    “What I have learned so far through Foundation is that as a language professional I was a bit too focused on what content I should share with the learner and not so attentive to their real needs.”

    “4 ways this course has impacted on my class communication:

    1. I now know better how to ask questions

    2. I know that learners are the centre of the learning process

    3. I share responsibilities with the learner

    4. I try not to provide solutions.”

    “The program has made me think in more depth about pitching and personal branding in my own business. I have made an attempt to create a list of results/outcomes I am providing to my clients and re-considered the values I am bringing to their table.”


    An exciting new online, synchronous training for coaches who want to deepen and widen their coaching competencies this autumn.
