Coaching and Mentoring

ATHE Level 6 Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring

ATHE Level 6 Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring

The aim of this qualification 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.  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 mentor, either working with people at different levels in business organisations or with those providing education and training. Both will facilitate embedding of improved practice leading to higher levels of personal development from those being coached or mentored and subsequently higher achievement of business goals and institutional success.

The qualification can stand alone or may be offered by centres to support learning in other ATHE qualifications such as Business & Management, the Level 3 Certificate in Entrepreneurship, or suite of Teaching qualifications within which it plays an integral role.  The four-unit structure will provide the opportunity to apply the learning, with observation of actual practice in coaching and/or mentoring which can be done remotely or face to face.
