A superb team of international programme leaders, trainers, tutors, webinar leaders and supervisors supports the CSA Diploma programme – wherever it is delivered. This multi-layered support is one of the distinguishing features of the Diploma, ensuring that each student has input from a number of experienced coach supervisors throughout the programme. They are also exposed to many different ways of working as they develop their own supervisor skills.
Quality control is very important to us here at CSA; each member of the faculty, is not only an experienced, accredited CSA graduate in regular supervision, but each one has also shadowed on at least two further programmes, post graduation, before being selected. All members of faculty attend planning meetings and are mentored by the co-founders of CSA.
We provide the very best learning experiences for our students and the quality of the CSA Diploma in Coaching Supervision depends in no small measure on the exceptional quality, experience and support within the CSA faculty.
