Coaching: Intensive Skills Course (5 Days)
Plus Diploma/ Certificate in Coaching (ILM)

What you will gain from training to coach

Coaching has its own unique set of skills, harder to do well than they first appear. Whether you want to develop your coaching skills within an organisation or as an independent coach working with a range of clients, this course will equip you with state-of-the-art skills and knowledge.

The course will help you get to grips with the neuroscience and psychology behind coaching, and why it is so powerful as an agent of change. You will learn how coaching can build engagement in teams and individuals – and how it links with successful organisation performance. You will also take away the practical tools with which to coach; how to work with people on their blocks and barriers and engage their motivation; how to ask the powerful questions that both challenge and support and how to deal with strong emotions and give feedback effectively.

This course can be taken as stand-alone training, or as part 1 of the ILM L5 or L7 Certificate of Diploma coaching qualification.  This course is run in association with Linden Learning and Consult East.

Part 1: The five-day intensive skills course

This can be taken as a stand-alone event or as part 1 of the ILM L5 or L7 Certificate or Diploma coaching qualification. It will be a rigorous blend of theory and practice and highly interactive. You will be expected to work in both coach and client roles on real issues with ample opportunities for carefully managed practice, observation and feedback. There will be a comprehensive manual of hand-outs as well as a copy of Jenny Rogers’ Coaching Skills: A Handbook and full MBTI assessment.

Part 2: developing a portfolio for assessment by the ILM

At this stage you have the option to pursue either a Certificate or Diploma in Coaching & Mentoring, accredited by ILM.

This takes the learning into more depth, with a personal learning journey for developing coaches. We will provide you with an experienced coaching supervisor who will give you one to one supervision in developing your practice as a coach in addition to 3 face to face workshops, 3 virtual seminars, 3 best practice events and supported self-study. This period of study and practice usually lasts over 12-18 months whilst you build up your coaching hours and complete your assignments.

Part 1 and Part 2 together are accredited at post-graduate level with the Institute of Leadership and Management.

Participant requirements

Suitable for both experienced coaches wanting to benchmark their practice against ILM criteria, and those new to coaching.
