The Knowledge Portal showcases sources of original knowledge creation from organisations involved in coaching. Such organisations are invited to provide a short description of themselves, their activities for knowledge creation and signpost users, using links, to the coaching knowledge repository on their websites.
The principles for inclusion of knowledge are:
- The Knowledge Portal is used to disseminate the sources of existing original research or knowledge creation in coaching. The aim is not to create new knowledge. It is to be a depository that links the current sources of orginal coaching knowledge and connects the different parts of the “system” of coaching knowledge providers, which span diverse areas. It covers varying sources of different types of coaching knowledge including research, theorising, coaching standards and ethics etc.
- Emphasis is on showcasing diversity in the sources of original coaching knowledge and this will be a platform from which gaps in research and knowledge in coaching can be identified and explored.
- If appropriate, the identification of this distinct system,creating original coaching knowledge, can be utilised in the future to support the recognition of coaching as a profession.
- The Knowledge Portal is not to be used for advertising, commercial or profit purposes. It is intended to be a neutral and impartial, free resource for the benefit of those involved in coaching.
- Those contributing to the Knowledge Portal confirm that they have the necessary copyright and other intellectual property rights and have complied with any other legal requirements.
- The Knowledge Portal is self-regulated and the Future of Coaching Collaboration (FCC) trusts that contributors respect and honour these principles for knowledge inclusion and act in the spirit of collaboration. Contributors to the Knowledge Portal agree to do so and to act professionally through discussion, open mindedness and by building agreement.
