Coaching and mentoring skills workshop

Develop coaching skills to support the progression of underrepresented police officers and staff.

This programme builds your coaching and mentoring skills, so you can play an active role in the development, progression and retention of officers and staff from groups underrepresented in policing.

The course includes discussions about building an inclusive environment and how mentoring relationships can be impacted by differences or perceived differences. It also includes reflections on the lived experiences of officers and staff from groups currently underrepresented in policing.

The programme will enhance your effectiveness as a leader, enabling you to have better conversations with anyone.

The programme involves three sections, including:

  • pre-work – including mandatory learning for the online session
  • one, three-hour online session
  • a two-day, face-to-face workshop – covering the impact of bias on individuals and groups, how to be an active bystander, and core skills of coaching and mentoring

These sections are interspersed with periods of reading and video viewing, and time in the workplace for your learning to be reflected on and applied. 

You will be supported throughout with access to two Level 7-qualified and highly experienced executive coaches, who will be leading the sessions.

Those who attend the programme commit to working with at least three people from groups underrepresented in policing over the period of 18 months.
