Coaching and mentoring
Coaching and mentoring has the power to transform your organisation. It can help you tap into your people’s potential and maximise business performance. Whether you’re looking for coaching and mentoring qualifications, or support with introducing coaching and mentoring to your organisation, at Sheffield Business School, we work side by side to meet your needs.
A leader of the field, we have been running postgraduate programmes in coaching and mentoring for over 14 years. Our team of experts make up one of Europe’s most progressive coaching and mentoring centres. We helped establish the main professional body, the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC). Our postgraduate qualification is accredited by the EMCC at Senior Practitioner level and we are the only university in the UK to offer this.
We’ve helped HR departments, talent managers and executive leaders to drive performance, implement change and improve employee engagement in organisations like Sheffield Insulation Group (SIG, Sheffield’s highest earning company), Chesterfield Borough Council and South Yorkshire Police.
We designed a development programme for SIG’s senior managers, embedding coaching and mentoring into the organisational culture and helping them achieve considerable cost savings.
Drawn from a diverse range of backgrounds, our students are united by an ambition to become capable, confident and professional coaches and mentors. We receive excellent student feedback in terms of overall learning, quality of teaching and engagement. Participants describe the course as intellectually stimulating with a high degree of personal and professional development. If your business could benefit from some new thinking, talk to us about how our students could help.
We offer an eight-month Postgraduate Certificate course, followed by an eight-month Postgraduate Diploma which leads to the Masters (MSc) dissertation stage.
On the Postgraduate Certificate, you’ll develop individual practice and gain accreditation by the EMCC at Senior Practitioner level.
On the Postgraduate Diploma, you’ll move beyond the individual and explore coaching in a wider organisational context. This includes team coaching and scheme design.
Courses designed for you
If you’re looking for a coaching and mentoring programme specially designed for your organisation, we can work with you to meet your training needs. Choose from short day courses, longer-term CPD programmes or bespoke credit-bearing courses that lead to a university qualification. Thanks to our expertise in the Business School, your organisation can combine leadership and management development with coaching and mentoring training.
More help with your business
We can also help with executive coaching, consultancy and creating a coaching and mentoring culture in your organisation. Our coaching and mentoring day gets practitioners and academics together four times a year to talk about practice.
