At Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences an occupational faculty member and coaching expert, designed a coaching technique for students who are at risk for failing in their fieldwork program.

Important elements of this technique, such as the critical interview and the self-assessment for students, based on the COPM, offer students the unique opportunity to re-assess themselves after a period of time. Another occupational faculty member participates as a coach in the Honours Degree Program of the School of Health Care Studies. She converted this method into a talent-coaching technique for excellent students, who try to reach the level of an Honours Degree.

We hope to prepare these students for a life-long career as innovative and excellent professionals in Healthcare. Thus far, the talent-coaching technique has proven to be a useful intervention for occupational therapists and other healthcare workers by supporting their own capacities to develop innovate healthcare solutions.
