We believe these to be of most interest for our members so if you know of others, do please let us know . 

This list has been compiled by the BACP Information Office from a variety of sources. Inclusion does not mean that an organisation is recognised or recommended by BACP.

There are numerous coaching courses in the UK and internationally, ranging from one day taster sessions through to Masters level and beyond, across many coaching modalities within and for many different contexts.

BACP is currently mapping out the various coaching training courses and so far we've identified well over 250 courses in the UK alone, with more being added every day to our list. Therefore whilst this work is being undertaken, we offer this basic listing of coach training courses, primarily in the UK.
