The i-coach vision

Since its foundation in 2001, by Prof. Mike van Oudtshoorn, i-coach academy has sought to achieve standards of excellence in coaching and to maintain its position as the leader in the development of professional coaches. The i-coach academy has three main areas of activity:

  • Education and Research
  • Professional Development
  • Coaching and Consulting Services

At i-coach academy, we offer accredited professional education programmes, which lead to Post Graduate Certificate, Masters or Doctorate qualifications from the Institute for Work Based Learning at Middlesex University. There are also established i-coach academy programmes in South Africa and the United States with additional local accreditation options.

Professor Mike van Oudtshoorn, Founder i-coach academy

The aim of i-coach academy is to create a recognised standard of academic and practice-based excellence to underpin the discipline of coaching so that practitioners and clients know how to assess the quality and effectiveness of the coaching they give or receive. Professor Mike van Oudtshoorn

Members of the i-coach faculty not only have experience of coaching education but they are coaches and consultants themselves who make frequent contact with major employers and are therefore informed of the latest developments in business and the changes that are demanded of those who work within these organisations.

By striving to create the ideal environment for learning, while forging strong links with educational, professional and business organisations both locally and globally, i-coach is now established as a specialist provider in developing coaching practice,1:1 coaching, facilitation, research and consultancy.
