Benefits of Notion's programme

  • It's Flexible - Complete just the first half of the programme and be certified to deliver coaching sessions within your organisation, or you can complete the full ILM7 Certificate.  If you choose to complete the 1st half initially, you can still 'upgrade' to the full ILM7 Certificate at anytime over the following 2 years.
  • It's Strategic - The 'open' programme has been uniquely designed for Senior HR/L&D professionals. This means there will be a specific strategic and commercial edge to the training, as we will also explore how to best utilise coaching and develop coaching cultures within organisations successfully and in a way that is measurable.  It also means your cohort peer group will only be made up of like-minded senior professionals. We also offer full in-house programmes based around your own organisational strategy.
  • It's Results Driven - With a real focus on return on investment our pragmatic style means you will be able to see a real application back at your organisation.  Enabling you to proactively support the adoption of a coaching culture and deliver one to one formal coaching sessions to the very highest levels alongside ‘on the job’ coaching within your management area. 
  • It's not Generic - This is not a generic training programme as it is taught by some of the UK’s most experienced and well respected Executive Business Coaches.  All the theory is therefore translated into real life coaching examples and case studies, adding a wealth of context and knowledge to aid an exciting learning experience. 





"Notion are a great company, there is a very personal approach in the courses. It’s all about engagement & implementation. With a real focus on your development, growth and challenging yourself."

Victoria Waters, Head of L&D , LaSer UK








"I want to let you know how pleased I have been with the decision to choose Notion. I procrastinated over which Coaching course to take for 2 years - none of them came with Amazon stars and independent user reviews. I finally took the plunge, and the experience has been everything I had hoped for."

Managing Director, Morgan Stanley

We Offer Maximum Flexibility - So You Can Design Your Perfect Programme

At Notion we believe that training should have an impact so we have broken down our ILM 7 programme into 3 modules offering you complete flexibility to build a programme that best suits your timeframes and specific needs, whilst keeping the door open to upgrade at different points to a formal postgraduate level qualification should that be of interest. 

Each module is a stand alone programme and link together to form the ILM7 Certificate for Executive and Senior Level Coaches and Mentors (formally known as the ILM Level 7 Certificate in Executive Coaching and Mentoring).

Don't just take our word for it here's what some of our clients have to say...


"The coaching circles were very useful as a small group we got on well and learnt from each other, in fact, we are still meeting now even after the coaching has finished. It was an eye opener and has given me lots of different insights." 

Brian Wark, HR Director DS Smith Packaging

“Notion’s programme has been carefully constructed by experts in their field. They have brought to life a subject that everyone thinks they know about but which in reality is a complex and demanding discipline." 

Anonymous, HR Director

"What made me choose Notion was the phrase 'coaching in the moment' and one of my highlights of the programme was the pragmatic approach - you recognise that people don't always have time for formal coaching sessions. It was all very straight forward which meant that I saw members of the team putting things into practice straight away." 

Kate Naylor, HR Director, Hitachi Rail Europe

"I’d highly recommend the ILM7 Executive Coaching & Leadership Mentoring as it gives you access and understanding of excellent tools and techniques to become a successful coach. The lecturers are great, you get a lot of opportunity to practice and the cohort is of a similar level”
