MOE Coach Training Course

23rd April - 28th May 2021 (FULL)

Become a coach and make a difference in your community

We believe in reinforcing people’s dreams – we actively help to make it happen. We know through personal and professional experience that it is vital in life to build a level of self-awareness, confidence, resilience and optimism.

More than this, it is important to back yourself to achieve your ambitions. Knowing how to communicate well with people is an essential skill, both at work and in our personal lives. In today’s world, it is often who you know rather than what you know which opens doors and leads to new opportunities, so learning to build instant rapport and trust is indispensable.

About the course and MOE 

This online course will provide you with enhanced communication skills and the ability to build and enhance relationships using the practical coaching skills including:

  • Listening
  • Questioning
  • Clarifying, reflecting
  • GROW coaching frame work
  • Self-limiting beliefs
  • Coaching Supervision
  • Coaching Practice

These coaching skills are based on the principle of self-directed learning. By developing skills to encourage this approach, you will learn how to ask the type of questions which direct people’s focus inward to find the solutions enabling them to reach their full potential. This course will provide ample opportunities to put into practise the skills you will learn, to be coached and to develop the confidence to support other people in moving forward.

Our coaching programme also helps you to:

  • Identify your purpose.
  • Clarify your personal values and what energises you.
  • Learn practical coaching skills and the opportunities to firmly embed them by the end of the course.
  • Understand what it means to be a purposeful coach and leader.
  • Take charge and control of your life and professional career.
  • Join a community that aids you in achieving your ambitions.
  • Clarify the life that you would love to lead – your lifelessordinary.

Professional Credibility

The MOE Certified Coach Training Course is recognised by the Association for Coaching.


Thanks to a generous association with Culture at Work, our corporate training partner, and our coach training team of MOE graduates, we are able to offer this opportunity to suitable enthusiastic candidates at substantially reduced rates, with some full scholarships also available. This makes it accessible to all who have a genuine interest in becoming a qualified MOE Coach (the typical cost to organisations for this coaching training course would otherwise be £2500.00). All donations go to the MOE Foundation for reinvestment into young people’s lives.

Train the Trainer Programme

As part of our reinvestment we provide an opportunity to join our Train the Trainer programme for those who show particular aptitude for coaching and with an ability to present and teach. Participants can further study the skills needed to present and deliver this material to new participants. Every participant, regardless of teaching experience, will be considered, (although it is ESSENTIAL that you fully complete the course as a participant first). Speak to one of the trainers on your course if you are interested, or you may well be approached by a trainer and invited to join TtT  after your course – your trainers may well spot talents you weren’t aware you had.
