Competences

The EMCC coaching and mentoring competence framework can be downloaded here

The purpose of the competence framework is to provide a description of a mentor/coach at four distinct levels of development in order to help mentors/coaches understand their level of development and Training Providers evaluate the effectiveness of their programmes through the mentor/coaching performance of their students. The competence indicators are examples of behaviours or principles of the coaching profession that meet the eight competence categories. The competence framework also provides an assessment tool that allows an experienced assessor to evaluate the behaviours of a mentor/coach; categorise the level that the mentor/coach is operating at (EIA Level Descriptors); and categorise the level of mentor/coach training (EQA Level Descriptors).

The EMCC supervision competence framework can be downloaded here

EMCC supports the use of competence frameworks as part of a wider approach to the training, developmentand assessment of coaches, mentors and supervisors.  The EMCC Supervision Competence Framework describes the skills and behaviours we believe to be associated with good practice in supervision. EMCC also accepts that competence frameworks have limitations.  There are some qualities of an effective supervisor,for example, ‘personal presence’, that may not be easily broken into constituent parts. Therefore, EMCCadvocates an awareness of the whole person in addition to the skill-set that they have to offer i.e. ‘how they are being’ is equally as important as ‘what they are doing’. Please bear this in mind when working with theEMCC Supervision Competence Framework. The capability indicators listed below each competence headingare therefore there for guidance only and are not a list of absolute requirements.
