About the Programme

With commercial pressures facing organisations there needs to be additional focus on how you can leverage performance and potential across your teams. Organisations that have a coaching culture are shown to have more engaged employees and high levels of team and individual performance. One of the ways to support this is through the up-skilling of leaders to become coaches.

This programme covers a large part of the content and tools of the ILM7 Certificate however excludes most of the research and written work required for the full academic ILM7 programme. It is in effect a pragmatic version of the ILM programme for those that won’t realistically have time to complete the independent study and written elements, but want to be trained as coaches to the same high standards, with no compromises or ‘dumbing down’.

The expectation on completing this course is that you could spend a set number of hours a month working formally as a coach within your organisation (many of our clients request that each internal coach commits to a minimum of 4 hours a month to the ‘coaching pool’, although the actual time spent will be set by you and not us!). Your business will gain greatly from having coaches who can work to support individuals that previously might not have had exposure to coaching.


“The 4 days of workshops, supervised and unsupervised coaching circles along with the fantastic materials and toolkits have been undoubtedly the most professional and satisfying personal development experiences of my last 10 years at UCL. Knowledgeable, helpful and extraordinarily gifted coach-leaders have enhanced the experience hugely.”
