The first is that you will need to do a programme that is accredited.
This programme has been accreditedby the main internationally recognised coaching bodies – more than any other UK provider in our sphere – the International Coaching Federation (ICF), European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC) and the Association of Coaching (AC).
