Does the Dip in Coaching and Mentoring qualify you
to set up as a Life coach?
Would your course be equivalent to a EDEXEL Level 3 in Life Coaching (BTEC), that is offered with
Newcastle College,theirs is also a Distance Learning Course.
Thank You, Barbara

This course will provide the student with the knowledge and understanding required to appreciate the skills and techniques required for effective coaching and mentoring. The term "Life Coach" would need to be examined as this represents a more specific area of coaching and the student would be advised to seek a working definition with which most people would agree. There may be courses available which suggest that they tackle the specific topic of a "Life Coach."
Whether any course would formally "qualify" a person as a "Life Coach" is highly debateable as Education and Learning need to support the necessary personal attributes to be successful in this area.
The level of our course is level 8 - second year degree level. Each of the 2 modules are awarded 20 points (200 hours study/asessment for each module) on completion. To see how this relates to the course at Newcastle College you may wish to look at www.scqf.org.uk
