Over the last year, in partnership with the Tavistock Institute, we have been working on a strategic review into health coaching for Health Education England North Central and East London (HEE NCEL). We’ve been seeking to answer the question: ‘how are health coaching workforce development programmes best: designed, delivered, evaluated and sustained?’ This has involved an extensive literature review, over seventy-five interviews, a workshop and online consultation with experts, commissioners, educators and providers from across the country.
Based on our findings, we co-produced two resources to best support high quality health coaching programmes:
A quality framework – for the commissioning of high quality programmes
A delivery template – for designing health coaching activities at regional and local levels
These resources have been developed in conjunction with HEE NCEL and other partners around the country and are available for download on the Health Education England website.
