A coach works to your agenda. Coaches use focused conversation
and, where appropriate, psychometrics.The Centre for Advanced
Learning and Conferences has a variety of coaches and your coach
will be selected and the techniques tailored to your personal
requirements following an informal, confidential conversation
between you and the coaching service. The work will be intensive,
independent and always confidential.

a colleague in achieving this, what should I do?

We will take your details and arrange a confidential telephone
conversation between you and one of our coaches. Once this
conversation has taken place it will be possible to identify the
‘best fit’ for an agreed number of sessions (or even a one-off)
within the framework outlined above. This initial conversation can
have a number of outcomes– a series of coaching sessions, pointers
towards alternative development options or a decision that the time

About the Course
long will the sessions last?
A confidential coaching session normally lasts for between one
and one and a half hours (60–90 minutes).
Do I need more than one
It is possible to have a one-off session, but it is more usual
to arrange a series of six sessions at intervals of one or two
months. This will depend on your individual need.
much does it cost and who should pay?
A single face-to-face, one and a half hour coaching session
costs £400 plus VAT. This cost is normally borne
by your employer. We can offer a discount for those who wish to
book a series of sessions. If you are unable to receive employer
support for any reason, we are able to negotiate packages of
coaching to meet your budget.
