Accreditation is your internationally recognised and approved standard/level of accomplishment which demonstrates your training, experience and ability/competence as a coach or mentor.
Why have the IIC&M introduced Professional Coaches or Mentors level?
The IIC&M have long recognised that CPD forms part of the accreditation process. However, it also recognised that in developing skills and knowledge for accreditation, CPD was almost an inevitable aspect. Therefore, how best to identify those coaches and mentors who, after accreditation, continued to develop their competence? The answer was the introduction of the ‘Professional’
What is the CPD programme?
The IIC&M CPD Programme is designed to support the continuous development of knowledge and experience as required of a professional coach or mentor, from the moment they become accredited with us. To demonstrate their continuing professional development and gain their Professional Coach or Mentor status, the IIC&M requires all accredited coaches and/or mentors to complete a minimum amount of personal development in each CPD year. The amount of personal development required depends upon the level of ‘Professional’
What is the benefit of achieving a ‘Professional’
Achieving the ‘Professional’
CPD allows individuals to demonstrate their professional commitment to their own career. It enhances their profile and provides them with the opportunity to add additional value for their client base.
