Coaching skills programmes that positively impact diversity and culture



Coaching Skills Development


We help your managers and leaders develop and deepen their coaching skills, through an innovative approach that partners them with members of our diverse young talent network. 

Whether your organisation has an established coaching culture or is relatively new to coaching our programme works. 


Working across all levels of an organisation our coaching skills programme helps participants become:

  • More skilled at managing others
  • More effective at giving effective and/or difficult feedback
  • More effective at helping others produce results
  • Better at empowering and enabling their teams
  • More open to and aware of different talent
  • More authentic and self-aware

Our clients are blue-chip organisations from a range of industries and our programme is effective from board-level through to first-time line managers.

Working with Arrival Education has had a marked effect on the way I embrace different individuals and coaching. It has helped me see that the difference in people is highly positive and something we should nurture.

The Developing Leaders Coaching Programme



Programme participants are trained in AE’s core coaching principles and coaching model (the CAUSE model) which have been proven to create genuine change and release potential. Our approach to coaching is straight-forward and leads to honest, open and natural conversations.



Participants are then ‘matched’ with members of our diverse young talent network (aged 16-24) to work on a one-to-one basis over a period of 9 months. Meeting every 4-6 weeks, pairs review progress, discuss leadership capabilities and set objectives.



AE facilitates two group sessions – half way through and at the end – to reflect and learn, celebrate success, and encourage reverse coaching (where the student coaches the ‘coach’). AE also provides ongoing support throughout the programme to deal with any issues and provide advice and guidance.  

My team tells me that I have become a much more open and accessible person since starting on the AE coaching programme. They had been trying to tell me things and I hadn’t been listening. The coaching programme changed me in ways I had not anticipated
