Coaching & Capacity Building

The Genesis Programme is committed to achieving the best outcomes possible for the children, families and communities we work with.

In order to achieve this we undertake a range of initiatives. These include:

  • Group Leader Recruitment and Training
  • Capacity Building for Group Leaders
  • Peer Coaching for Group Leaders
  • Local Programme Evaluations
  • Promoting and Supporting Accreditation for our Group Leaders

All Group Leaders delivering the Incredible Years® Programmes are encouraged and supported to participate in Peer Coach sessions with an accredited coach with the objective of them becoming accredited in their respective programme.

This enables Group Leaders to reflect on their practice in a supportive environment, set goals for future sessions and practice skills to introduce to their group.

It also gives Group Leaders an opportunity to receive support with the accreditation process and get feedback on their sessions.

Combining coaching with the training that our Group Leaders receive, improves fourfold (relative to training alone) the standard of programme delivery and therefore improves the outcomes for the children, families and communities we work with.

Furthermore, we engage locally and nationally with a range of service providers, agencies and third level institutions to establish baseline data, evaluate our programmes and identify areas/gaps in the services we provide to allow us plan for future programmes and interventions. These have included:

  • Working collaboratively with Archways to conduct the Child Well-Being Study – ‘How are they doing?’
  • Working to support the National ABC Programme Evaluation
  • Partnering with Maynooth University on the ENRICH Research Programme
