Coaching and mentoring are both collaborative processes that assist individuals in reaching their full potential. Coaching is generally a shorter term relationship focused on an individual achieving performance driven goals. Mentoring is often an ongoing relationship where a more experienced individual works with someone less experienced on personal and professional growth. Coaching and mentoring both play an important role in personal and professional development in healthcare. This course will equip you with insights and practical skills to develop your effectiveness as both a coach and mentor as part of your portfolio of leadership skills.


This course provides an overview of coaching and mentoring and explores the differences and similarities between the two approaches. A collection of practical tools and activities are provided to assist you in developing your skills and effectiveness in working with your colleagues in these different roles.


This course is made up of videos, reading, discussions and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Video
  2. Practical activities
  3. Reading activity
  4. Quiz

Target audience

This course is aimed at Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy clinicians, students and assistants. Other interested professionals such as athletic trainers, occupational therapists, nurses or medical doctors interested in this subject are also invited to participate.

Featured review

I really recommend this programme. All the leadership modules are amazing and really beneficial. I thought in a few situations in my practice that I am doing something wrong and I was blaming myself. However, after I went through these modules I saw the situations from a different perspective and received many new ideas for better management.
