A core aspect of the program is a work placement in which students secure a sponsor/mentor, determine a project, implement and evaluate the project, and practise and reflect on coaching relationships and processes. The site of the placement may be within a current employment setting or another appropriate worksite. Students are exposed to inter-professional learning, planning and leadership, coaching practice, collegiality, and collaboration. Online interactions and reflections occur with the instructor and class throughout the placement experience. This work placement consists of 225 hours.
Students will have the opportunity to engage in wellness coaching sessions with clients in the Centre for Healthy Living. These sessions will provide students with the experience to build their coaching skills.
