Singapore University of Social Sciences (formerly SIM University) has been offering the Bachelor of Counselling programme for more than ten years, and has served the needs of Singapore's counselling landscape well. While counselling presupposes problems that clients bring to the table that need to be resolved, coaching has a developmental and preventive flavour to it. In a nutshell, coaching aims to help individuals realise their full potentials in their personal and professional lives.
Our Graduate Diploma in Professional Life-coaching (GD PLC) is positioned to provide life-coaching education for degree holders who wish to prepare for a career in professional life-coaching, and for others who can benefit from life-coaching education in their current careers. Professional life-coaching is empowering for persons in careers like counselling, social work, teaching, human resource management, business, psychology, and those in leadership positions. The skill sets would enable the incumbents in these roles to coach not only their direct clients, but only staff under their supervision.
