What is the CCS Core Skills Course in Career Coaching & Counselling?

Our award-winning unique Career Coach Training is held over five days, spread over two modules, and is accredited by the Association for Coaching. We have trained and licensed over two thousand people to a professional standard as Career Coaches in the UK and globally.

This unique experiential training programme develops your skills and confidence as you practice as coach and coachee.  You will be trained to use our 5-stage framework, moving from managing expectations to decision-making and taking action. Once trained, you will be able to access the CCS toolkit, which comprises over 40 online career based questionnaires and exercises to support your career coaching.

You will also benefit from understanding how to set up and manage a career coaching service,  either internally or as part of a business plan.

Completion of the course will lead to the CCS Licence Certificate on successfully passing a post-Course Test.   Following the course, the AC (Association for Coaching) Accredited Training Award is given after receiving a one hour case discussion with one of the course tutors.

Attendance is required full time over the five days (0900-1730).
