Observed coaching is the place where all of your core classes, mentor coaching sessions and learning conversations with your peer clients start to come together. In class you will coach with feedback from your Observed Trainer.  However, unlike labs or mentor coaching, the feedback is both verbal and written, and will document your use of the ICF competencies.


You are required to attend a total of 15 hours Observed Coaching. This includes a 5 week coaching series to total 7.5 hrs (you need to register) and then 5 weeks of further observation to total 7.5 hrs (you can join any Observed Lab). Each lab runs for 90 mins

  • The Role of Coach

    This series is all about you – The Coach.  You will record 5 coaching sessions (one each week) and present them to your Observed Trainer and peers during your weekly lab. Your Observed Trainer will provide feedback and guidance against the ICF’s PCC markers.

    You must commit to a 5 week series (7.5 hrs) where you will be one of three students who coach each week.

    You must attend all 5 weeks, as per your registration.


  • The Role of Observer

    You will observe a range of coaching sessions, and consider your personal observations with those of the Observed Trainer – making note of markers you identified or might have missed. Use this learning to improve your own knowledge, skills and technique.

    You can choose 5 Labs from any coaching series (7.5 hrs) for the role of peer observer.
