Written Case Study
Submission of 5,500 words (+10%) written ‘Coaching Case Study’ of coaching work with one recent coaching client. You should use the coaching assessment criteria, your own client case notes and coaching logbook as the basis for this work. This work will be
assessed by two members of the Accreditation Board.
Recording and Transcript
A record of recent coaching work with a different client from the one in your written case study. The ‘Coaching
Skills Assessment (Recorded)’, to include:
i. A single continuous digital recording of 20 minutes (+10%) of live coaching work (an excerpt of a full-length session).
ii. A verbatim written transcript of the recording.
iii. A written commentary on the recorded coaching describing the context; the client; the particular session recorded; what this session demonstrates; and how the learning from Module 1A has affected your practice.
iv. Written feedback from the client
The accreditation process for individual coaches will involve a live coaching practicum session of 20 minutes, the ‘Coaching Skills Assessment (Live)’. An assessment group made up of two
members of the Accreditation Board and two to three colleagues also completing the practicum will observe this coaching session.
All assessments will be made against the Coaching Assessment Criteria and full feedback will be provided at the end of the session.
