Continuing Professional Development

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a continuing learning process for coaches, which enables you to meet the needs of your clients by delivering high quality coaching – whilst also maintaining, expanding and fulfilling your own potential.
In order to retain your graduate status as a Professional Human Potential Coach you will be required to achieve a minimum of 30 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) each year commencing 1st January 2013. The year finishes on 31st December 2013. One CPD credit equals one hour of educational activity. Within the credit minimum of 30 total credits, 15 credits must be “external” and the remaining 15 relating to “personal” activities

External Activities

This includes mentoring (minimum of 6 credits / year), lectures, workshops, retreats, distance learning programmes, teaching, published article (8 credits), published book (8 credits) and assisting as a volunteer on the Human Potential Coach Training course (maximum 8 credits).

Personal activities

This includes reading books, journals and personal development practices.
You will be required to keep a CPD diary which will record all CPD events and practices. This formally commences on January 1st 2013, with the year ending on the 31st December 2013. You should then submit your diary by e-mail to me by the 1st February 2014
A commitment to ongoing CPD and personal and professional growth is required in order to retain your annually renewable status as a Human Potential Coach.

Coaching Supervision

The process of supervision allows you to reflect on your work with myself, Dr Mark Atkinson and to receive support and guidance as needed. These sessions provide an opportunity to review your coaching activities and to reflect upon any issues that emerge. This may involve discussion of particular cases. As a minimum guideline you should be having a one-hour supervisory session for every ten of your coaching hours. This starts from 1st January 2013 onwards. A one-hour coaching supervision session costs 80 GBP.
