  • learning is a superpower!learning is a superpower!Jun 03, 2015 learning is a superpower: being able to see over the horizon. Those motivational speakers are right: You are capable of amazing things. You wouldn't ..
( Robyn Piper, 17/01/2019 ) Q:

Hello is this qualification recognized and accredited by the ICF, please? Also do you do a masters? as i have done a degree and now looking to go onto a master qualification. Many thanks

( 18/01/2019 ) A:

Hello Robyn,

Thank you for your question.

Our courses are unregulated and offer a different type of learning experience. They have been developed over many years by professionals in their field, who have committed their time and business expertise, to help learners acquire the right business skills. Offering unregulated courses, also enables us to update our courses to reflect new modes of thinking. Regulated courses are unable to react so quickly.

You can elect to have your Business Coaching Certificate endorsed and issues by TQUK, an Ofqual Approved Awarding Organisation. This means that any employer or university will be able to check the awarding body's status and see that they are recognised.

We cannot guarantee that you will be able to use the qualification to get onto a Master's program, but previous students have been able to use qualifications in other subjects to do so . It depends on the entrance criteria of the university concerned, plus your other qualifications and experience and you should check first, before enrolling for a course with us.

We believe that we achieve the correct balance between your qualification being accredited and providing you with the in-depth learning in your chosen discipline, that will empower you to succeed. This is because in the real world, the person who can demonstrate that they have the level of knowledge and transferable skills necessary, will often be more successful than the one who might be endorsed as meeting minimum standards, but who in fact has only received a superficial understanding of the subject.

I hope that this answers your question.

Best regards


( Jeremy, 01/03/2018 ) Q:

Hi, I have a couple of questions about your Business Coaching course BBS304 CLD, please: 1. What is the level of the certificate attached to this course? 2. Does the correspondence/paper version (at £35.00 extra) also include access to the course via the online learning system? Many thanks.

( 02/03/2018 ) A:

Hello Jeremy,

Thank you for your questions.

The course has been independently assessed as being at level 4 (A levels are level 3.) Everyone gets online access to their course and the USB and Correspondence options are an optional extra.

Please don't forget that if you would like your qualification issued by a recognised organisation listed on the Ofqual Register, you will need to select study option A when enrolling.

I hope that this is helpful.

Best regards

Business coaching usually involves working with the individual on THEIR problems, so every client will receive a different form of business coaching, individualised to their needs. So a business coach may work with a business person in one of two ways:  

1. To help them as an individual perform better

  •    how they respond to staff
  •    their work life balance
  •    their organisational structure
  •    delegation
  •    staff training
  •    motivating staff
  •    better management skills
  •    time management

2. To help their business perform better

  •    looking at ideas for the structuring of the business
  •    employment of staff
  •    time management with staff

In summary business coaching -

  •     is a one to one service for an individual business person, aimed at improving the success of that individual or their business
  •     focuses on the important factors and helps the individual to focus on their goals and to ACT on those goals.
  •     helps individuals grow their business, give support and also improve their overall life hopefully.
  •     provides skills and knowledge. The business coach will also share with the business person different tools and skills to use in their business and personal life for the short and long term success.

Don’t be confused here. A business coach is not the same as a business consultant, they are not there to help the business person to set up a new rota or procedure for employing people, but they are there to look at issues that could be affecting how well the business is running and find ways to help the business person to change that.
Business coaching can be confused with other interventions, such as counselling, life coaching, consultancy and training. It is not the same though.
