Award-winning global experts in coaching, Notion, have announced a WORLD FIRST as they officially launch BRAND NEW and prestigious Level 3, 4 and 5 Operational Coaching™ and Management qualifications.

Notion’s unique Operational Coaching™ approach, which transforms managers and helps them develop a more collaborative and inclusive management style, now merits the award of an OFQUAL registered qualification in its own right.

Recognised at Levels 3, 4 and 5 as part of a new suite of coaching and management qualifications, Managers pursuing any of Notion’s STAR® programme will now get a formal qualification alongside much-needed skills for the modern workplace. 

“Operational coaching is proven to embed sustainable behavioural change, drive high performance and deliver fantastic commercial results, fast,” says Notion’s Director of Coaching, Laura Ashley-Timms.

“If you want to improve your everyday management skills and/or learn how to support and develop your team through effective Operational Coaching™, you can now also gain a prestigious coaching and management qualification that will make sure you and your team are the best in your field.

We’ve spent over a decade working with leaders and managers, helping them to develop this ‘enquiry-led approach’ to leadership, and we’ve seen astonishing results. Even through major change programmes, managers have been able to deliver increases in engagement, productivity and performance as well as incredible uplifts in creativity and innovation.

I’m delighted that we can now give well-deserved recognition of these higher-order skills with the award of our brand new qualifications that will transform our learners’ careers.”

The super-flexible qualifications are available in an exciting, fun and award-winning virtual blend and at prices to suit every pocket.

With access to Notion’s world-class Tutors, the interactive online modules have been carefully constructed to ensure that learners develop the coaching and management skills they need, whether they’re newly appointed line managers in a small business or senior leaders in a global organisation.

Notion’s new qualifications are being launched amid the global pandemic with uncertainty about the future rife, but Laura is adamant that there’s no better time:

Whilst it might feel counterintuitive to invest in your personal development or that of your team, it’s a sure-fire way to ensure that you emerge from the crisis stronger than before. As managers, you’re being asked to deal with a brand new paradigm, which will require entirely new skills from you in order to support those you work with to overcome uncertainty.

If you wait until the crisis is over, you might be tired, drained and overwhelmed by the road ahead but if you’ve built up the confidence and the capability to succeed during the crisis, you'll come out fighting. The faster you can acquire these skills the easier it will be to bounce back”. 

Employers considering new development programmes for their managers might also be interested to know that over recent months, learners undertaking the skills programme (as part of a wider Government trial) have achieved over 33 times return on investment for their organisations despite the current crisis. 

Most of Notion’s brand new coaching and management qualifications can be achieved in under six months (some in as little as three months), and for the level 3, 4 and 5 qualifications there are no onerous exams, no burdensome additional written work nor prolonged periods away from the organisation.

Everything is embedded within the comprehensively built programme and learners who diligently complete all aspects will not only benefit from an immediate return on their personal investment, but they’ll also automatically merit the award of the qualification.
