Coaching Skills for Wellbeing Award


Our Coaching Skills for Wellbeing Award aims to support, empower and inspire students to learn key coaching skills, tools and a coaching model, alongside wellbeing interventions which they can personally apply to support their own wellbeing. In addition, students will confidently be able to use their evidence-based coaching skills and wellbeing interventions with others, within a leadership role, to support the mental health and wellbeing of their peers.

Coaching develops emotional intelligence which is key to help leaders anticipate the future to maintain pace with a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world and stay prominent in the market with a committed workforce. Evidence shows that returns on investment in coaching are significant and far outweigh the initial investment. The ICF highlighted 85% of organisations saw a return on investment and more.

Why Coaching:

  1. 1 in 6 young people are reporting symptoms of mental distress since the pandemic.
  2. Half of all mental health problems are established by the time someone is 14.
  3. 75% of all mental health problems are established by the time someone is 18.
  4. Young Minds is calling for action from the Government to provide more early mental health support for young people.
