The CSA Coaching Supervision Diploma
This rigorous, nine-month programme is for experienced coaches who wish to have a recognised qualification in Coaching Supervision. Since 2005, CSA has trained over 130 Executive and Business coaches and our Accredited graduate coach supervisors are working world-wide. Our approach has a dual focus, personal and professional, as it is based upon our assertion that, “who you are, is how you supervise”.
It was rigorous, academic, theoretical, awareness raising and self-reflective.
The Diploma Course has been accredited by EMCC and awarded Approved Provider status by the ICF; it counts towards a Masters at Kingston University.
Introducing the Full Spectrum Model
What distinguishes this course is that in addition to a thorough training in classic supervision models, students will be trained in CSA’s Full Spectrum Model of Coaching Supervision.
The Full Spectrum Model incorporates Hawkins & Smith’s 7-eyed model of Coaching Supervision together with core teaching and practice on the Use of Self in Supervision, multi-dimensional Presence work which utilizes the seminal ideas of Senge et al (U Theory), work with subtle energies , Buddhist Psychology, and quantum physics – a living, relational perspective. There is also teaching on Coaching Psychology and on Systemic Thinking in Organisations.
This broad range ensures that the course is both challenging and holistic. Personal Development for Coach Supervisors is foundational and attention is paid to bringing mature reflective practitioners to the profession of Coaching Supervision.
It's a wonderful, resource-rich, and well-supported learning environment to build upon and grow your understanding, insight and skills in supervising others
How is the course delivered?
The course consists of three parts and is spread over nine months so that learning is incremental – it is organised as 3×2 days and is a non-residential programme. Students will be supported throughout by a team of 15 experienced trainers and tutors, all of whom are experienced coaches and senior coach supervisors. The key elements of the programme are:
- 3×2 days of training – details below
- 5 pieces of pre-course work
- 6 tutorials
- 9 teleforums
- work with 5 supervisees (5 sessions each throughout the course)
- 8 sessions with an experienced coach supervsior to explore your supervision practice.
- monthly 2-hour sessions in supervision practice triads throughout the course
- submission of Learning Journal (3000 words) and Case Study (4-5000 words)
- reading from course book list
- a cd of relevant articles and learning materials is provided; students and tutors add to this extensive resource for the beginning of each new programme.
There will be tutor, trainer and peer feedback during the course. Final assessment of practice will be on day 5. The 4000-5000 word case study and a summary of student’s Learning Journal are part of the final assessment.
This is a magical, inspiring and profound journey. To describe it as a course in Coaching Supervision would be to grossly understate it. Never have I experienced a course as being so rich and playful. Thank you!
