The Unveil Academy’s Coach Training Certification Course
The Unveil Coach Training Certification is the cornerstone of The Unveil Academy. Over the course of one year, our coaches will be trained in coaching disciplines, the art of seeing and hearing what is beneath their clients’ words, the integration of physiological principles and an understanding of various self- awareness and spiritual disciplines.
We created this course because it is how we work with our clients – dovetailing and interweaving various methods that, alone, are powerful – but when united, and used appropriately, can offer the most powerful, and sustainable, healing journeys for those with whom we work.
We can offer this training because our principal has spent almost two decades traversing the worlds of personal development, spirituality, coaching, psychology and physiology. Understanding how to leverage each discipline comes with practice – but it can also be taught, and that is what our coach training aims to do.
Importantly, however, the foundation of all trainings at The Unveil Academy is a profound respect for the humanness of all experience. Spending time with The Unveil Academy is to be encouraged to find your intuition, your unique way of utilizing what you learn, and your irrefutable personal style when it comes to coaching.
This course will run from September- July each year. Taking 11 months to complete, it is founded on 9 Pillars of teaching and 40 Modules in total.
The training will be entirely virtual, and offered worldwide, initially in English – though over time will be translated into various languages to support a more integrated, global approach.
The teachings are modeled on trauma- aware coaching principles that respect the tender nature of what it means to learn about the human condition and encouraging healing in others. Our goal at The Unveil Academy is to train our coaches to become centered, resourced human beings who can, from there, offer support to others.
The training itself is offered by our faculty: all expert coaches in their own right. We believe that the most effective coaches are those that not only know how to use their tools, but who have a deep connection to the nature of healing for themselves. Our trainings encourage vulnerability and openness, and our containers are created to be safe, nurturing spaces which honor that learning to be a healer isn’t just about curriculum or techniques: it is about learning how to be within oneself and one’s own human experience first such that there is capacity for you to hold the process of another.
That is what The Unveil Academy models, extols and is here to teach.
At The Unveil Academy, we pride ourselves on the quality not just of our education but of the experience of being alongside us and within one of our student cohorts. Our Integrated Coach Training Certification promises:
Equal Opportunity Access – each module will be delivered in a multi-media way, and your assignments can also be completed via audio, writing or video. Our content is virtual, accessible globally. There are no prerequisite qualifications required though if you have any questions about whether you will keep up, book a call with our Faculty members prior to purchasing/application.
Core Foundations of Coaching – we guarantee that on completion of the full course you will not just have awareness of coaching techniques, but how to structure a coaching container, identify a niche/avatar (and whether you really need to), the principles of business and your scope of practice
Certification Routes – we will be providing certificates of completion to those who complete the full academic year with us. Download our full Curriculum Brochure, or read the “Certification” section on this page for more details
Trauma Informed Containers – everything we do at The Unveil Academy is human-centered and considers the whole human. We teach that, but we also model it in all of the work we do within our training containers
Become Part of Our Family – those who complete our certification routes will become part of The Aletheia Network, and eligible to work within The Unveil Academy, on our faculty, or within The Aletheia Group (all positions by application)
The Integrated Coach Training Certification Complete Curriculum
There are several routes through our training – covered in more depth in both the “Certification Routes” and “Standalone Pillars” sections in other tabs on this page. Below, we share with you our full course curriculum – covered in 9 Pillars, with 40 Modules in total during the 11 month course.
Several Pillars are available as Standalone Courses, and combining several of the Pillars will accredit you as an Unveil Student Coach. For more details on these tracks, select either the “Certification Routes” or “Standalone Modules” tabs on this page, or download the Curriculum Brochure by clicking below.
The Schedule of Commitments
What does it look like to train with Unveil? We will have 2 calls per training week over 11 months, on Monday and Thursday. Each year, we will poll our incoming students so that we identify the best timezones for the majority and schedule calls accordingly. All calls will be recorded (with the exception of breakout session segments) and will be available for you to watch at a time that suits you. The first class for the 2022-23 cohort will be on 19 September.
Each call will be 90 minutes, up to 2 hours. Monday calls will be reserved for training, which will take the shape of recorded video content. Most Training calls will be pre-recorded and simply “released” at a specific time, though occasionally these will be live taught classes – and we will let you know which these are going to be ahead of time. All video content will have separate audio AND written transcripts available, to support however you learn best. Any time not taken up with training content during the Monday session will contain further discussions on the topic and space for Q&A.
Thursday sessions are dedicated to Q&A and practice – in the form of breakout sessions with small handfuls of students. These sessions will not be watched or recorded – but you will have the support of your peers to improve your skillset and there will be time for discussion in the Main Room. As the course progresses the format of Thursday calls will shift to allow for more live coaching (faculty coaching the students, students coaching faculty and fellow students etc.).
Coaching Hours, Homework and Community Spaces
To qualify on ANY of the tracks (outlined in the “Certification Routes” section) you must attend or watch each Training Module and you must also complete all homework (though homework will not be onerous – it is to check our teaching as much as your understanding! And it will not be due each week). You will be able to submit your homework in a way that suits you: written documents, audio recordings / voice-notes, videos. This is equal opportunity training and we want your experience to suit the way you think and the way you enjoy learning. If there’s a method we haven’t thought of – let us know! As long as our team can work it in, we’ll work with you to support your learning.
We will have a group space for sharing. This will NOT be on Facebook. Your participation there will be voluntary, though encouraged. Faculty will be present in this group, though not actively participating unless required. We will also make the space for more engagement with faculty during the year. One of our faculty members will always be on hand throughout should you require additional support.
The Unveil Academy Integrated Coach Certification Routes
Accreditation in the coaching industry is extremely well-regulated, almost over-zealously so. Any course which deals with the nature of trauma isn’t officially recognized by certain bodies. Any course within its first year is not eligible for accreditation. Whilst The Unveil Academy may seek formal accreditation in the future, ultimately, at Unveil, we are doing something entirely new, and we are aiming to have sufficient standing in the coaching community that our Certifications speak for themselves.
Each student that completes the course will receive a digital certificate, and an Unveil accreditation badge that can be used on professional materials. For those who would like a printed certificate we can also provide these on completion of all elements of your desired track (only available for Master Coaches or Certified Coaches, not Student Coaches or those who have completed Standalone Pillars).
The routes to become a Certified Unveil Coach are outlined below:
If you are interested in joining our first cohort and completing any one of these tracks – check out our admissions page today.
Three Standalone Pillar Certifications
As mentioned, The Unveil Academy’s Coach Training Certification is unique in many ways – including that we are allowing several of our Pillars to be completed outside of the year-long container. You will have access to all training recordings, though not to group sessions, for each of these Standalone Pillars. You will be required to complete all homework, though not any additional coaching hours. Completion of a Standalone Pillar will award you an Unveil Award badge to display on your professional materials.
If you would like further details for any of these Standalone Pillars, this is available on the Admissions page.
