CSA’s ICF Approved Diploma in Coaching Supervision gets underway.

We had a splendid time last week, as 18 delegates arrived to begin a marvellous journey in Coach Supervision Training. You can get a flavour our time together from feed back from one of the delegates:

“The two days in London were the best two days of personal development that I have ever experienced. It is a fantastic privilege to be part of the cohort and to work with you both and your hugely talented team…”

Our thanks go to the CSA Senior Training Team and the tutors present – altogether we co-created a rich training experience.
If you are interested in training with us, dates for 2011 are on the website and we are happy to have a chat with you about what this programme involves.
