Understanding Coaching Practice


This module aims to further develop the student's foundational coaching knowledge (introduced in coaching science/education 1) and will focus on a variety of skills such as their self awareness and understanding of their own values, particularly as they relate to the context in which they coach. This module will therefore seek to develop the student's philosophy as a coach.
