WORKSHOP 2: The NEXT STEP COACH APPROACH
This 2-day course is an interactive experience designed to build on the coaching skills learned in the Foundation Coach Approach workshop. Practitioners will learn about models of practice used internationally and explore their application to practice in the Australian context.
