    Abstract

    This reports attempts to critically review all relevant literature informing definitions and conceptualisations of 'profession', 'professional practice' and 'professionalisation'. It also identifies the 'traits/characteristics' of professionalisation in relation to coaching in a UK context and assesses the 'current state of play' in, including identification of key enablers and barriers, and propose a way forward for establishing a 'coaching profession'.
