"Thank you for a very stimulating and thought provoking session which I have already found very helpful and for forwarding the slides and templates. I have also really enjoyed meeting the other people on the course. I shall be purchasing and studying some of the books you recommend and also looking for some willing guinea pigs!"  Catharine, April 2017

"I liked Clare's approach and to hear her speak with such knowledge has helped me to have the desire to seek future training in coaching as this was my first experience and I found it fascinating." Ben, June 2017

"I gained a better understanding of the variety of tools available and how to use them in my team and coaching. I am also understanding myself better and how I restrict myself by rigid approaches as a manager. Its given me more motivation to 'sort myself out'!" Heidi, June 2017 

"I really enjoyed fining out about psychometric tests and how they work. I will plan to use them in my future coaching and also to look at my own strengths and weaknesses. An excellent course thanks." Kate June 2017

"During the coaching workshop today I learnt things about myself and a colleague that I didn't know before, showing that I need to ask more questions and try not to lead conversations. I enjoyed the morning and got a lot out of it thank you." Carolyn, April 2017


How is the ILM Level 5 Certificate structured?

There are three units of study:

  • Understanding the Skills, Principles and Practice of Effective Management Coaching and Mentoring (one written assignment.)
  • Undertaking Coaching OR Mentoring - written submission of a detailed coaching or mentoring diary for 20 coaching hours, plus your reflective learning log
  • Reviewing Your Ability  as a Coach or Mentor (one written assignment)


Which Coaching and Mentoring Qualification is right for you?

The range of options can seem confusing. Here is a guide to help you decide which course is right for you:

  • Number of credits – in general, qualifications with a higher number of credits are seen as more valuable and in some circumstances can give exemption against other qualifications.
  • Access to practical coaching/mentoring – in order to build your skills and demonstrate your competence, you will need access to people that you can coach/mentor.  Different levels of qualification require access to different types of people.
  • Equivalent academic level – this is a guide only. Level 5 is equivalent to degree level study on the Regulatory Qualifications Framework (RQF). Our personal tutors can help you assess your suitability for different levels.   


 Payment – you have the option to pay the full fee in advance or set up a payment plan. 

  •  Level 5 Certificate in Coaching & Mentoring £1,695 plus VAT (£2,034)
  •  Level 5 Diploma in Coaching & Mentoring £2,295 plus VAT (£2,754)
