Module Overview

The module aims to develop and enhance the knowledge and skills in coaching and communication. 

The module aims to both broaden and deepen engagement with relevant coaching and mentoring literature and skills development. 

It critically evaluates individual experiences, and use in-depth reflection in order to synthesise and contextualise this into personal practice within the work place. 



On successful completion, you will be able to:

  • Critically review and systematically evaluate the role and contribution of coaching and mentoring to individuals and organisations.
  • Critically review your own ability to perform effectively as a coach/mentor, and engage in peer coaching/mentoring to seek advice on individual performance.
  • Demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of coaching and mentoring theory and models, which inform practice.
  • Critically review your own communication skill, knowledge and understanding in relation to you in your professional context
  • Design an individualised detailed coaching or mentoring intervention for use in practice, (with measurable outcomes), by critically reflecting upon and synthesising coaching and mentoring approaches from different perspectives.
