Future of Coaching Collaboration


The Future of Coaching Collaboration (FCC) is a multi-stakeholder group including representatives from corporates, leading professional bodies in the UK, academia, research institutes and Coaching at Work. FCC was launched in April 2015 with the aim of collaborating, professionalising and innovating to safeguard the coaching profession. The group emerged from the Coaching at Work-led Accreditation Forum, which gathered professional body representatives with coaching sponsors to increase collaboration.

The FCC seeks to be wider in scope and communities represented. For example, it now includes representatives from academia and has expanded its focus to include developing guidance on best practice; continued alignment across accrediting bodies on standards and quality control, and ethics, including a common code of conduct.

More FCC-related content can be found on the Coaching Knowledge Portal.
