Who is this programme for?

Our 8 day Practitioner Level in Health Coaching programme is designed for individuals who want to become “professional health coaches” and organisations that want to develop dedicated roles in health coaching or a specialised health coaching service with coaches that can function at a high level of skill. It's suitable for practitioners from all health, care, community and voluntary sectors. The programme can be delivered as either a stand alone 8 day programme or as an upgrade programme from our four day Accredited Skills in Health Coaching Programme.
