Coaching and Mentoring
University of the West of Scotland
Key Course Facts
The programme is offered online and suitable for a diverse range of participants from across various sector organisations (public, private and voluntary) who may have responsibility for training and development and/or supporting peers and colleagues as part of their own organisational development policies. In offering individuals a reflective and non-threatening environment through which to critique practice when viewed in light of national and international literature on coaching and mentoring and other models of professional development (so as to develop and promote ‘evidence’ informed professional practice), it also aims to promote cross-sector/inter-agency/inter-professional working and the development of core, transferable skills appropriate for post graduate study at SCQF Level 11 (Masters).
