Adler's Partnership with University of Toronto's Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE)
As of September, 2007, Adler International Learning and OISE have been partnering to issue joint coaching certificates. Adler students will now receive certificates of completion recognized by both learning organizations. For more information, please visit the OISE website.
In an effort to promote the most effective learning environment, we have compiled some guidelines that serve to support our professional standards of excellence for our staff as well as our program content and delivery. In coaching as in all relationships, clarity about expectations sets the stage for utually statisfying interactions. It is in this spirit that we set forth these STUDENT GUIDELINES.
* Accreditation is awarded
to programs that meet the rigorous professional standards established by the
ICF for coach training programs. Graduation from an accredited program
meets the ICF requirements for individual coach certification for: student contact
learning hours, mentor coaching, and passing an ICF-approved exam. Accreditation
does not warrant or guarantee the effectiveness of the training or the student’s
ability to build a successful coaching practice.
