Coaching is the process that mobilizes strengths and realizes the potential of business individuals and organizations. The practice of coaching psychology embodies a skill set designed to optimize the performance of a person in an organization in areas including leadership, corporate, public service, healthcare and other professional services. “Coaching psychology can be understood as being the systematic application of behavioural science to the enhancement of work performance and well‐being for business individuals, groups and organisation.” Anthony Grant (2006).

Structure of studies for DProf. in Coaching Psychology by partnership with Professional Development Foundation and Middlesex University (UK).
The DProf. in Coaching Psychology is for advanced practitioners and is designed to focus on their professional development within their organisational/professional context. The DProf is open to all professional areas as the focus is defined by the candidate’s particular work context and area of activity and their own unique area of interest. This may be located within a profession or sector, or may be more individual in nature. The approach is interdisciplinary and is primarily concerned with knowledge that is generated and used in practice.
As a candidate for this award you would undertake a critical reflection upon your practice and then design and undertake a doctoral level practice–based research project in your own work within your own organisation or community of practice. At the end of the programme candidates submit a research report and take part in an oral examination or viva on their research. With the successful completion of the examination the candidate achieves a doctorate and can be addressed as Doctor.
What is distinctive about the DProf?
Candidates are mentored to develop a research project which is unique to them at the current stage of their career and enable them to make an impact at an organisational or profession wide basis.
The DProf allows the previous learning (both formal courses and informal learning from experience) to be recognised for its contribution to the development of practice and ascribed academic credit to be used within the programme.
Structure of the research project
The research project is undertaken within practice making it ideal for those wishing to make significant, high level impact within their organisations or for those wishing to make a unique contribution to their professional community.
Course structure: the programme is divided into two stages. The first stage lasts for one year and prepares the candidates for their research. The second stage lasts at least two years but should take no longer than three years and this is when the project activity is undertaken leading to the final research report. The size of a programme is identified through its academic credits and for a Doctorate it is necessary to achieve 540 credits (180 at level 7 and 360 at level 8). Below is a description of how these credits are achieved.
Stage 1: Review of Learning – (20 credits) compulsory and Accreditation of Professional Learning (100 credits)
This is the opportunity to identify the capabilities, attributes and authorities you bring to your programme. You will work with your advisor to provide a 5,000 word critically reflective report on your formal and informal learning to date. Within it you will identify what makes you the professional you are with your own signature practice developed with time and experience. It is retrospective and identifies why undertaking the doctorate is appropriate for you at your current stage in professional development and what makes you equipped to undertake the particular area of interest that you identify.
Within this module you will also have the opportunity to claim credit for research capability you already have and professional learning in an area of specialisation in your field. This can be done through the recognition of a masters degree you already hold or through a short written claim for credit identifying how you developed these capabilities through your professional life. If you feel you cannot make these claims then there is the option to undertake small project work to achieve the required number of credits.
The combination of this review and the claims for credit will provide you with 120 credits towards your programme.
Accreditation of Advanced Professional Learning (100 credits)-optional
In the previous section candidates can make a claim for professional learning and some may be able to make a far more substantial claim for advanced professional learning. Examples of this level of learning could be that you have already published a book in the field or worked at senior committee level within your professional body. If that is the case then you can make a claim for this advanced learning of a further 120 credits. We would expect only 20% of candidates to be in a position to make such a claim.
Planning a Practitioner Research Programme (60 credits) – compulsory
Having made explicit your skills, expertise, attributes and interests you are now in a position to plan your research project. Within this module you construct the research plan by considering the research approach, methodology and instruments which are congruent with the focus of your enquiry and the outcomes you wish to see for yourself, your organisation and your wider community of practice.
Once you have designed your research then you have the opportunity to present it to a Programme Approval Panel and Ethics sub committee. This is a group of experienced researchers who provide you with formative feedback to enhance its robustness, ethics and potential for impact at the level required. You will incorporate their feedback in your final Learning Agreement which provides the plan for the following two year of research activity.
Stage 2: the Research Project (240 or 360 credit)-compulsory
Throughout the next two years you will undertake your research project with the support and guidance of your advisor and chosen consultant(s). The research report will consider:
the relevant literature relating to your research topic;
the collection and analysis of data;
interpretation and implementation of results and consideration of strategic impact to your organisation and your professional community.
Candidates for the programme have significant experience in their professional life and may also have a masters degree
Previous experience of higher education is not a prerequisite but experience within the work environment is essential
It is preferable that candidates for this programme will have experience of management of people and projects with significant technical experience.
- Successful Personal interviws of candidate by face to face or by video is a prerequisite to eligibility
