Increasingly demanded by corporations when commissioning coaching services, training in coach-mentoring and supervision is a natural next step for experienced coaches.
Coach-mentoring & supervision services
Receiving support and feedback on your own professional practice is a great way to build experience and confidence. It works well in small groups and 1-1. Coaches bring a range of topics to these confidential sessions: real-live coaching issues; challenges and concerns; ethical and coaching competences.
1-1 Coach mentoring and supervision is available from our Faculty, and we offer open group events year round.

Suitable for experienced coaches
"Having had some poor experiences of supervision in the past and also questioning whether supervision, as opposed to mentoring, was appropriate for coaches, the Forton model of coach supervision and mentoring adds real value to both the coach and the supervisor/mentor."
