The most important qualification to be successful on a coaching course is a passion for helping others succeed. If you get personal satisfaction in helping others transform their lives or make important career or personal changes then coaching is certainly for you.
Here at Skills24 training we have been helping individuals and organisations make important changes for over 15 years. Some of our students are relatively new to the world of coaching and recognise they need the correct foundations for moving forward as successful and respected coaches. Many of our other students have a life time of experience of managing and motivating teams and individuals and now wish to move into the field of coaching, and put all that experience to good use.
Our students come from a wide and varied set of backgrounds. Teachers, Psychologists, Nurses, HR Professionals, Youth workers and councilors and those with a passionate interest in just helping others.
Here in the UK a coaching culture is rapidly developing and more and more individuals and organisations are recognising the benefits of coaching and how effective coaching can transform businesses and the lives of individuals.

We strongly support the idea of external accreditation and the professionalisation of coaching. The ILM and A.C are leading bodies in the world of coaching and we are justly proud of our accreditations and association with these professional bodies.
