Coaching & Education

By ACS Distance Education on January 31, 2019 in Careers, Jobs Success & Psychology | comments
All coaches need to learn and the best way to learn is through taking courses, workshops and seminars. Some of those who teach coaches are teachers in educational establishments, others are coaches who offer tutoring to students.
 

Coaching & Media

By ACS Distance Education on January 31, 2019 in Careers, Jobs Success & Psychology | comments
Coaches may find work in electronic or print media in writing or broadcasting. Books, articles, audio and video recordings are all tools that can be used to help motivate and inform the people being coached. The professional media (e.g. newspapers, TV, radio) may also be important employers of coaches (e.g. sports coaches commenting on sporting events).
 

Coaching & Services

By ACS Distance Education on January 31, 2019 in Careers, Jobs Success & Psychology | comments

Coaches are supported by a range of services, including: coaching industry bodies, professional supervision, bookkeeping and other administrative services. Coaches may become involved in industry bodies, or may actually work for these organisations.

The type of work undertaken by people in this sector can be quite variable. Those working for organisations that represent the coaching industry are likely to spend time assisting coaches, producing newsletters and industry reports and organising events.

 

Coaching: Equipment & Materials

By ACS Distance Education on January 31, 2019 in Careers, Jobs Success & Psychology | comments
There are things that coaches use and people who supply those things are as much a part of the coaching industry as the coaches themselves e.g. sports coaches need sports equipment and rule books; exercise coaches and health coaches need things to measure a person's physical condition; business coaches need tools to measure the status of a business.
 

Health Coaching

By ACS Distance Education on January 31, 2019 in Careers, Jobs Success & Psychology | comments
Coaching involves guiding people to better choices for better lives; or fulfilling their potential personally and professionally. A health coach is focused on current problems:  helping clients cope and improve their situation. A coach is not a counsellor or therapist though.
