The ICF Core Competencies were released in November 2019, marking its first update since the competencies’ creation in 1998. Importantly, from mid 2022 all ICF credentialling assessments need to reflect the new core competencies. Whilst the competencies may look similar on the surface, there are significant positive changes that we need to be aware of as professional coaches.
In addition, the ICF released a new structure for credentialing not only programs, but organisations delivering coach training. It’s goodbye to ACTP and ASCTH!
Whether you are thinking about credentialling or not, in this recording you will discover how the ICF core competencies have changed to reflect common practice in the industry (including workplace coaching); how the credential levels have changed; and most importantly, how the changes are designed to increase the professionalism of our industry as a whole.
The learning objectives of this recording include:
1. What are the new core competencies and how have they changed?
2. What impact do the changes to the core competencies have on credential applications?
3. What are the new changes to the credential pathways, including the retirement of ACTP and ACSTH?
4. What impact will the changes have on credential application?
5. How will the changes impact the professionalism of the industry?
