"I would just like to thank you for all your support throughout the ILM coaching qualification. I found the webinars really helpful and allowed me to connect with learners at a time I was feeling isolated. Your responsiveness to assignment submissions was a huge source of motivation and kept the momentum going. I can’t recommend I2L enough and am hugely grateful that I chose you for this qualification. Everything has been very smooth and supportive, and I feel I have learned a lot from both the theory and the coaching hours and reflective learning. I do struggle with self study and theory, but found with I2L there was a helpful set of resources and templates available, as well as physical support, so this minimised the issues I find with self study. I now have clarity on the distinctions between coaching and mentoring, and a language and set of tools I didn’t have before. I have a deeper experience and am better able to articulate my feelings about coaching. I am also more aware of the need and value of supervision, co-coaching and continual learning, as well as the professional bodies, ethics and competencies. I am able to market myself differently and coach with more confidence." Michael, November 2020

"Clare and i2L have been a fantastic organisation with whom to undertake my ILM level 7 certificate. From the very first “exploratory” phone call, I had with Clare, she was professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and approachable. I have never felt that anything was too much to ask, and she really supported my learning at every step. The advent of COVID meant that i2L had to adapt how the face-to-face teaching element of the course needed to be delivered, this was implemented swiftly, and all of the webinars have been an excellent substitute. (I think you could charge more for the outside learners). I found the i2L web-based resources very useful. I found all of the e mail support sharing tips and resources valuable. Clare has encouraged networking and peer support, which I have found really useful. The group coaching supervision was also excellent, and I found it both challenging and supportive. It has been hard work, but very well worth the effort. I think that the learning package you deliver is great value for money, and you go above and beyond to support your learners. Thank you so much!"

ILM Qualification courses reviews
"Loved everything about the training, the group, Clare’s leadership and guidance of the sessions. Have learnt so much and have so many techniques to use now. Compared notes with a colleague who has been doing her training through our organisation and she is gutted! She said they have just flogged GROW to death with no additional techniques to use alongside it! So fired up!!" Sally, February 2020
"The programme exceeded my objectives. It delivered a terrific balance between theory and pragmatism. The tutor kept us healthily engaged throughout and always offered opportunities to further our own learning or pass on the output from recent seminars that she had attended. The best thing about this course was the way in which it was run. I work for myself. The programme has provided me with both the knowledge and the confidence to approach any business with a coaching offer. Friendly, informative, challenging and all with excellent support in place. Thank you" William, September 2019
“I really enjoyed the 4 days spent with Clare and our wonderful cohort. Clare is full of knowledge and experience that will benefit any coach regardless of the amount of experience you have. The course was full of amazing content and kept us engaged and thinking from the moment the course started to the moment it finished. The course was an ideal mix of theoretical explanation, practical application of tools and models together with the invaluable advice that Clare can offer you. Cannot compliment Inspired2learn enough” Steve, January 2019
"I went to a networking workshop event with another provider last week and it became apparent that we receive far more support from Clare at inspired2learn than other students who are studying for ILM 5 and ILM 7 with alternative providers – so a huge thank you, Clare. One of the workshops was an introduction to NLP and again, it became clear that we had much more NLP input from Clare's workshops." Bill, November 2018
Further accreditations - next steps after your ILM qualification
Your ILM coaching & mentoring qualification is a step towards further accreditation with a professional body such as the EMCC or Association for Coaching. Further coaching 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 the following 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 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 coaching 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 coaching 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.
