Coaching Young People: Challenges and successes

Working with young people using a coaching approach presents many challenges, and engaging young people effectively is a common concern for professionals working in a variety of settings. Coaching involves a number of skills which can enhance this engagement, but is rarely used in professional settings where it could have positive impact. This talk will address two approaches to coaching young people who are involved with professional services (such as young offenders, children in care, not in education, employment or training (NEET)), offering insight into the practical application of coaching in these settings.
