“As I progress through my career, coaching has become more prominent in the roles I have undertaken and this programme is a great platform for my ongoing professional development. On a personal level, executive coaching is an area I intend to move into on a full-time basis at some stage in my career, so this course is proving invaluable.
“The unique combination of an academic and commercial programme. I had explored other professional coaching courses beforehand but found the structure and content of this course really exciting. I also found it very appealing to have the opportunity to obtain both an academic qualification and professional accreditation at the end of the programme.
“I was immensely impressed by the building and its facilities, in addition to the great offering and relevance of courses. The location and campus facilities are excellent. In addition, I met Lucy Mullins, Programme Leader for the course and her enthusiasm and passion for the programme was infectious.
“So far, I’m thoroughly enjoying the blended learning approach and the opportunity to learn from the experiences and insights of brilliant course directors and other passionate and highly engaged course colleagues. I remain excited by the course content, delivery style and ongoing availability of support. Studying at Leicester Castle Business School is also a great opportunity in terms of the location and building itself. It is the best learning environment I have experienced to date.
“There has been a great level of helpful support right the way through from pre-registration, on-boarding, during-course attendance and post-course. During the course there is ample opportunity for discussions, clarification or raising any concerns. In addition, we as a group of course colleagues have developed a great support network amongst ourselves.”
