iconKeeping in Touch Workshops (KIT)

KIT workshops are designed to provide ongoing professional development and support to aspiring, new and experienced coaches and mentors. They are run every 3 months on the third Tuesday of the month from 9.45am – 4.30pm at Castle Donington, Derbyshire.

The workshops are renowned for providing the opportunity for coaches and mentors to develop their thinking and practice in a supportive and safe environment as well as to both learn from and support other practitioners. Networking opportunities are available at the beginning and end of the day.

Attendance is open to current members of the Optimising Coaching Community, their agreed guests and anybody who has previously attended any of our programmes.

Non-members are also welcome at the full cost for the day of £175.00. To book, please click on the relevant link below.
