CHAMPS COACH CHARTER
CHAMPS Academy and CHAMPS Franchise Coaches are committed to maintaining and promoting excellent practice in the CHAMPS Academy: Kids Confidence, Life Skills and Mental Health Coaching and Services.
CHAMPS Franchise Coaches adhere to the elements, principles and CHAMPS Coach Development to continually promote best practices as per ongoing training and support and the safeguarding of clients (children/teens).
The CHAMPS Coach Charter (Code of Ethics) sets the expectation of best practice in the CHAMPS: Kids Confidence, Life Skills and Mental Health Coaching and Services to provide appropriate guidelines, accountability and quality standards of conduct for all Franchisees.
1: Personal 1:1 Coaching
A: Accurately and honestly represent yourself as a professional CHAMPS Academy Coach.
B: All Coaching is confidential and not to be shared with any third party. Where the coaching is between the CHAMPS Franchise Coach and an older child (teenager/young adult) the coaching reminders and any follow up will be sent direct to their email (pre-agreed with parent), with a general update of progress provided to the parent by email. Where there may have been something specific shared that would be helpful and appropriate for the parent to know, you agree to gain your client’s (child/teen) agreement first before revealing the details.
C: Any records regarding clients, including electronic files and communications, are stored, and disposed of, in a manner that promotes confidentiality, security and privacy.

E: CHAMPS Franchise Coaches set and keep clear, appropriate and culturally sensitive boundaries relating to interactions, physical or otherwise, with clients.
