The offer for Coaching and Mentoring enables you to benefit from access to Coaches and Mentors from a range of organisations within the system – this is a partnership between MPFT, University Hospitals North Midlands, North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare and the Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent CCGs (together known as Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent NHS Coaching Partnership). Please be assured that although the name of the Partnership is the Staffordshire & Stoke-on-Trent NHS Coaching Partnership, coaching remains available across the entire Trust.
As a Partnership we are also signed up as members of the wider West Midlands Coaching & Mentoring Pool (WMCMP). The WMCMP is a well-established and nationally recognised with members across all aspects of the public sector in the West Midlands, including Local Government, Fire and Rescue, Health, and University sector. Our membership of the WMCMP gives and opportunity for you to also potentially access coaches from the wider external pool and work with individuals across the region in those other public sector organisational contexts in particular circumstances.
Whether you have experienced Coaching before or are completely new to it, this Guide for new coachees is a single document that responds to and answers queries about what Coaching is, about the Pool and how to access it, and how to make the most from Coaching. It also includes information on Mentoring (note this is not clinical Mentoring).
Coaching opportunities are aimed predominantly for those with elements of leadership responsibility; however this can be at any level and does not have to be part of a formal management role.
Mentoring is a means to support staff with their professional/career development needs and career aspirations and we actively encourage employees at any level to become involved.
If you believe that Coaching or Mentoring would improve your performance and enable you to contribute further to the organisation’s success please discuss and agree your rationale for receiving Coaching or Mentoring with your manager before registering for access to the Pool. You can then complete the registration form on the online matching hub providing a clear summary of what you are looking to gain from a Coaching or Mentoring relationship.
If coaching is a suitable development option for you, please register as a Coachee on the online matching hub, if mentoring then register as a Mentee.
Your request will then be reviewed and if approved you will be given access to search for a Coach or Mentor.
If it would help to discuss your requirements and understand which is the best option for you please email email@example.com
Please note that this Coaching offer is an updated way of delivery of our formal 1-2-1 coaching offer within MPFT and is an enhancement to our Mentoring (non clinical) offer.
