Home / Transform Yourself / Coach Training Academy

Our Coach Training Academy enables individuals to work together to learn the theories and philosophies of coaching as a leadership skill. Coaching can be used as part of your day to day role, or it can become your primary occupation.

We run two different coach training programmes. The choice of programme will depend on how you want to develop your coaching competencies and/or what type of accreditation you want to achieve.

TPC Leadership - COVID-19 Update

Like every person and organisation in the UK we are currently facing an unprecedented challenge in the face of Covid-19. It goes without saying that the health and safety of our clients, participants and employees is at the forefront of everything we are doing. We want to update you on how we will continue to operate over the coming weeks. 

All coach training workshops will be delivered virtually 

Until it is deemed safe to resume in-person delivery we are moving all our coach training workshops online. 

We are already very experienced in delivering and facilitating online programmes so we can confidently transition to a virtual offering safe in the knowledge that both the participant experience and the quality of delivery will not be compromised. Please contact us to discuss our workshops.



Attending the TPC Leadership Coach Practitioner Open Programme has fundamentally shifted my understanding of: myself, the world and my purpose. To attend this course believing it will be a ‘tick box’ exercise to become a coach would be a dangerous misconception of the much more profound journey you can go on- if you choose to attend not only with an open mind but an open heart too. The calibre of the teaching, support, materials and the other participants on the course has been outstanding and I have come away with the most precious gifts of my life, the ability to listen, the capacity to create spaces in which others can think and the new found belief that I am enough just as I am. Thank you to the entire team at TPC Leadership for running these programmes.

Fahrah Gulamhusein - Coach Practitioner Participant

I love practising my new role as a coach, and am in awe of how it compliments, and overlaps, with my work as a documentary filmmaker. Seeing how people learn to trust their resources, and become more confident at being themselves is such a privilege. I am so grateful to TPC Leadership for identifying this talent in me, and for teaching me so much and helping me to formalise it, and to fully become myself!

Ruth Schocken Katz - Coach Practitioner Participant

I loved the coach training programme. It was an intriguing and transforming experience. There was a great amount of personal learning in terms of understanding myself and receiving great feedback. I was inspired by the programme tutors and the great passion for coaching they communicated.

Anonymous - Coach Practitioner Participant

I found the programme to be extremely insightful and it's enabled me to think about who I am as a person and also what real coaching is. I think I had a preconceived notion of what coaching was but this programme has completely transformed my mind. It's been amazing. The facilitators have been exceptional by being personable and human and giving us the right sort of insight and environment to thrive and learn.

Michael Tabirade - Coach Practitioner Participant

After speaking with many providers of coaching training in the UK, I experienced something deeper from my first conversation with TPC Leadership where I was asked about the type of work I do, my type of learning style; an interest in the potential trainee to find out what would best suit me and my professional needs; TPC Leadership provided that and more. The duration of modules is well spaced out covering a variety of models; styles and areas, the trainers for each compliment really well bringing a high level of knowledge, skill and passion with them which transferred in the training room. The venue used is the best I have ever had the opportunity to go to, it allows you to fully focus on your training with everything taken care of, even lunch! I have welcomed the continued support from the team, opportunity to use member’s area on the website. The group supervision and co-supervision have all been useful in reflection and thinking about my journey in coaching.

Thank you to all involved; it has certainly been the most outstanding training experience I have had the pleasure of undertaking to move my career forward.

Our Foundation Coaching Skills programme runs over 3 days, providing core skills and competencies that can be applied in a coaching relationship.

You will receive a certificate of attendance from TPC Leadership UK on completion of the module. This certificate can then be used as a record and can be used for accredited prior learning for our professional coach development programmes.

If you are interested in achieving the EMCC EIA award at Foundation Level you’ll be able to attain this by completing some coaching practice and providing evidence of your learning, for an additional fee. This is our recommendation to ensure you embed your learning.
