We are a Global Learning Community

ICA is such a supportive safe space to grow both as a person and as a coach. I have got to know a lot of wonderful people. I am very grateful for this experience.

Our Students Take Their Learning & Connection Beyond The Classroom

You don't just join a school at ICA, you join a supportive and diverse learning community.

One of they things that makes ICA different from other coach training schools is our amazing community of like minded coaches.  A community that has been growing and thriving since 2001. Our coaches live in over 92 different countries around the world, and showcase the portable and global nature of coaching.  Our graduates often share the value of the friendships and networks they make along the way.

A sense of connection is created through a multitude of experiences. Think back to your fondest learning experience. Maybe it didn’t even occur in a formal setting? It probably involved making friends, feeling supported, rapid learning for fun, pleasure or gain. This is a perfect description of ICA. We are a learning community.

As a new student, you link in with a generous and supportive group of people who are also dedicated professional and passionate coaches. You will find people who you really “click with” and then informal learning is lifelong and ongoing. Beyond the Zoom classes and Peer Coaching, there are also our Facebook Groups, LinkedIn Groups, Live Events and Global MeetUps.

Our self-paced and flexibly delivered Zoom Classes are a key part of our delivery. Login and you will find ICA students – seated variously on sofas, office chairs, kitchen tables, train seats – discussing  and practising coaching. Who are they?  A mix of corporate professionals, managers, HR professionals, yoga practitioners, teachers, health professionals,  stay at home parents and everyone in between – all sharing perspectives and learning

Graduation is a big deal for us at ICA

Graduation at ICA is a time for celebration.  It's a chance for our graduates to reflect on their learning, announce their certification, and share their unique coaching identity with the world. They have earned a globally recognised Coach Certification and will use this to set up their own coaching practice, become a corporate coach, or blend coaching with an existing profession.

Graduation is also a time for our team and faculty to acknowledge each students dedication, learning and success.  We know our training is rigorous, and our expectations are high.  But, that's because we need to be sure our students graduate with the confidence and skills need to succeed.

It's truly inspiring to hear our coaches talk with such passion about their future, and share how coaching has changed not just their careers, but their life. It is an honour and privilege to have shared this journey with them.

ICA Graduate, Julia Griffin (Community Coach, UK) talks about how coaching transformed not just her career, but also her life.

With the support of our curriculum and faculty, each student at ICA develops their own unique coaching model, with over 680 unique coaching models already published to our ICA Library. In the ICA yearbooks, our graduates share their niche or coaching application, how they plan to use coaching, and the most memorable moment in their coach training journey.


Our coaches come from over 90 countries and all share one passion - the power of coaching. Find out the pathways our Graduate Coaches have taken and the niches they work in.
