It is free to take part in the Become Coaching Programme.

It does not cost any money to take part in the Become Coaching Programme. 

To be considered for the programme you must:

  • be aged 16 – 25;
  • be in care or a care leaver;
  • be able to attend regular one-to-one sessions at Become’s office in Islington, London, on weekdays between 9am – 6pm*;
  • be able to attend occasional group sessions at Become’s office in Islington which take place in the evening (5.30 – 9.00pm)*

*Become’s Coaching and Support Team can provide help and advice on approaching your employer about attending the programme – please speak to us about it.

When you have checked that you meet all the points above, please get in touch with our Coaching and Support Team, who will be able to talk to you about where you’re at in your life, and whether the Become Coaching Programme could be right for you. Once you have spoken to one of the team, you may be invited for a first meeting at Become, to find out if coaching is suitable for you.

To start your application, fill out the enquiry form below, email coaching@becomecharity.org.uk or call 020 7251 3117. You can expect to hear back from us within five working days.

What should I expect after I have sent in the enquiry form?

Please be aware that there is a big demand for a small number of places on the Become Coaching Programme – and it’s not suitable for everyone.

First, someone from our coaching team will be in touch with you. We aim to get back to you in five working days. They’ll ask you some questions to find out where you’re at in your life and why you want to come on the Become Coaching Programme. Once you have spoken to one of the team, you may be invited for a one-to-one meeting with a coach, and then to a group introduction to coaching. This is a fun session which will give you a chance to see what coaching and our programme is all about.

This is all part of our process to make sure that coaching is right for you at this time in your life. If it isn’t, we’ll aim to help you to find other sources of support or advice. If we all decide that the Become Coaching Programme is right for you, you’ll go on a waiting list, until a place becomes available.
