All in all, the UKCC Level 1 Coaching course was a fun experience. The course was run by Ashley St.john-claire and luckily for me was at Platty + on Derwentwater. Having the opportunity to run my own groups (however small they were) has really given me a good understanding of what it takes to be a successful coach and how to apply the basics of coaching into my own sessions. I feel it allowed me to develop my own understanding of the aims of coaching and leading a group, giving me a starting point to build upon in the future. I am looking forward to putting it all into practise. Why not come along and see how I am doing!
