulate itself and we are fighting the good fight to make sure that coaches trained by TPS are safe, qualified, and know what they’re doing.
As a result we have spent the last few years in and out of meetings with various professional bodies, attending conferences, hosting meetings, helping with research and contributing in any way we can. This is why we are so proud to be able to announce that the long awaited accreditation for our coaching programme has come through from the International Coaching Federation (ICF)!
In order to obtain the prestigious title of Accredited Coach Training Programme we spent a year having all our course materials, rationale, exams and qualifications audited by the ICF and they have decided that we meet the criteria.
At the end of last year we were equally excited to be approved as a recognised provider for the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) and before that we were overjoyed to have our courses recognised by the Association for Coaching.
So what does this meant for our students? Any delegate who successfully completes our coach training programme can apply for personal credentialing through the ICF as an ACTP graduate and will not have to put together the entire portfolio that others do. We’ve done the hard work on that front so the ICF know that our graduates are competent. Anyone who graduates from our course also receives a separate certificate from the ILM and 6 months free membership to the ILM’s online materials. Our certificates also come with recognition from the Association for Coaching and students can apply for credentialing through them as well.
Last but certainly not least, we are currently working on our new Coaching Masters degree and our ACTP also counts as credits towards this, allowing graduates of the training programme to delve into the academia of coaching and its applications.
We are so proud to be setting the gold standard for coach training and we look forward to helping make sure that the coaching profession increases in reliability and validity in the future. We hope to see you on the journey.
