Through partnering with St Andrews Community Network, we have developed a community coaching hub with 30 volunteers trained as peer coaches and access to life coaches for more complex issues. The hub has been able to reach members of the community which might not otherwise have been reached to support recovery from issues such as addiction, abuse and mental health, and also support local people improve their quality of life.
Through our work with St Andrew's Community Network we have developed a two tier service provision in our community coaching hubs. The majority of volunteers are trained to become peer coaches which comprises the first two modules of our accredited life coach training package. This provides sufficient training to have short coaching conversations with people and has been found to be ideal for foodbank and debt advice volunteers.
Once trained as a peer coach, trainees are subsequently able to upgrade to become a fully trained life coach with Metanoeo Academy through completion of our upgrade programme which comprises the second two modules of our accredited life coach training programme.
