Free Taster Morning
If you are a business leader or people manager who has enjoyed coaching and developing your teams and you are now looking to do more coaching within your role or on a freelance basis, our coaching course could be the next step for you.
We offer free of charge taster mornings regularly throughout the year to help you make up your mind about whether training as a coach is the right choice for you, which accreditation route is right for you and whether our business and personal coaching course is right for you. Our taster mornings will:
- Answer all your questions about training as a coach with Barefoot
- Demystify all of the different accreditations
- Explore which level of coach training is right for you
- Give you an overview of the coaching industry and how you can work as a coach
- Provide an opportunity to meet other people who are thinking about training as coaches
Honesty, integrity and transparency
We build open and honest relationships, founded on integrity. Our clients come first and we want to say to them in every way we can “you matter”. That means being flexible, understanding, supportive and striving to meet all their needs. Of course we hope that you are interested in training as a coach with us, but we also respect and understand that our course won’t be right for everyone, and not everyone will be right for our course.
Support before, during and after your coach training
We’ve trained over 3000 people on our programmes and have a huge network of alumni who regularly meet, offer support to each other and pass on opportunities for work.
Your relationship with Barefoot continues far beyond the end of the course; we can help you set up and build your own coaching business, offer coaching supervision, provide continuing professional development opportunities and support you in networking and making new contacts.
Professional and academic accreditation
Barefoot was one of the first organisations to run University Accredited Coach Training in the UK and we remain one of the leading providers of accredited coach training in the country. As well as an academic accreditation from the University of Chester our course is one of only 221 coach training programmes in the world to be accredited by the International Coach Federation – the leading professional body for coaching – as an ACTP.
“Barefoot are so clear on what they stand for that, when you stand for the same things, you’re naturally drawn to them. They take time and care in making sure the development you choose to do with them is right for your needs – information from open days, observing a day of the course, conversations with previous Barefooters and conversations with the team. I can’t rate them highly enough.”
“Barefoot’s taster morning was a real decider for me. It enabled me to experience first-hand what it’s like to be coached as well as to coach someone else.”
