Inclusivity and Social Impact

At Optimus Coach Academy inclusivity is one of our core values and we believe in making coach training a more inclusive place where everyone feels they are valued. Equally, we believe in making coaching more accessible for those who traditionally can’t access it.

We currently have a number of pro bono partnerships with organisations including: women’s centres, charities supporting people with parenting, returning to work and starting businesses.

We equally work with organisations such as Yes Futures to support our coaches to work with young people.

If you are a third sector organisation or charity who want to access pro bono support from our trainees and alumni contact us directly at hello@optimuscoachacademy.com currently we have given 1000s of hours of pro bono support through these partnerships.

Supporting a number of charities by donating a % of our profits to charity. 

As a former senior leader in education our founder Ruth Kudzi has developed some projects to support teachers by offering both free sessions for educators and an online program for coaches: this served 100s of educators in the Summer of 2022. 

We're in the process of developing resources and support for young people who would not normally be able to access coaching.


Encouraging our students to think about the wider impact of their coaching with workshops on diversity, inclusivity, neurodiversity and building inclusive businesses: these are as standard and available to students and alumni. 


We are committed to developing our social impact and actively engage with opportunities for ourselves and our students: We believe that coaching has such a power to change the way we operate as a society and want to be part of the change.

We offer a small number of full scholarships and assisted places to our diplomas to apply you need to;

  • Have been on job seekers allowance (or equivalent) for at least a year

  • Are from a group which is underrepresented in the coaching industry

To apply you need to email hello@optimuscoachacademy.com being clear about how you will benefit from the coach training and the wider impact you will have.
