Who is this qualification for?

This is the ideal qualification for managers with significant responsibility for coaching and mentoring as part of their day-to-day role. It is also designed to develop learners planning to move into a development role or start a career in coaching and mentoring. 

What are the benefits to participants?

In addition to a recognised qualification, you will build your coaching and mentoring skills, be supported in coaching and mentoring in your organisation and be able to review and reflect on your experience, as well as plan for future development. As part of the course, to build your understanding of coaching and mentoring and help support and develop you, you will also receive mentoring and coaching, as well as access to online ILM resources.

What are the benefits to your business?

Based on a recent survey of learning and development managers, 95% see direct benefits of coaching to their organisation and 96% see direct benefits for the individual being coached. Because the qualification is work based, the learning and assessment is practical and tied into real workplace projects and performance, meaning you see an immediate and lasting benefit the moment the learning begins.
