About the European Quality Award (EQA)

EMCC’s European Quality Award (EQA) offers the market place the much needed framework to enable the quality of mentoring/coaching services to meet and be recognised for meeting high quality standards of the profession. Mentoring/coaching training organisations may apply for their programmes to be awarded at one of four levels:

Foundation ● Practitioner ● Senior Practitioner ● Master Practitioner

A list of EQA Providers can be downloaded here.

Individuals who wish to train as mentors/coaches can select from the list of EQA Providers with confidence that the content of the training is of high quality and recognised by the market they wish to enter. Once an individual is an EQA certificate holder, he/she may apply for a European Individual Accreditation, using the (version 2) revised application process. 

To find out more about the EQA and how to apply please use the menu on the right of this page.  You can also download all relevant documents from the download section which is also on the right of this page.
