COACHING ACCREDITATION PROGRAM PHASE 4
Coaching Accreditation Program Phase 4: GCI Standard Accreditation is optional but required if you wish to seek accreditation in the GCI coaching system and the rights to use GCI coaching systems and materials in your practice.
Upon completion of this phase, you are eligible to apply for recognition of prior learning with some universities. An additional assignment and readings must be completed to seek recognition of prior learning.
GCI Coach Accreditation involves completion of 6×1 hour phone coaching sessions with a GCI Coach that focus on providing additional individual coaching together with complete exposure to the GCI coaching system.
This option requires:
- Completion of 6 individual coaching sessions with two real clients
- Written reflective practice learning project, including familiarity with current coaching research literature and appropriate referencing
- Coachee to ‘Coach the Coach’ and receive written feedback
- A high level of commitment to building coaching capability and to the practise of coaching in current or future roles
NB: Progression to full accreditation with GCI is not automatic. Participants will need to achieve high skill levels in coaching practice and demonstrate the ability to reflect insightfully about their coaching, developing strategies to move from ‘good to great’ as a coach.
Once GCI Accreditation is achieved, a formal agreement is entered into providing GCI Accredited Coach status for a 3 year period. Further continuing professional development is required to extend Accreditation status beyond the initial 3 year period. This will involve 40 hours of professional development over 3 years. The only required professional development activity during that period is participation in the Advanced Coaching Skills Program: Solution Focus Master Class. Other forms of professional development including coaching supervision, reading, conferences and other workshops and webinars can count towards those 40 hours.
