You may be able to combine one to one supervision along with group supervision. This is permitted under the new Accreditation Scheme of the Association for Coaching.
Group Supervision is open to those who want an economical way of experiencing professional supervision with the added support of peers.
Peer Supervision is also acceptable but do check at what level of mastery you should be at.
Please be aware that as you enter training to become a coach that you will be allocated a mentor or supervisor offered as part of your training. However as you become an established professional coach with paying clients the Professional Coaching Bodies require you to have supervision in a ratio to your coaching hours. This has become standard practice and is an absolute requirement for all official accreditation processes.
Coach Accreditation may have been awarded to you as part of your training course but do check to make sure your provider is running an approved course by the International Coach Federation, Association for Coaching or the European Mentoring and Coaching Council.
To achieve the required levels for Coach Accreditation you must log all your coaching hours, continual professional development hours and hours of supervision. Keeping careful notes of your supervision sessions is proof of your learning. Your supervisor must also complete a report that stipulates the key skills that you have developed, learning points and how you see your professional development continuing.
