    The master thesis addresses the question of coaching as a process of systematic work aimed at recognising and gradually developing self-management, self-control and self-organisation, as seen in improved competences of young people with learning challenges and, therefore, supports the improvement of the educational process. Van Kessel (2010:16) says: »Coaching is an individualised, cooperative activity aimed at encouraging permanent self guided and self reflective learning as well as at supporting the clients's (the coachess') progress, which is in turn self-managed in order to achieve stable changes and secured responsibility. The coach (the person leadingthe process ˡ) is an expert in accelerating the formation of activities which will lead to achieving the goals and guiding the client towards better learning and development.« The master thesis is based on the theoretical basis and degrees of narrative coaching which address self-discovery, motivation, planning and action approach; and elements of assistance models for co-creating youth programmes as discussed by Harris and Graham (1997), Zimmerman (2002), Dawsonon and Guere (2004); and Čačinovič Vogrinčič (2011) integrated in KLIK (as a coaching list of individual competences), our own assistance model. The model combines the competence integration of young people with challenges in the learning process, a more effective self-management of activities and learning as well as a more suitable emotional functioning. The purpose of the empirical section was to determine its applicability for working with young people with learning challenges. The study group included a group of young people between the ages of fifteen and eighteen. We used the action research approach, the quantitative analysis of collected materials (within the process of implementing the coaching meetings), immediate evaluation of the above mentioned process (conducted both by the counsellor and the participants) and short written reflections (guided by questions) on individual sessions. Collected data gave us the opportunity to analyse the process of each individual's development (Case study) and an insight into the appropriateness of contents, themes and the structure of sessions as well as the development of the KLIK model. Results confirm the reasonableness of its use for a complete and systematic approach to working with youngsterswithlearningdifficulties.
