Do you have a passion for coaching, mentoring and supervision?
Are you keen to help shape the future direction of the profession?
EMCC UK is a professional membership organisation which encourages excellence and progression for mentors, coaches and supervisors. Our aim is to define, create and promote best practice for all in mentoring, coaching and supervision. We provide a reference point for key elements like standards and ethics and a continuous conversation about how to keep improving them. It is an exciting time to join the EMCC UK volunteering team.
EMCC UK - Mentoring Programme
Are you an EMCC UK Member and experienced mentor? Could you spare sometime to support other EMCC UK members to develop and progress their practice? Are you looking for a mentor?
If you have answered yes to the above ... please read on...
Our mentoring programme is the only mentoring scheme offered by a professional UK coaching and supervision body. It enables EMCC UK members to get involved in mentoring, either by volunteering their skills and experience as a mentor, or by requesting someone to mentor them. Launched in 2016, the programme has developed significantly, with members giving and receiving mentorship after creating professional profiles on MentorNet, the online platform.
The relaunch of our programme in February 2020, will help more people experience the power of mentoring for themselves. Natalia de Estevan-Ubeda, Knowledge Exchange Director of EMCC UK, says: ‘Getting involved in the mentoring programme, whether as a mentor or as a mentee, is a great way to enhance your membership experience through mutual learning’.
If you are an experienced mentor and can give sometime to support other EMCC UK members - we would love to hear from you.
Please see the attached about participating in the programme.
EMCC UK is looking for volunteers to get involved in a programme of work to make Supervision centric to what we do. This is part of the Knowledge Exchange 2020 priorities where we are looking at Supervision as one of the focus areas. Amongst other things, we are devising an online Digital Module Course on The Essentials of Supervision. The aim of this online course is to set out the basics of supervision to coaches who are not particularly familiar with supervision. The design of the course will be led by Bob Thomson from Warwick Business School, who is an EMCC accredited supervisor. We are seeking volunteers in three areas:
1) Coaches who do not have much experience yet of being supervised, who are willing to share their thoughts on what they are looking for from supervision, and who can comment on the course material from their perspective.
2) Accredited Supervisors who are willing to share their thoughts and experiences, and who can comment on the course material from their perspective.
3) Accredited Supervisors who are willing to moderate online discussions and comments from participants during the running of the course.
We hope to create short film clips of volunteers answering questions such as What are you looking for from a supervisor? or How do you structure a supervision conversation?
If you are interested and would like to find out more, please contact Bob Thomson at firstname.lastname@example.org or Natalia de Estevan-Ubeda at Natalia.email@example.com

Natalia de Estevan Ubeda has exciting plans for Knowledge Exchange in 2020 - could you contribute to this?
There are 5 key priorities for the year ahead:
1. Mentoring Programme - re-energising the value of mentoring as a benefit for EMCC UK members.
2. Positioning Supervision at the heart of EMCC UK
3. Research - making research available to EMCC UK members in an accessible and appealing manner.
4. Engaging with Business Schools - research and development in coaching, mentoring and supervision
5. Creating content differently: focus topics and trend topics
I would like to invite you to come forward and express an interest so that we can deliver this ambitious programme of
work. There are additional activities which are linked to the above priorities and which I have not listed. For instance, the re-energising of the Special Advisors Hub to
provide that expert rigour, advice and critique on publications (books, journal articles etc..) and others which will take shape as we develop the priority areas above. So, if you are wondering about something you used to be involved in the past, or have new ideas, please let me know.
Please email me if you want to discuss any of this further:
