Henley Business School has launched a new MSc in Coaching & Behavioural Change as part of its executive education programme.

The MSc in Coaching & Behavioural Change will help successful participants understand how to align coaching objectives with business objectives, equipping them to help executives work through challenging leadership issues: developing authentic leadership skills or creating behavioural change to support a new organisational direction.

Dr Patricia Bossons, programme director, said: “This is a unique programme. We already have an outstanding record with our ‘Henley Certificate in Coaching’ and this programme enables coaching professionals to go further and proactively support effective leadership by emphasising the organisational context for coaching and including a business management MBA-style challenge as an integral part of the course.”

The part-time programme includes a number of residential workshops, complemented by written assignments and including modules on ‘Advanced Coaching Practice’, ‘Group Dynamics and Systems Thinking’, ‘Becoming a Reflective Practitioner’ and ‘Manager as Investigator’; together with a management challenge and a personal leadership development project. Participants will progress through a Postgraduate Certificate (including the Henley Certificate of Coaching) and accredited NLP Practitioner training provided by ITS, a Postgraduate Diploma in Coaching and Behavioural Change and culminating in the MSc in Coaching & Behavioural Change. They will build mastery and confidence in leadership coaching and develop their ability to use coaching to drive business objectives.

The MSc in Coaching & Behavioural Change programme is part of the highly successful range of programmes and services offered by Henley Coaching Services.

The programme is the newest addition to Henley Business School’s executive education offering, which includes both customised and tailored qualification programmes. These management courses and leadership courses are highly practical, designed to create immediate impact and make a real difference back in the work environment.

Optima Provides Stylish And Safe Glass Partitioning Solutions For The Schools Of England As Part Of The Governments Building Schools For The Future Initiative


The government Building Schools for the Future scheme aims to rebuild 250 schools per year over the next ten years. Its main goal is to have every one of the 3,500 secondary schools in England completely refurbished by the year 2020. Building Schools for the Future is the largest ever school buildings investment programme.

Optima has been working closely with many schools, Local Education Authorities (LEAs), contractors and architects across the country to help provide outstanding and inspirational educational environments which will supply the children of England with comfortable, safe and clean surroundings in which they can develop and flourish.

Optima has developed atrium glazing, glass partitioning, glass doors and custom advanced drywall for several schools across England. Optima restored the tired teaching rooms of Bishop Ramsey School, Ruislip, where a high level of acoustics was required. Optima’s Revolution 97 mullion-free double glazed system was the ideal solution.

For enhanced safety, fire rated screens were installed within all fire escape routes and corridors within the school for safety, achieving a combination of 30 minutes and 60 minutes integrity and insulation. Optima hopes to be able to install fire rated screens into every school in England, to safeguard the lives of millions of children.

Optima has also recently completed work on refurbishing classrooms and school buildings at Mundy Primary School in Heanor, Derbyshire. Here, Optima implemented its Mistral partitioning system due to its quick fitting time which meant the refurbishment could be completed without having to close the school during important term time. 

A recent technical report published by PriceWaterhouseCoopers revealed that the BSF scheme is making excellent progress across England. The report also found that both staff and pupils at refurbished schools are satisfied that the changes have greatly helped to improve their learning environment. The scheme continues to deliver huge benefits for teaching and learning alike.

Optima will continue to work with educational establishments to improve standards for young minds.
