"Coaching and Mentoring, when well done, is the most cost-effective – and enjoyable- way of developing staff so that they deliver with real enthusiasm and engagement," says Roger Stent, Managing Director of ST*R Learning. "It will improve motivation, raise skill levels and significantly help in keeping your best staff."
ST*R Learning offers an extensive range of workshops and qualifications in Coaching and Mentoring.
Our flagship programmes are the Certificate and Diploma in Coaching from the Institute of Leadership and Management. Both courses consist of 6 or 7 days of tuition and observed practice, plus personal practice (the Diploma needs 100 hours, the Certificate needs 12). This course has been taken, amongst others, by Senior Referee coaches from Professional Game Match Officials Limited, the professional body overseeing referee development and performance for the FA, the Football League and the Premier League.
We can also offer:
ILM Level 3 Qualifications in both Coaching and Mentoring – invaluable to those just starting on their coaching development and seeking formal recognition of their skill.
Coaching Skills at Work – a one-day workshop to provide an introduction for those not familiar with the skills involved or the role of coaching at work.
Coaching for Managers – a two-day intensive workshop for managers and team leaders seeking to put into practice the skills they will learn
Making the most of Coaching – this 3-hour session is an introduction for those on the receiving end of coaching. A skilled coach can make the coachee comfortable and open to discussion, but it really helps if the coachee knows what to expect, what the coach is trying to achieve, and what is expected of them. A brilliant way to start the roll-out of your coaching initiative at work.

Mentoring will improve motivation, raise skill levels and aid the retention of staff.
