ILM Level 5 Certificate in Coaching & Mentoring

The ILM’s Level 5 Certificate in Coaching & Mentoring qualification aims to provide practising managers with the knowledge, skills and confidence to perform effectively as management coaches or mentors and to gain an awareness and practical ideas of how to successfully introduce coaching into the workplace.

This powerful and very practical programme uses up-to-the minute research, tools and techniques to develop the twin themes of individual coaching competence and coaching in an organisational context.  Explores the management of coaching as well as developing the skills, confidence and competence of those coaching at a managerial level.

Who is it for?  Typically, this coach qualification programme delivers practical benefits for:

  • Middle managers who are regularly coaching/ mentoring as part of their everyday management activity;
  • HR/ OD/ L&D professionals who regularly coach line managers and/ or are seeking to introduce coaching programmes and develop a coaching culture within the organisation;
  • Independent consultants who are coaching/ will be coaching at middle-management level within organisations and who require validation of skills;
  • Experienced first-line managers who may be “stepping up” into a middle-management role where coaching will form part of their everyday management activity.

This Level 5 qualification is broadly comparable academically with Year 2 of a 3-year degree programme and our programmes feature the latest ILM curriculum.

  • 6-days of tutor-led workshops (3 x 2-day modules) plus telephone tutorials:
