"Thank you for another great ILM L7 workshop. You really are a gifted teacher. I always love the drive up and back to your sessions because I know I’ll walk out inspired." Vanessa, December 2019 


"Your coaching webinars are fantastic and really helped me to get back to the essence of coaching. Following on from my experience within the online coaching industry (I think it should be renamed as online marketing industry ??) I questioned my skills, my passion for it and the purpose of coaching, but your work and sessions helped me to get back to the heart of why I was passionate about it in the first place and reminded me of the power of real/true coaching ?."  Nina, August 2020

Further accreditations - next steps after your ILM level 7

Your ILM Level 7 supervision qualification is a step towards further accreditation with a professional body such as the EMCC or Association for Coaching. Further supervision hours and evidence will be required and depending on your prior experience, this could take some time to achieve. 

We have considered accrediting our courses with a professional body, but have chosen not to do this for these reasons:

  • we feel that this would limit your personal choice about what you might wish to achieve next and with which professional body - there is a wide choice and different approaches suit different people
  • having achieved a qualification, you might not be interested in accreditation and the additional work required - if you are we can explain your options 
  • a significant amount of additional learning time and coaching supervision practice would need to be added to our courses and we aware that many of you chose the ILM qualification as an initial step to professionalise your supervision that is less time consuming and therefore cheaper than other routes - we want to be pragmatic about this for you, whilst still providing a robust and ethical experience in your supervision development 
  • the additional learning time would require a substantial increase in your qualification costs and we want studying with us to be affordable.

Rest assured that we are fully committed to working alongside professional coaching bodies and we are members of both the AC and EMCC. We fully uphold their Global Code of Ethics and promote the work of all the coaching bodies with impartiality. When you study with us you will receive one year of membership with the AC and a 25% discount for individual EMCC membership.
