ILM Level 5 Certificate in Effective Coaching and Mentoring **CLOSED**

Registration closed
21 September 2021 - 10:00am to 16 November 2021 - 12:30pm

We have redesigned this very popular coaching and mentoring qualification to deliver the sessions via zoom. The 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. The skills practice sessions 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 two 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.

Following a one hour Induction session on Tuesday 21 September 2021 from 10am -11am, the programme will consist of the following 2.5 hour webinars which will run from 10am – 12.30pm on the allocated dates:
