What's included?

This is a hybrid course that makes extensive use of the Virtual Learning Platform (e-learning).
All live lessons are uploaded in the specific cohort area to ensure confidentiality of the work done. Additional material can be found in there for specific study. 

Core Competencies Development

All ICF and EMCC Global Competencies Frameworks are presented in a clear manner and demonstrated by the instructor. The student is requested to be in a position to know these and know what these entail as regards practical application and ethical consideration in real life choices. The Knowledge assessment is based on the Core Competencies Development element along with additional study from a reading list that the Academy supplies the student with. 

Experiential Learning Components

This is, in essence, what is called “controlled practice”. The ELCs are two distinct elements that take place during the live workshops. The Coach Practice Development and the Practice Sessions on Strategies, Techniques and Competence-building through Case Studies. During these components, students are required to apply theory to practice in the live classes and evaluate their performance through reflection. 

Coach Practice Development

The instructor presents theory or strategies by demonstrating these live to expand on the theory already presented. The learners are asked to observe and attempt a hand at illustrating their skills in real time under the guidance of their instructor.


Knowledge Assessment is a key element of the course. Students are expected to read books and articles to support their knowledge acquisition. Learning logs and other reflective tasks are required to be submitted through the VLP (Virtual Learning Platform).

Strategies & Techniques

The curriculum determines the competencies and techniques that they are expected to try their hand at as it is of utmost importance to experience the initial pressure of coaching others effectively in a safe and controlled environment, such as the classroom.

Buddy Coaching

From Module 2 onwards students are asked to coach each other on real-life issues in a supportive and confidential environment. The students have the opportunity to enhance their experiential learning both as an enhancement coach and as a client following the ELCs.

Your two modules | Evidence-based material

Introduction to Talent Enhancement
Talent enhancement is a concept our Academy supports in two ways: first by enhancing the talents and skills we, as individuals and students have, and second as enhancement agents to others. In this capacity we start our agent (coach) training with an understanding of what exactly is required of us as students and future or current professionals and what it is we are expected to do during sessions with our clients. Both units of this module focus on how the practice of coaching is laid out according to the major coaching bodies that provide accreditations and the respective credentials.

Topics such as a definition of coaching, reflection, supervision, mentor coaching, codes of ethics are explained while students have the opportunity to practise on the rules of engagement and reflecting. Supervision practices are role-played so that students can use this knowledge as a reference point in future. Students are introduced to basic coaching models like the Impact Cycle while the Transtheoretical Model of Change sets the right foundation for understanding how humans change. The role of neuroscience in coaching is a key learning experience.


Unit 1 - Introduction, processes, definitions & competencies
Unit 2 - The nature of change, personal competencies & Codes of Ethics 
Unit 3 - Neuroscience and the brain & Rules of Engagement
Unit 4 - Transtheoretical model of Change & The Impact Cycle
Applying Talent Enhancement
Becoming enhancement agents does not happen overnight. Just as change in our clients cannot happen over a short period of time. But how can change be effected? And what kind of change? Where does an agent begin?

Core competencies and their value as tools are defined while students are expected to study neuropsychology through the example of Ayrton Senna and other Formula 1 drivers. The Socratic Method is broken down into Maieutics and Dialectics to help form the right questions for our clients.

The IMPACT cycle and the Defining Your Role Strategy are practised and students are asked to establish which is truer to their abilities. Reflection is effected with the understanding of values, principles, self-belief and self-efficacy for the student as an individual. All these elements are also analysed as tools in the hands of an enhancement agent.


Unit 5 - Ayrton Senna & coaching, belief systems and efficacy
Unit 6 - Self regulation & personal development, Coaching skills & tools
Unit 7 - Coaching strategies & skills
Unit 8 - Coaching strategies & techniques
