Program Curriculum

Core Curriculum

The core curriculum is grouped into course areas and modules.  For each module there is a downloadable PDF, a live teleclass, and peer discussion via the private community forum. These modules are mapped against ICF Core competencies and will give you the theory, knowledge and tools you need to build your practical expertise.

Niche Development

Every coach at ICA graduates with their own niche, with the opportunities for niching being endless.  Our Niche development labs will help you identify your niche, and then explore it together with other likeminded coaches.

Observed Coaching

By the time you reach Observed Coaching, you are nearing graduation.  It's a chance to showcase your new coaching skills and increase your coaching mastery.  An expert coach (PCC) and member of faculty will provide you with written feedback and observe you as coaching at PCC level.

Mentor Coaching

Mentor Coaching is where you will develop your unique style as a coach.  You will be both a coach and a client, and participate in role plays, round robin questioning and group feedback.  An experienced coach (PCC) and member of faculty will provide one on one feedback to support you to develop your client management and coaching expertise.

Portfolio Creation

The coaching market is saturated with cookie cutter coaches - learning the same old models (GROW model etc.) and coaching with the same old processes. At ICA we help you to create a coaching model that is unique to you.  This is how you will tell the world, and your future clients, who you are as a coach.

Peer Coaching

One of the most important components of coach training is applying theory into practice.  With peer coaching you have the chance to try out your new coaching skills and techniques with your peers, and at the same time, accrue hours towards an ACC or PCC credential. Many graduates continue their peer coaching networks long after they graduate.

Coach Supervision

This is exclusive to the Advanced program. Many professions have a long history of providing such support to their members. Social workers and psychiatrists for example, get regular "Supervision". These are meetings with a more advanced member of their profession where they get to bring up any challenges or problems, talk through personal concerns or worries and just a higher level professional support.

Global Coaches Forum

All ICA coaches belong to our coaches forum, with coaches in over 92 different countries around the world.  Opportunities for local and global friendships and netwo

Learning with ICA allowed me to become the person I always wanted to be, to do the things I always dreamt about and to live a life I love. Making the decision to leave a successful leadership career to become a coach was a very daunting one, but with ICA I felt right at home from the start and felt that for the first time I “fitted”. I would like to thank the amazing team of people at ICA for their encouragement, validation and inspiring support!
