Start the Journey
Your FOUNDATION course in Coaching is designed to give you a grounding in core knowldege and will take you about 35 hours spread over a month or so. If you are hooked on the exciting world of coaching, you will want to upgrade to the INTERMEDIATE level directly and we will give you a special offer price for that!
Your INTERMEDIATE Course in Life Coaching (or Executive Coaching) is a 4x unit ‘learning journey’. Each Unit is completed and sent to the marker from your desktop on our site. You go straight to the next Unit. Learning involves practical work so you gain confidence in using your new skills. You’ll spend about 190 hours in mixed activity learning over 5-8 months gaining confidence as you go.
Our friendly ‘Online Community’ gives advice (with professionals on the group!) and we provide other support – including webinars and free video tutorials that support your learning through all qualification courses.
Foundation courses can be studies working alone if you choose. All level 3-and-above qualification coaching courses involve you learning with the people around you – people to coach and who will be doing some simple coaching of you – so you get to learn and have fun from the receiving end of coaching too! And the online community is going to connect you with people to work and play with! Because our courses are Unitized. You can add from FOUNDATION or from INTERMEDIATE to even more advanced courses. And if you are wanting to develop or start a coaching business, our courses, webinars and master-mind groups will take your coaching skills to the market.
The flexible-learning methodology for coaching was proven by Prof. Angus McLeod, PhD for Newcastle College (NC); NC used this format (2004-2010) to train many thousands of coaching students using his designs. You can achieve that with AMACS using updated coaching technology, also led by Angus McLeod!
We are an approved centre for training and offer certification to standards that count nationally – for your confidence and your CPD records. Certificates for these courses are issued by the West Midlands Region office. Our Dean of Training Standards ensures consistency and quality for you.
At the moment, our most demanding courses are the 6xUnit ‘Advanced’ courses. For this course there is an additional requirement including 2 days of training room learning (only UK-based at present, sorry) with your fellow students – this will add to your costs if you decide to go that far with us – we publish all our prices in advance – there are no hidden costs anywhere – come and join us now.
Can We Save you Over £1,000 pounds, We Can!
When offered one or two ‘free’ days from aggressive ‘trainers’ offering you expertise in a few hours, you know that pay day comes later for them! If the sales-patter sounds like a rubbish, it probably is! The actual fees of such ‘trainings’ can vary between about £2,400 and £6,500. You can test OUR courses for just £295 and no AMA Coaching School course, even with two days training room work, could cost you over £1100! So you can save well over a thousand pounds! Our National Open College Network Centre Status (No. 60119) and External Endorsement of ALL our courses, give value and quality. The School is typically a cheaper option and not a ‘cheap’ option! And remember that 20,000 learners have enrolled on Angus McLeod’s flexible learning courses so far!
We charge you less by not offering ‘free introductory sales events’ that subscribers will pay for later. We reduce overheads, working with you by distance/flexible learning and by not being greedy! With the £1,000-5,000 pounds you save, you could choose to try a number of face-to-face days with us (or other providers) AND STILL have money left over for a holiday!
Why you SHOULD NOT train in coaching!!
We want you to feel confident that you made the right decision. We provide self-assessments for you to check out whether training is right for you. Your own assessment will give you confidence to enroll or to be sure that a coaching career is not for you. We provide you with example course content (other examples under ‘courses‘). And we also give examples of the type of course work you will be doing and examples of student submissions too (other examples under ‘certification‘).
