Internal Coaching Network
The network comprises of Coaches from a wide range of academic and professional services roles across the University, a diversity that brings valuable perspectives and understanding to the coaching role. They take on coaching assignments in addition to their main job roles and responsibilities and, unlike Mentors, do not need to have expertise in the work or discipline area of their Coachee. They will not be matched with a Coachee in the same department or anyone with whom they have a close working/personal relationship.
All Coaches have undertaken a rigorous training programme leading to Level 5 ‘Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring’ from the Institute of Leadership and Management or equivalent. They receive supervision from an external supervisor and take part in continuing professional development events. They agree to adhere by the European Mentoring and Coaching Council's Code of Ethics.
The service of internal Coaches is free.
We maintain a register of approved Executive Coaches and provide a brokerage service to help individuals source the most suitable external Coach. The costs of the coach are paid by the Department or Coachee and we assume that manager's permission has been gained, as meetings usually (but not always) take place during working hours. For information about the range of fees, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
