How the IAP Works 

  1. The IAP provides a menu of 60-credit diploma options to meet individual preferences and provide breadth in learning.
  2. The number of diplomas a learner chooses to study can vary depending on their ability and career aspirations.
  3. The professional learning in each diploma is related to the modern business world.
  4. Assessment is undertaken internally by the college or school and this is done through the completion of assignments set for each diploma.
  5. The diplomas incorporate Study Skills which are needed to support progression to higher level learning and are valued by employers.

Study Skills Integral to IAP Qualifications 

All of the qualifications in the IAP suite develop study skills to prepare learners for progression to Higher Education, a level 4 apprenticeship, to support lifelong learning and/or enable learners to improve their effectiveness in the workplace.  Examples include planning, oral and written communication skills, organising and time management; gathering information, note taking and summarising; and the application of IT skills.

The aim of our coaching and mentoring qualification suite is to develop knowledge, understanding and skill in coaching and mentoring, so these techniques can be used effectively in and across organisations operating in the fields of business and education/training – and more widely such as within public sector or not-for-profit organisations.  The following key points refer:

  • Delivered through blended or distance learning, the qualification will establish the connection between coaching, mentoring and the achievement of personal and organisational goals.
  • Two pathways are offered for learners with the appropriate levels of experience and maturity to take on the roles of coach and/or mentor, either working with people at different levels in business / public and third sector organisations or with those providing education and/or training.
  • Both pathways will facilitate embedding of improved practice leading to higher levels of personal development from those being coached or mentored and subsequently higher achievement of organisational goals and institutional success.
  • The qualification can be offered by centres in its own right or be used in their staff development programmes for those working with learners taking other ATHE qualifications such as the Business and Management suite. This is particularly important given the increased use of online and distance learning and the change in practice this requires.
  • Coaching and mentoring are also an integral part of the Level 3 Certificate in Entrepreneurship and the suite of Teaching qualifications.
  • The four-unit structure in each pathway will provide the opportunity to apply the learning in a practical context, with observation of actual coaching and/or mentoring practice which can be done remotely or face to face.
