Level 5 Coaching Professional Apprenticeship

Entry Requirements

Entry requirements are set by an employer, however we would expect them to include at least a Level 3 qualification and GCSEs (with a grade C or above in English and maths), or relevant work experience.

Apprentices without level 2 English and maths will need to achieve this level prior to taking the End-Point Assessment.

What's Involved

Coaching is a way of treating people, a way of thinking and a way of being which is seen as vital to supporting individuals and organisations in increasingly volatile and ever-changing environments. The underlying and ever present purpose of coaching is building the self-belief of others, regardless of the context, to be curious and self-aware, better equipping them to collaborate, innovate, deal with the increasing pace of change and get the best from increasingly diverse environments. Effective coaching is future focussed, releases potential, and enables transition, transformation and change for business improvement.

This apprenticeship is expected to take approximately 14 months before you are able to sit your end point assessment
