Our Courses

All our courses incorporate an inspiring and stimulating mix of varied, experiential learning and are designed to build a vibrant learning community.

Our Advanced Programme is ideal if you are looking for an in-depth programme that’s both professionally and personally transformative and leads to a valuable qualification. You will learn to work deeply as a psychologically-minded coach, as well as how to integrate a ‘big picture’ systems perspective. It is delivered over one year, is accredited by the Association for Coaching at their highest ’Advanced Diploma’ level and approved by The Institute of Leadership & Management.

If you simply want to gain basic coaching skills to apply in your work and life, the best option is our Foundations Course. You will join the first module of the Advanced Programme taking it as a five-day standalone introduction to coaching.

Our approach

Today’s coaches need to work deeply and with breadth – to move beyond an exclusive focus on personal performance and narrow measures of success. This takes high levels of self-awareness, presence and skill.

At Wise Goose we bring a seriously playful curiosity to the questions of the kind of work coaches are now being asked do and what the field of coaching might become in the future.

Our approach includes the bigger picture – transforming the way we see ourselves and our place in the world, partnering with clients to create a better world for themselves and wider communities – we think of this as creating success with a soul.  With this in mind we undertake voluntary work with the local community and /or environmental organisations and make donations ‘in kind’. This includes: 

  • giving at least one (usually more) free training spaces worth £1,500 and £4,500 to a charity, social enterprise or that can make good use of a coaching style into their teams/organizational culture.
  • on a case-by-case basis, offer bursaries to candidates who cannot pay full fee with preference shown to those who are from underserved groups themselves, including women owned enterprises, or who work with underserved groups, or in areas social justice or sustainability.
  • offering 20% reduction in fees to B Corporations and graduates of MSc Responsibility in Business Practice (University of Bath)  & Sustainability and Responsibility (Ashridge.)
  • Provide ‘pro bono’ or low cost coaching and mentoring to charities where resources permit.

Who it’s for

With Wise Goose you’ll learn how to engage in coaching conversations that dig deep for what is important and meaningful. You’ll learn how to spark deep curiosity, shift conversations from what’s broken to what’s possible. You will participate in a learning journey that our students often describe as personally and professionally  transformational.

We welcome people from a wide range of sectors and backgrounds, a wonderful diversity that creates a rich, dynamic and inspirational learning experience. But whatever their backgrounds they have one thing in common: they have been drawn to coaching because they want to do worthwhile work that makes a difference.
