The refined ABCCCP Competencies

At a meeting on the 28th of June 2019, the ABCCCP discussed the competencies that had been adopted by the institution when it was formed. This was in answer of the question: What’s so African about the ABCCCP competencies.

This is what we came up with early this year as a board after discussions. We are very excited about this new set and how they can contribute to evolving coaching practice, in a way that is aligned to the indigenous practices on the continent while underpinned by modern research.

The competencies remain the same across different designations, with varying knowledge and experience elements per designation.

What is Consulting?

Consulting is a process of engaging with a client by an expert with competencies related to a client challenge, with an intention to co-create a bespoke solution thereto.

What is Coaching Psychology?

A Coaching Psychologist is a certified and registered psychologist who also specialises in and has studied coaching, and uses it as a modality.

It is essential that the Coaching Psychologist is registered and recognised as a psychologist, and has ALSO sudied coaching!

The SKAP Model of Accreditation

ABCCCP is establishing itself to be the Assessment Quality Partner within the qualifications framework of a representative country.

Suffice it to say our belief is that qualifications are at the centre of competency frameworks and we base our accreditation system on the SKARP Model, which places qualifications of evidencing thereof at the centre of the quality assurance process for practitioners.However as you will notice, experience, attributes and purpose are introduced to ensure a more balanced approach.
