Explore and identify issues of quality in coaching.

Description of the tool

1/ Activity: CTV chat show – participants will divide themselves into four groups. 1st group – Coaches, 2nd group – European Youth Workers, 3rd group – NA staff, 4th group – Young People to be coached or who have been coached.
2/ 2 members of the team act as the talk show hosts and the other two act as reporters (making notes on the flipcharts). The chairs are organised in a circle. On chairs labels are slicked with the names of different roles people have in real work (National Agency, youth worker, international youth worker, trainer, coach, other)
1/ Participants are asked to sit on a chair with a title and role that they feel most comfortable with. The group are reminded of the areas of quality presented earlier in the week (20 min.).
2/ The debate will last for 1 hour (max). There is a selection of questions written already on card and placed in the middle of the circle. But the big question is ‘how can coaching improve the quality and experience of young people on Youth Initiatives?’. The show will try to be less of a role play and more of a learning forum. As the questions start to dry up and at regular periods invite the reporters to interject and feed back the debates key points.
Questions are on quality issues of coaching:
- How does coaching improve the quality of a project?
- What quality issues and areas of a project can be improved the coaching?
- Can a Youth Initiative be of a good quality without a coach?
- What are the challenges and pitfalls of the coaching process?
- Is the youth initiative a failure if the coaching practice and experience is a negative one?
3/ Summing up. TV show: how coaching is improving quality of a project. (10 min.)


  • Be clear and agree with the team on the questions as often as necessary.
    Consider different roles not only according the real life but as well about the level of experience.
