After a successful first cohort on the Postgraduate Certificate for Coaching and Mentoring for Leadership in Organisations in 2019, Save the Children has launched another cohort for their Senior Leadership Team.

Strengthen national/local leadership through coaching and/or mentoring
Increase the effectiveness of knowledge transfer in an emergency response through a mentoring coaching hybrid approach
Create a ‘coaching culture’ in order to grow and nurture talent in order to deliver key results, strengthen leadership capacities, increase retention and deepen engagement
