News Flash - International Coach Federation (ICF) Approval Awarded to The Coaching Academy!

Amongst other changes to our website recently, you may have spotted one small but very exciting addition from us.

The ICF scrutinised The Coaching Academy Personal Performance Coaching Diploma and we are extremely pleased to confirm that we have been awarded approval from the ICF for their Approved Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH) accreditation programme.

For anyone who isn’t aware , the ICF is a global organisation, with over 21,000 members, dedicated to advancing the coaching profession by setting high professional standards, providing independent certification, and building a network of credentialed coaches.

The Coaching Academy Personal Performance Coaching Diploma has been awarded 54 Approved Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH) meaning our graduates will have met the requirements for coach training hours required to apply for further individual credentials from ICF*.

What does this mean?

The programme approval process involves a very detailed analysis on the quality of our training, our trainers and the assessment process that our students undertake.  The quality assurance procedures that we maintain are also analysed as part of the ICF approval.

In short the approved programme demonstrates internally and externally the quality of The Coaching Academy’s Personal Performance Diploma by meeting a worldwide recognised standard.

It also demonstrates our commitment to potential and existing students that as an organisation, The Coaching Academy strives to maintain its position as the market leader for coach training. Something we are very proud of!

Huge thanks and credit must go to our Qualifications Manager Jan Lonnen for securing our ICF approval for us! Thank you Jan!


* Dependant on the requested level of certification. Information regarding the specific credential requirements can be located on the ICF website

Are all your courses approved by ICF or is it just the Personal Performance coaching Diploma?

Thank you.
