MBTI® Foundation Programme

The first step to personal development

The MBTI Foundation Programme is your starting point for using the MBTI Step I instrument, the world’s most popular questionnaire for measuring personality Type.

MBTI logoThis MBTI training programme equips you with the skills, knowledge and confidence to apply

 the MBTI framework to everyday business challenges. It also presents you with your own powerful personal development experience. You’ll become immersed in personality Types, learn to appreciate individual differences, strengths and blindspots and be well coached to apply this understanding to enable groups and individuals to work at their best.

The MBTI Foundation Programme takes individuals with no prior experience on a journey of self-

discovery, supported by a wealth of expertly designed exercises and resources. They also receive a good grounding in practices encouraged by the British Psychological Society and other bodies that seek to uphold standards. 

This programme is Continuing Coach Education (CCE) accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF). Anyone who completes the course will receive:

  • 8 ICF Resource Development hours
  • 16 ICF Core Competency hours

This programme keeps traditional ‘lecturing’ to an absolute minimum and does not compress valuable content to 'tick boxes'. It embraces the value of experiential learning throughout its face-to-face modules. The course is delivered by experienced MBTI practitioners who are both expert trainers and coaches to participants.

Mindful that we each have different learning styles, this course applies accelerated learning techniques that combine distance learning, interactive exercises, and an engaging mix of group and individual work. Each participant receives individual coaching on their feedback skills during practice sessions. They also practise individual real-life fieldwork under the expert guidance of experienced facilitators, building participant's pride and confidence.

I have been on many courses – this rates as one of the best ever!
