Who are the Educators and Trainers?

Education

There are three different types of education bodies/training organisations in the coaching and mentoring industry:

  • Formal Education Body
    These are government-approved education bodies i.e. Universities, Colleges, and Schools, that provide government-approved training courses in coaching and/or mentoring.
    .
  • Private Commercial Training Organisations/Companies
    There are generally commercial training companies that do not come under the countries Government Education Department/System, but who provide coaching and/or mentoring training to future coaches and/or mentors.
    .
  • Coaches and/or Mentors (who provide training to their clients)
    These are generally Coaches and/or Mentors that do not come under the countries Government Education Department/System, but who provide training, using their coaching and/or mentoring competence, to their clients.  These Coaches and/or Mentors will be found on the Directory as ‘Private Commercial Training Organisations’.

This single central unified directory is provided for the benefit of the consumers, and each directory entry provides details of all Education Bodies/Organisations who demonstrate their commitment to excellence in the coaching and mentoring industry.

The IRCM CIC encourages all Formal Education Bodies, Private Commercial Training Organisations, and Coaches and Mentors who provide training, to REGISTER with the IRCM CIC to demonstrate their commitment to their clients.  Registering will confirm to your students/clients that you have agreed to abide by the IRCM CIC’s unified industry Codes of Conduct and recognise the Ombudsman Service.

If your organisation selects not to REGISTER with the IRCM CIC and agree to abide by the unified Code of Industry Ethics, unified Core Competencies, Disciplinary Procedures, and recognise the central Ombudsman Service, you are not demonstrating your organisations’ professionalism to your students/clients.

The IRCM CIC encourages Private Commercial Training Organisations to authenticate their course and/or workshop standard by gaining an accreditation/credentialing from one or more IRCM CIC Registered or Accredited Professional Bodies.
