FAQ - For Group Mentoring
- What are the group-mentoring sessions like?
In these sessions you will focus on understanding and demonstrating the 11 ICF Core competencies at a level you may not have focused on previously in your training. Each session includes discussion on the chosen competencies, followed by coaching practice, with feedback from your mentor/trainer. There's time at the end of each session for general coaching questions.
At the end of this programme you will be confident in applying for your credential, and feel ready to complete your Coach Knowledge Assessment (CKA) multi choice exam with ease. For coaches applying for PCC or MCC you will feel confident in making and choosing appropriate recordings.
What Is ICF?
The International Coach federation (ICF) is the leading global organization for coaches, with over 25,000 international members. It exists to advance the coaching profession by setting high ethical standards, providing independent certification, and building a worldwide network of credentialed coaches. The ICF is the only organization that awards a global credential which is currently held by 15,963 coaches worldwide as at June 2015. The ICF offers 3 levels of credentialing:
ACC Associate Certified Coach
PCC Professional Certified Coach
MCC Master Certified Coach
Each credential requires a specified set of coach-specific training hours and a record of the coaching experience of the coach. Coaching Pacific’s graduates (from the Executive & Organisational Coaching Certificate) can apply for their ACC credential under the ACSTH Route – as they will already have met the 60 hours of coach specific training requirement for ACC. All graduates of our other programmes can count the training hours as part of a credential application under the portfolio route or for the renewal of their existing ICF credentials.
What are the ACC ACSTH Application Requirements?
- 60 hours of coach-specific training (which you can obtain with our EOCC)
- 100 hours of client coaching experience (with at least 8 clients)
- 10 hours of work with a qualified Mentor Coach ( which may include up to 7 group mentoring hours)
- Coach Knowledge Assessment (CKA)
Coaching Pacific Director Linley Rose is a qualified ICF mentor coach and an ICF assessor.
What about Individual Mentoring, either for the whole ten hours required or for the three?
Personalised mentoring packages are available. We will consult with each coach as to what is going to be the most effective number of hours and use of time to fully prepare you to pass your assessment. Just contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘1:1 mentoring enquiry’ as your topic.
