Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


Amos Akinwale

Undergraduate Certificate in Coaching student


Although I’ve won awards for helping young people discover their leadership potential, that doesn’t mean I know everything. There is always more to learn. I was born in Nigeria and chose to study at ICE because it provides such a flexible opportunity for development. I really enjoyed being exposed to the intellectual challenges of Cambridge and enhancing my critical thinking skills. The Coaching course has enabled me to maximise my potential and learn about my subject niche while giving me the chance to meet different people with a similar passion. I really feel it has transformed my life and helped me achieve my purpose.


Irene Tomoe Cooper

Irene has studied both the Undergraduate Certificate in Coaching, as well as the Undergraduate Diploma in Coaching


Being diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer did not stop me from living my life with gusto. I wanted to make a bigger difference and impact through coaching before I left this world so I decided to up my level of understanding, skills and confidence by enrolling in the Certificate and then the Diploma of Coaching at Cambridge ICE. It was the best decision I’ve made because I’ve made lifelong friends with my peers whom I call my “Cambridge family” and my independent coaching practice has transformed into an international business with clients in the US, Asia and Europe. Life is good.


Mabel Martinelli

Undergraduate Certificate in Coaching student


After starting a family, I returned to study partly to be a positive role model for my three, young daughters. I want them to know that they can be whoever and do whatever they want; that they matter. ICE is a magical place to study – you can feel the history in the corridors. It’s a privilege to learn here alongside like-minded adults as we all juggle our complicated lives. I’m taking Coaching to supplement my ongoing PhD in Psychotherapy that’s focused on helping people with mental health issues to flourish. Making people happy and fulfilled is such a rewarding endeavour, and this course is giving me new perspectives on how to do that.


Pablo F. Medina

Undergraduate Certificate in Coaching student


When I started my course, I was worried about how difficult it might be to balance study with my work and life commitments. I didn’t need to be. ICE is full of outstanding tutors and highly professional staff looking after and engaging students in a friendly, supportive environment. I’m an electrical engineer by training, so I decided to take a Coaching course to expand my horizons. I believe we are responsible for becoming the best versions of ourselves and studying provides us with an opportunity to achieve that. It’s an essential, lifelong journey for us all.
