Academic Life Coach Training

If you’re dedicated to improving the student experience, helping students develop the soft skills to build meaningful relationships and really make an impact, Academic Life Coaching is for you.

Academic Life Coaching specializes in training people to work with middle, high school, and college students. Each certified Academic Life Coach is trained to offer students the 10 session Academic Life Coaching program.

The training is for individuals, teams, and organizations who want to add a complete coaching skillset to empower students and young adults with the insights needed to lead impactful lives.​

Our Training program has been proven to help improve retention rates at Universities.

 In an effort to boost student engagement and retention, the University of Oklahoma has sent more than 60 academic advisors, professors, and administrator through CTEDU’s coach training programs. By bringing in accredited life coach training into student outreach and support programs, OU has increased freshman to sophomore retention by more than 8% over the past three years. With the help of trained and certified academic life coaches, nearly 200 more students per year stay on course to graduate.

No more disconnect between you and your students. 

Build Meaningful Relationships.
