This is a certified Agored Cymru Level 4 course. Participants have the option of taking the route to certification or may use it simply to improve their skill base. Certifying and non-certifying participants can be trained on the same course.

The programme delivers value and legal compliance to the Institution, and at the same time, it develops positive thinking and self-assurance, and helps the participants achieve a greater sense of well-being and personal satisfaction with their coaching work.
