What are the benefits of being Level 2 Accredited?


You’ll be an Accredited Practitioner of the tool and can use this in your learning portfolio. You’ll also have the confidence, knowledge, best practice and experience of Strengths Profile to ensure you are getting the best from the people you are working with. You will need the Level 2 Accreditation to go on to our Level 3 Master programme. You’ll also receive 10% off all future Profile and Toolkit purchases.

What's the difference between the Strengthener and Accreditation?


The Level 1 Strengthener is a lighter programme which will introduce you to Strengths Profile and how to start coaching with it. It’s just 3 hours in length so is designed to be a lighter programme – perhaps as a refresher, for managers or to see if strengths are for you. There is no formal assessment at the end.

 

The Accreditation is 17 hours of in-depth learning about the tool, it’s application and demonstrations which you can complete at your convenience. There is no cut off point although we would recommend under 3 months. There is a final sign off where you will need to complete a live debrief.

 

Please see our training programmes for more details.

Is the Accreditation accredited by a third party?


Cappfinity are the strengths experts, developers and owners of the Strengths Profile tool and we have a robust technical manual to support the reliability and validity of the tool.

The Strengths Profile tool is not accredited with a third party, as there are no professional bodies with expertise in strengths to be able to accredit the tool. Established expertise for assessment accreditation, such as with the British Psychological Society, relates to cognitive assessment or personality assessment. Strengths assessment is neither of these.

 

Cappfinity have designed and deliver our own Accredited Strengths Practitioner programmes, which have been ongoing for the last 10 years. We have approaching 3,000 accredited Strengths Practitioners who have been through our accreditation programmes.

What is the final assessment for Level 2 Online Accreditation?


Book your module 8 debrief slot on the training platform at any time after Module 4. We will pair you up with another programme participant so you can both debrief each other in the presence of a Cappfinity coach. We will you to share your Profile with the other participant and introduce you.

 

Booking debrief

No, you can still buy Profiles. We don’t make it compulsory, but it certainly helps you embed the strengths approach with your clients and teams with full knowledge of best practice and application.
