As a charity we are always looking for ways to become self-sustainable, so we are attempting to develop a social enterprise model.  Our courses and coaching on offer here are currently on a donation basis. Donations are used to help us provide our core charitable service, to support young people at risk of educational and social disengagement.

You support us, we support you, together we support young people.

Learn to Coach

We offer a practical introductory core programme, that will enable you to carry out basic coaching and mentoring within your organisation. The course content will introduce you to coaching and mentoring, and will give core skills.

This course will provide you with communication skills and the ability to build colloborative relationships using the practical coaching skills, we cover:

  • Listening
  • Questioning
  • Clarifying, reflecting
  • Use of a Structured Conversation
  • Coaching Practice

These coaching skills are designed to increase self-awareness. The course will provide opportunities to put into practise the skills you learn, you will coach and be coached. Our course will help you move forward in clarifying your own goals and aspirations.

We colloborate with MOE and deliver elements of the course with permission.

Be Coached

Our team can offer one-to-one personal development coaching. Personal development coaching focuses on increasing your self-awareness, looking at your life goals, your personal challenges and aspirations. In personal development coaching the coach will;

  • Listen, and support you to help you to get to your own solution.
  • Raise self-awareness around your current thoughts and life
  • Create your preferred future
  • Identify support structures to help you through difficult decisions.
  • Encourage you to follow your personal plan.
  • Help you to reach your personal growth goals.

Personal development coaching can cover a range of issues and concerns related to personal growth. As part of this we offer “The Walking Coach”– a time together spent outdoors, taking in the scenery, fresh air, and working on the issues brought to the coach. The Walking Coach is rooted in the idea of nature as therapy. According to an increasing body of thought, being out in nature increases our sense of wellbeing. Why not “walk and talk” with us.

We also offer the YB12 coaching programme
