Founded in 2004, the Association for Professional Executive Coaching and Supervision (APECS) is the top level membership professional body for executive coaching and supervision.

Executive Coaching differs from other forms of coaching in that it is primarily concerned with the development of the executive in the context of the needs of their organisation.

APECS defines "Executive" as a person who has a level of leadership responsibility (financial / operational / people) and/or responsibility for policy formulation and/or who makes a senior level individual contribution to the organisation.

What we do

APECS is a not-for-profit organisation which accredits executive coaches and supervisors working within the context of coaching and leadership who attain its standards. Our aims are:

  • To safeguard and develop the standards of professional coaching and supervision
  • To provide a stimulating forum for individuals engaged in buying or delivering professional coaching and supervision

APECS enables coaches, supervisors and corporate buyers of executive coaching to:

  • Meet at regular member events
  • Receive information relating to executive coaching and supervision
  • Exchange views and experience and provide mutual support and development.
