The EMCC is the European Mentoring and Coaching Council. It exists to develop, promote and set the expectation of best practice in mentoring and coaching across Europe and beyond, for the benefit of society.


Our programmes are accredited by the EMCC European Quality Award (EQA). This is the benchmark quality standard for mentoring/coaching training programmes – it ensures that successful students meet the research-based competence standards presented in the EMCC Competency Framework.


If you have successfully completed a training programme provided by an EMCC EQA Provider, you do not automatically receive a European Individual Accreditation (EIA) award. You do, however, qualify for a simplified, less costly application process, using the EIA v2 application for EQA certificate holding applicants (assuming you are applying at the same level of your training or lower AND the certificate was received within 2 years prior to the date of your EIA application submission).
