Aberdeen based coaching and consultancy company lightbulb.coach, has been awarded accreditation status by the International Coaching Federation for a new coaching skills course. Known for their work with schools and early careers, lightbulb.coach has designed a course that can be delivered to senior school pupils as well as adults who are looking to add “Accredited Level 1 ICF Coach” to their CV.

The “Certificate in Professional Coaching” is a 60-hour course. It includes classroom learning, coaching practice, coach mentoring and provides creative tools that can be used with a younger audience too.

This accreditation is a significant achievement for lightbulb.coach, as it recognises the high quality of its training program. The ICF is the leading global organisation for professional coaches, with over 30,000 members in more than 140 countries.

Raising the standards of coaching

According to lightbulb.coach's Founder and Professional Coach Sarah Smith, achieving ICF accreditation is a major milestone for the company. "We are thrilled to have our course accredited by the ICF," she said. "This recognition is a testament to our dedication to train coaches at the highest standard, as well as the quality of our coaching program. We believe that coaching is a powerful tool for personal and professional growth, and we are committed to making it accessible to pupils as well as adults, to create a new generation of coaches”. Sarah added, “Coaching is not a therapy; it is forward facing and can empower young people to take charge of their own future”.

The Advantage

The ICF accreditation is also a significant benefit for students who complete lightbulb.coach's course. By earning an ICF-accredited credential, they demonstrate to potential clients and employers that they have met the highest standards of professional coaching. This can help them stand out in a crowded marketplace.

lightbulb.coach offers a range of coaching, training and consultancy services to education, businesses and individuals.
