What is your policy on withdrawals and refunds?
School of change offers a professional course to become an ICF accredited coach, run by leading experts in organisational design and change management. If, however, you are not fully satisfied with your experience, we will gladly consider refunding the tuition fees. To apply for a refund, please send an e-mail to email@example.com before 12pm (noon) on June 5, 2020. The e-mail must include all your course work. It should demonstrate that you have invested the required amount of time and effort. No refund application after the deadline can be considered.
Is School of Change a coach training programme?
Yes. Participants who successfully complete modules 1, 2 and 3 can apply to become a certified coach with the International Coaching Federation. Faculty will guide you through the requirements. Our goal is for School of Change to be an ICF accredited programme at ACTP level by mid-2021. This will provide participants with a fast track route onto both ACC and PCC levels of certification with the ICF.
Is School of Change open to non-coaches?
Absolutely. The programme is for change makers. It is grounded in deep coaching competence because we believe coaching to be an absolutely necessary skill to lead through sustainable change with profound impact, but not all participants want to formally certify as coaches with the ICF thereafter. And that's absolutely fine. We care about equipping you with the resilience, mindset and skills required to empower you to solve today’s complex problems.
Are there requirements students must meet to enter the programme?
The programme does not have formal entry requirements.
However, you must commit to investing the time required for your growth. The time commitment is of ca. 5-6 hours per week: 2 hours of insight lectures by faculty, 2 hours of small team coaching practice and 1-2 hours of reflective work, reading, journaling.
What do you mean by lifetime access?
We believe transformation occurs layer by layer, that we get deeper and deeper over time. That's why we give you lifetime access. You can retake the programme for free every year for as long as it exists. By purchasing the programme now, your secure alumni access to every future edition.
