“The faculty is brilliant, and the course engaging and easy to follow. The live demonstrations between them were a mini master class and extremely helpful. Overall a terrific and exciting experience. I feel I am very much in ‘the right place’ in terms of the professional learning; huge respect for the faculty and feel privileged to have been learning there.”

At Catalyst 14, we have been delivering inspiring and cutting-edge coach development programmes since our inception.

Below you will find information about our three flagship EMCC accredited courses, which offer you a structured development path so you can select the depth of training and coaching qualification that is right for you.

During the current Covid-19 crisis, all training for our coaching qualifications has moved online. We will of course be continuously reviewing the Government guidelines and will move to our usual blended delivery approach (face-to-face and online modules) as soon as possible. 

During the pandemic, we have utilised our experience and reputation in delivering highly effective online experiential learning programmes. Due to the advances in technology, and our belief that coaches need to be effective at working online, our courses and events have always made extensive use of virtual learning environments (so coaches can practice working online whilst receiving feedback from our team). This means that our online qualifications offer you: 

  • The same accreditation
  • The same experiential training
  • The same high-quality learning experience
  • The same exceptional support whilst you train with us.

“The faculty is fabulous – so knowledgeable and such masters in their fields. It was like an art watching them doing the practical sessions for us to observe.

Transformation comes out of the Latin root transforma, meaning ‘change across form’. It is a shift at the most fundamental levels of being, thinking, perception, character, and worldview. In quantum physics terms, you could say that transformation is the result of a fundamental shift in vibrational frequency and pattern at the core or essence level. When shift occurs at the core of our being and understanding, then our thoughts and/or beliefs, and often even our circumstances and how we approach them, change to the degree that they can never go back to how they were before. This is because we have transformed in some fundamental way.”
