Over the past three decades, the coaching industry has grown enormously, attracting professionals from different backgrounds. As a result, on top of the professional bodies competencies frameworks and codes of ethics, it has become essential to maintain, develop and secure good practice. However, as suggested by EMCC Global and Henley Business School executive report entitled The state of play in European Coaching and Mentoring (Passmore & Brown, 2017), only a limited number of coaches seem to be engaged in formal supervision.
Supervision is a central part of coaching training for the MSc in Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology at the University of East London. In this round table, we will discuss the role, opportunities and challenges of coaching supervision. We will also present the new PgCert in Coaching Psychology Supervision that will start running in January 2021 at UEL. A brief presentation will be followed by a facilitated discussion, as we would like to invite participants to consider different approaches and options to incorporate coaching supervision as an essential component of coaching training and practice.
