Bounce Australia is excited to be releasing two professional development programs with the Institute of Employability Professionals in the UKBounce Job Coach Certification and the PEARLS System for Outstanding Job Coaching.

This collaboration with the IEP will give frontline workers in the employability sector access to these highly credentialed training programs across the UK.

Scott Parkin FIEP, Chief Executive IEP, said, “The Coaching for Employability program ticks all the boxes for the IEP in demonstrating our commitment to professional standards.

It offers an opportunity for practitioners in the UK to pioneer the Bounce approach as part of their professional development. It is hugely beneficial not just for those looking for a career in coaching but for frontline practitioners who want to do their job better by giving them the fundamental skills you need to coach ethically and by giving them more confidence in their ability to coach successfully.”

Bounce Job Coach Certification and The PEARLS System have been designed to give employability professionals world-class coaching skills tailored specifically to working with job seekers – particularly those that are highly disengaged and disadvantaged.  

The two professional development programs give frontline workers practical and powerful wellbeing and work-readiness strategies to support, influence, and nudge job seekers towards positive employment outcomes.

“When frontline workers and managers have the right skills and mindset, they are better able to support their clients, perform well in their jobs and feel great about the impact they are having,” Bounce Founder & CEO Maria Smith explained.

“Positive wellbeing, confidence, self-awareness and resilience are essential skills employability professionals need. Our training programs help people develop these skills and show them how to apply them daily.”

Bounce professional development programs are evidence-based and feature the latest wellbeing and behaviour change science, including emotional intelligence, positive psychology and behavioural economics.

The two courses are delivered online and are available through the IEP Learning and Development platform.
