Deakin’s Graduate Diploma of Coaching and Counselling extends the knowledge acquired throughout the graduate certificate program to provide advanced level learning and skill acquisition. Throughout the course you will develop flexible high-level independent judgement, as well as professional planning and implementation skills appropriate for working professionally in a coaching and counselling role.
You will also acquire a personalised range of business and marketing tools relevant to a start-up business venture which is particularly relevant for those wishing to establish a business as a professional coach or pursue further qualifications as a counsellor.
The graduate diploma also offers a practical placement unit in the final year of the program which provides an opportunity to develop practical skills in a supported environment and confidently apply your knowledge and skills in a professional setting.
A number of professional associations are linked to the coaching and counselling professions, including the International Society for Coaching Psychology (ISCP), the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and the Australian Counselling Association (ACA). The Graduate Diploma of Coaching and Counselling is ACA accredited.*
Coaching accreditation for the Graduate Certificate and Graduate Diploma will be sought when the first cohort of students graduate at the end of 2013 and 2014 respectively.
*Accreditation with the ACA allows graduate students to apply for membership with the ACA as Level 2 members.
This course provides sufficient generic skills and professional practice applicable to any career where working with individuals and groups for behaviour change is a focus.
