We are delighted to be offering the ILM Level 5 in Coaching and Mentoring again starting January 2022. This course has been heavily subsidised by Halifax Foundation for Northern Ireland, thank you for making this possible. 

Change comes in many forms, and can affect every part of our lives. We can experience transitions in work and our relationships, as well as our personal lives. Sometimes we know a change will occur and sometimes change happens suddenly and unexpectedly. Many people spend a great deal of effort trying to avoid change, but the situation surrounding COVID-19 has meant we have had to adjust how we spend our day to day lives in order to save the lives of others.

We are delighted to be offering the ILM Level 5 in Coaching and Mentoring again starting January 2022. This course has been heavily subsidised by Halifax Foundation for Northern Ireland, thank you for making this possible. 

Please note this course is for leaders in the third sector only. Contact us if you are unsure if this is you. 

Delivery method: This programme will be delivered online. Each day of the programme will be a combination of live, facilitated sessions with some self-directed learning and reflection activities.
This programme is an opportunity to pause and reflect on your leadership. It will help you to strengthen your coaching approach, gaining greater personal insight, different perspectives and increased self-awareness so you can lead and develop others even more effectively.

It is also an opportunity to identify how you can build your resilience and practice self-care as busy leaders. Delivered with an interactive approach, you will work with and learn from peers to explore a range of practical concepts and approaches. This programme relies on the group supporting each other to learn and develop and build a community of established leaders.

Save the Date - Carnegie UK Trust Conference

“What Kind of Northern Ireland (NI) do we want”? 

The Carnegie UK Trust (CUKT) was set up to improve the wellbeing of the people of the UK and Ireland. Over the past five years we have been working with partners in Northern Ireland on embedding a wellbeing approach in government.

We know that COVID-19 will have major long-term impacts for Northern Ireland communities, economy, and the delivery of essential public services. We are therefore hosting this event to explore key questions for improving wellbeing in Northern Ireland and share practical ideas for tackling the challenges ahead through a series of online discussions. Attendees will include civil society, government, business and academic leaders and practitioners. The discussions will be designed to be as inclusive as possible to support a range of experiences and views to be heard.

Using online workshops and roundtable discussions the project will identify and explore key questions, test assumptions and expectations about the post-COVID-19 future and start developing ideas and sharing practical plans for the challenges ahead.

Please 'Save the Date' for the Conference below.
