Review the Assessment Criteria and Guidelines

  1. Your Coaching Conversation must be conducted in English, and recorded as an audio file.
  2. Audio files must be submitted as a 20 minute mp3 file.

  3. Ensure you are familiar with the content of the 5 Coaching Essentials, and where concepts are unfamiliar, the accompanying spotlights with associated video examples.

  4. It is unlikely that you will have a single 20 minutes of ‘perfect’ conversation. As a result we anticipate you having to edit the conversation and, although a single audio file, it may include examples from two conversations. The total length of both must still not exceed 20 minutes. No more than 2 different conversations will be accepted.

  5. All 5 standards must be met, these are the 5 essential components of a great coaching conversation.

  6. If successful you will receive notification and a digital badge and we will delete the file unless you give us permission to use it as an example of good practice.

  7. If not successful, you will receive feedback explaining the reasons and we will retain the file until your next submission.

  8. Appeals, if you do not agree with the decision, please submit a transcript of your conversation detailing how each standard has been fully met.
