Marese Bermingham & Ruairí Ó Ceilleachair will present a case study on Cork Institute of Technology & EDelia Coaching Certificate in Coaching.
The purpose of this innovative programme is to provide participants with the opportunity to learn and engage in practical coaching tools and techniques, particularly, but not exclusively, within the education sector, and to achieve EMCC Global Individual Accreditation, which is embedded into the course content and outcomes, recognising and building on prior learning and experience. The content of the programme consists of a blend of learning activities and is delivered over four modules. These are largely experiential and discussion activities where participants develop their skills, gain theoretical knowledge on coaching tools and approaches, and learn to reflect on their practice and learning.
