As with all ILM accredited programmes, participants will need to complete the post-programme activity in order to achieve their ILM Level 5 Certificate or Diploma in Effective Coaching and Mentoring.

These elements have been designed in order to show to ILM that you are able to put the skills and techniques learned on the programme into practice. We provide full support and guidance in completing these final elements.

We ask you to come prepared with issues which you are currently experiencing that you would be happy to discuss and be coached on.

Come prepared with 2 or 3 scenarios at work that you may apply your coaching learning to during your training. See this as a training pitch to get prepared before returning to the office.

We also send out a short document containing questions and exercises which will help our coaches understand you better and work with you in order to receive the best training.

To achieve this ILM qualification, participants will have to complete the following post-course activities:

3 x work-based assignments need to be completed. We offer 1 year of support included in the price, but you have up to 3 years from attendance and registration to submit them. Embedded in the assignments, the Certificate will require delegates to complete 18 hours of logged coaching with 2-3 people. The Diploma will require delegates to complete 54 hours of logged coaching with 4-9 people.

Additional tutor guided learning will take the format of book and video reviews with ongoing tutor guidance and support via phone, Skype, Zoom or face-to-face.

Optional: Self-initiated 2 x 45 min executive coaching sessions per delegate to offer a coaching best practice view.

Each participant on this business coaching course will be issued with a workbook to assist them both during and after the course, which will contain information, guidance and forms to assist with the coaching sessions.
