In House and one to one ILM Level 7 Coaching

ILM LogoIn House and one to one Level 7 Certificate in Executive Coaching and Mentoring

This in-house or one to one programme and qualification is designed for senior managers or HR/OD professionals who want to develop their expertise and credibility in the fields of coaching and mentoring, or to establish coaching on an organisational level.  In addition the course is particularly suited for in-house and professional coaches and mentors who have already completed the ILM 5, or equivalent level of coach training, and who are now seeking to enhance and accredit their experience with a higher level, nationally recognised, qualification.

What distinguishes this ILM 7 Certificate from others is the broad syllabus.  In addition to covering core coaching principles and frameworks, the course incorporates coaching psychology, creative approaches to coaching and current thinking on presence, energy and developing reflective inquiry.  This eclectic blend ensures that the course is both challenging and holistic.

The programme is run by Gill Graves one of the most experienced and qualified coaches in the UK and author of ‘Coaching With Impact at Work’ available from Amazon. See Gill’s CV. We also run this qualification programme on a one to one basis which allows more flexibility of timing and content.  Please note at present there are no plans to offer this as an open programme.


Overview of the Qualification

There are three mandatory units to this qualification.

The first unit, ‘Understanding the context of coaching and mentoring in a strategic business environment’ aims to enable learners to critically review the role and contribution of coaching and mentoring at a senior level.

The second unit, ‘Reviewing own ability as a management coach or mentor’ will give them the tools and techniques to review and improve their own practice and understand how the client’s organisation culture and structure affects the coaching and mentoring relationship.
