Level 3 Child Coaching Diploma Course Content
The course will contain the following modules:
Level 3 Child Coaching Diploma Module 1: Beginnings
The first module introduces child coaching, its uses and contexts. A presentation and discussion of the psychological development of children (up to the age of 18), and integration of relevant physical aspects will be given.
Level 3 Child Coaching Diploma Module 2: How children learn and respond
In order to effectively communicate with children we need to have an understanding and knowledge of how they learn and assimilate what they hear, feel, see and perceive in their world. This module will discuss these processes and it will aid programme design and effective use of appropriate communication models and techniques.
Level 3 Child Coaching Diploma Module 3: Communication and specialist coaching skills
This module deals with listening and congruence; how children react and respond within different contexts and situations. The module will also explore and discuss some of the specialist coaching skills needed when working with children.
Level 3 Child Coaching Diploma Module 4: Special considerations
This module deals with ethical issues when working with children, such as consent, criminal records documentation, professional codes of conduct and working with vulnerable groups. It will also address issues of coaching responsibilities and how a successful collaborative relationship can be built and maintained with children of all ages.
Level 3 Child Coaching Diploma Module 5: Changes
This looks at some of the reasons that children come for coaching. They may be shy and unable to ‘fit’ in with their peer group; they may need to achieve more in terms of education, sport, etc. The reasons for attending may be complex and even involve family situations such as divorce, separation or loss. All these issues will be examined in this module.
Level 3 Child Coaching Diploma Module 6: Consolidation and processes
This brings the whole process together and looks at it from assessment to closure of the programme. In addition some example documents and templates for communication models will be given.
This Level 3 Child Coaching Diploma course can be used to gain entry to a Level 4 Diploma or higher.
