The CSA Diploma in Coaching Supervision
the Americas Program

Like its counterparts in CSA’s supervision training around the world, this rigorous 1-year program centers on creating a lively professional partnership with coaches - one in which they can significantly develop their range and capabilities as a coach and supervisor and return to their work resourced and stimulated. It is highly experiential in its approach while still being supported by teaching, practice and feedback in classic and current supervision theories and models.

Celebrating our 8th Year: 

With the Diploma first accredited in 2005, CSA's Faculty membership quickly grew and was able to  offer the same Program to an international audience. With a strong team it quickly established a place in the Coaching Supervision community in America. Adapting to new research and reflecting current thinking in the sector, whilst always modelling the same ethos and high standards for learning.

In the Americas program we continue the huge success of previous years, with 2024 offering  another opportunity for coaches, supervisors and leaders to develop their skills and practice by becoming accredited graduates of the CSA Diploma in Coaching Supervision.


What distinguishes the CSA Diploma programme is that in addition to a thorough training in classic supervision models, students will be trained in CSA’s Full Spectrum Model of Coaching Supervision.

The Full Spectrum Model incorporates Hawkins & Shohet’s 7-eyed model of Supervision together with core teaching and practice on the Use of Self in Supervision, multi-dimensional Presence work which utilizes the seminal ideas of Sharmer/Senge et al (TheoryU), work with subtle energies , Buddhist Psychology, and quantum physics – a living, relational perspective.

There is also teaching on Coaching Psychology and on Systems Thinking. This broad range ensures that the course is both challenging and holistic. Personal Development for Supervisors is foundational and attention is paid to bringing mature reflective practitioners into the profession.
