The Systemic Team Coaching Master Practitioner Diploma (STC MPD) has been developed through a partnership between the Academy of Executive Coaching (AoEC) and Renewal Associates. The overall responsibility for the Diploma lies with the AoEC.
The Master Practitioner Diploma is a stand–alone programme of development for experienced executive coaches and consultants who wish to strengthen and deepen their team coaching practice.
On successful completion of this programme, you will be awarded the Systemic Team Coaching Master Practitioner Diploma.

How you learn

The programme runs over 14 days during a 14-18 month period and comprises two and three day modules which are held approximately 12 weeks apart to maintain momentum. This time frame includes completing the Systemic Team Coaching ® Certificate programme which also doubles as the first module of the fuller diploma programme.
You will explore and discuss the practice of systemic team coaching and the research and theory which underpins it.
You will practise key skills and supervision through team coaching with your peers, by working with the dynamics of the learning community, by using the Team Connect 360 diagnostic tool and by arranging a team coaching case study with a client.
The programme uses its large group experience with observations and comments from the faculty team who will openly discuss the process.
Personal development comes through being a participant on the programme and examining the process of being in it, while going through it and from the final assessment.
You will learn from individual tutorials and a final assessment viva.

Your learning experience

Learning is shared through faculty-led sessions and the whole learning group which is facilitated by the faculty.
You will work with your external client team between and during models and receive supervision from the faculty.
Practitioner groups of four to six will work together on their client teams and provide supervision for each other. This will also be facilitated by a faculty member in support of the practitioner team’s learning.
