Coaching is a key component of the Student Leadership Programme. The coaching scheme is about leadership style and aspirations more so than careers advice. The key factors of the Student Leadership Project are co-creation, co-production and personal experience. Therefore, the main aspect of the coaching scheme is developing the students’ leadership potential and recognising the best leadership traits in them.
BENEFITS OF COACHING

Each student on the programme is allocated a coach to support them on their leadership journey from March-October. The Student Leadership Programme team assesses the needs of the student, based on the information provided on their application form. We then analyse our pool of volunteer coaches to consider which coach would be the best match given the student needs and also geographic proximity.
