Coaching and Mentoring
This qualification is designed to give managers of any level a solid foundation in management coaching and mentoring.

A skilled coach or mentor is an invaluable asset to any organisation. As well as increasing confidence and motivation, ILM’s coaching and mentoring qualifications improve management performance, conflict resolution and communication and interpersonal skills. There are three assignments to complete and most learners will complete the qualification within 9 months. An online skills practice session will support you with practical coaching skills.

For this qualification learners are required to evidence 18 hours of coaching and/or mentoring practice with a minimum of and maximum of three clients.  You will also be required to record one hour of coaching practice observed by your manager or supervisor. We can signpost you to a coaching supervisor for the purposes of your qualification and this may attract an additional cost between yourself and the supervisor.
