How do I know a formal coaching qualification is right for me?Diadem Qualified2021-01-29T10:45:16+00:00
You have a genuine interest in coaching and mentoring others; you have the time and self-discipline to commit to the self-study required for assignments and you like to have a formal qualification at the end of a training programme. More detail on time and commitment can be found in our downloadable course brochures.
Are there any prerequisites for attending these qualifications?Diadem Qualified2021-02-02T10:53:20+00:00
There are no formal qualifications required to join this programme but it is useful if you have a basic understanding of the fundamentals of coaching and mentoring and are able to find opportunities to apply the learnings in the workplace.
What assignments and written work do I need to be aware of?Cel Solanki2021-01-29T11:00:41+00:00
We are only currently offering Level 5 Coaching and Mentoring Certificate and Diploma qualifications. However, we may open up more qualifications in the future for the Level 3 and 5 Leadership and Management and Level 3 Coaching and Mentoring in due course and any developments will be published on this website.
Can I upgrade from a Certificate to a Diploma at a later date?Cel Solanki2020-12-18T17:14:43+00:00
Yes, you can attend the programme without doing the assignments, however this means you will not have a formal qualification at the end of the programme. Please contact us to discuss this option further.
What style of training can I expect?Cel Solanki2020-12-18T17:10:29+00:00
The workshops and group / 1-2-1 sessions are highly interactive, using facilitated discussion, presentations, exercises, coaching practice and feedback. The workshops promote reflection and improvement and encourage delegates to find opportunities to apply the learning in the workplace.
What group sizes can I expect for the training?Cel Solanki2020-12-18T17:09:27+00:00
All workshop attendance and assignments are mandatory to achieve the qualification. If there are exceptional circumstances meaning you cannot attend a live training session, we will work with you to find a way of catching up.

In order to pass the qualification you will need to have completed and passed all assignments including the coaching practice hours (18 hours for Certificate and 54 hours for Diploma).
I’m interested in putting through a cohort of managers within my business – is this possible?Cel Solanki2020-12-18T17:05:28+00:00

Can this be funded through our company’s Apprenticeship levy?Cel Solanki2020-12-18T16:57:12+00:00
No, this qualification can’t be funding through the levy as Diadem are not on the RoATP (Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers). We will continue to review our position on this and publish any changes on this website.
