The Birth of a Coach is for people with an open heart, who intend to support others in their evolution, and want to learn coaching competences.  The participant will develop a solid foundation to begin a coaching practice in a credible and grounded way. 


The programme provides all formal elements of education required by the ICF and prepares the participant for the ICF, internationally renowned coach credential at the level of Associate Certified Coach (ACC). 


The curriculum includes a transfer of knowledge, development of practical skills in accordance with the 8 Core Coaching Competencies defined by the ICF, as well as creating an approach, orientation and values, which are the qualities of a professional coach and are aligned with the ICF Coach Ethical Code.


Our learning philosophy includes deepening and integrating competences developed during one group module throughout the subsequent modules. The participants practice their coaching skills from the very beginning, drawing from the foundation of acquired knowledge and skills with support of the instructor’s observation and comprehensive feedback. We use proportions of 20% theory, 80% practice exercises, tools, demos, observation and feedback.


During each group module we learn in parallel in four dimensions:


1. Context of coaching - transfer of knowledge, theory, introduction

2. Developing 8 ICF Core Coaching Competences

3. Understanding and deepening elements of Coaching Process

4. Coach’s Personal Development.


The 72 hours of The Birth of a Coach training consists of:


  • 4 group modules taking place every 1-2 months, in total 12 days x 5 hours of synchronous face-to-face group training via Zoom.

  • 3 one-to-one ‘observed coaching sessions’ for each participant (via Zoom)

    • These are participant’s coaching sessions with their clients that are audio recorded and evaluated by the instructor, verbally and in writing, in reference to the 8 ICF Core Coaching Competencies at ICF ACC level.

  • Between the group modules the participants deepen their skills through practice with their clients, and one another.  Before first module each participant needs to agree with 2 persons to become their ‘coach training clients’ for the duration of the Programme.


Full Level 1 The Birth of a Coach is completed with Mentor Coaching and ICF ACC Performance Evaluation.

Mentor Coaching consists of 10 hours required by the ICF:

  • 7 hours of synchronous face-to-face Mentor Coaching sessions in a group of max. 10 participants via Zoom and
