Life Coaching Colleges

Life coaching colleges are another option if you are seeking an industry recognised qualification before going on to practise as a coach.
But selecting the correct programme can be a difficult decision as there is a large and varied amount of choice on the market –some colleges offer home study, online coaching courses, hybrids of distance learning and classroom study or fulltime face-to-face lecture hall  attendance. All of which must present a slightly confusing picture for people choosing from this array of providers and accrediting bodies.

So it is important that Life coaching colleges offer the highest standards for both coach practitioners and training course providers and operate with the highest ethical standards giving peace of mind to those people looking to hire a coach or invest in their own coach training for the first time.
But some students will already have considerable experience of life coaching and just wish to study in order to be certificated by any means so there are different markets to satisfy.

There are life coaching colleges which have come on the market recently which offer inexpensive, self-contained, self-study diplomas and certificates in life coaching to satisfy that market.
But there are so many training courses accredited in different ways so an element of caution is required even when the term ‘college’ appears in the marketing material as the above method of distance learning is not suitable for every type of learner and that is one reason that our PSG Diploma in Life coaching was structured in such a way as to incorporate all the best elements of each type of study.
Yes, the diploma covers the necessary theoretical aspects of coach education but also recognises that theory alone cannot produce a first class coach.

As Life Coaching is essentially a practical activity – it follows that a balanced course of training must be grounded in sound practical experience with role play as an essential component.
This is why PSG concentrate on the practice/feedback model of coach development with respect to work-based assignments with proper regard for evidence requirements.
The PSG course will develop your own coaching strengths and show you how this can be implemented into your training and then furthermore into the actuality of  practicing as a coach.

We have ensured the syllabus topics are carefully mapped to international coaching occupational standards – standards which have been carefully developed in consultation with employers and accreditation bodies – thereby ensuring the Diploma qualification is suited to the requirements of the business world as well as servicing the needs of the individual client private market.
