Reason for enrolling on your course with us - Wanting to undertake some training that would be complementary to my future career as a teacher and that would be useful in future leadership and management roles.

Benefits in terms of career transition - Coaching course built upon my existing skills from my time in the Army.  The flexibility in the course allowed me to study using my Graduated Resettlement Time.  

Comments about quality of provision by inspired2learn - Excellent support throughout the course.  The four day workshop was extremely helpful.  I2L would provide very quick advice on my assignment as I progressed and face-to-face meetings with my tutor were also helpful to ensure I was doing the right thing.  I2L's location in Devizes is also very useful for anyone resettling from Salisbury Plain area!

The ILM L7 in Executive Coaching provides a recognised and respected qualification in the competitive world of coaching and forms the critical path to enable my transitioning out of the RAF.

I have been really impressed with Clare Smale of I2L – the training has been enjoyable, informative and well-presented; moreover, the continuous support and encouragement that she offers has been excellent.

  • Advertised in QUEST therefore recognised reputable product
  • Initial contact with inspired to learn was receptive and supportive to my individual requirement
  • Excellent value for money with cost covered by one ELC which was straightforward to administer

Benefits in terms of career transition:

  • Interactive on-line learning and access to CMI resources is fantastic as well as the module guides that are provided making learning varied and interesting
  • I have recommended Inspired2learn to several colleagues due to their training delivery method, how they understand the military environment and more importantly the support provided during a critical time of your career which carries significant pressure and uncertainty on an individual as they transition.


Name:  Dave Worden

Rank:   Left as Colonel in June 2017

Service: Army

Reason for enrolling on your course with us: ELCAS registered provider with strong positive feedback

Benefits in terms of career transition: Helping me move beyond my current experience as a leader by developing my ability as a coach.  This has allowed me to develop a variety of new skills and move towards a portfolio career model.

Comments about quality of provision by inspired2learn: The quality of the training and the level of individual support I2L have provided has been exceptional.  I have been given the right balance of time and encouragement to keep on track to achieve the qualification.  My tutor has a tremendous amount of personal experience as a professional coach and a deep theoretical knowledge of coaching; I am being trained by an expert who knows their subject in detail and can teach it extremely effectively.  I cannot recommend I2L highly enough.


Name: Anthony Pearce

Rank: Sergeant

Service: Royal Air Force

Reason for enrolling on your course with us: Flexible learning with direct access to CMI learning tools and resources, flexible payment options and a civilian recognised qualification.

Benefits in terms of career transition: Many of us have a great deal of managerial experience and knowledge whilst operating within the Military. By achieving a civilian recognised qualification, this solidifies and endorses the expertise we have and effectively promotes this to civilian recruiters.

Comments about quality of provision by inspired2learn: With numerous companies offering various management qualifications, I hit the jackpot with Barrie and his team at inspired2learn. From enrolment to completion I have received guidance and support throughout. Even to the point where a tutor was selected that reflected the time zone of my detachment to the Falklands, which led to easier contact with a highly experienced tutor that supported my questions. Overall, I have found Inspired2learn to be professional, patient, flexible and extremely patient and supportive required for supplying a service to military personnel. I cannot recommend them highly enough.


Name: Patrine James

Rank: LCpl

Reason for enrolling on your course with us: Found your course on the internet. I was happy with the reviews and also happy that the course was so local to me and I can use ELCAS.

Benefits in terms of career transition: I am hoping to be HR Manager and having a coaching qualification on my CV will help my chances of landing the ideal job.

Comments about quality of provision by inspired2learn: Quality has been great so far. My tutor, Clare, is very experienced and approachable.



Major General (Retired) W H Moore CBE

Former Master General of the Ordnance (Army Board)

I left the Army early in 2011 as a two star on the Army Board. I completed the Corporate Governance week as part of my CTP, as this was the most appropriate course before taking up my new role as CEO of The Portman Estate. 

The estate is one of the largest property companies in London. I stood down as CEO in 2018 after nearly 7 years. During my time as CEO I brought in two Executive Coaches to work with our directors and executive team. I was so impressed by the results that I embarked on the ILM Level 7 course with Inspired2learn. I now run my own coaching, leadership development and consulting business.

The coaching qualifications are a natural extension of all that we do in the military. There is no doubt that the military’s leadership development and man management skills give the military a head start over most of our civilian counterparts. This is certainly the case from my perspective as the previous CEO of the Portman Estate. In the military we coach and mentor our teams on a regular basis, and this is a great foundation from which to start more formal coaching qualifications.

More and more businesses are employing coaches, whether internally or from an external coaching firm. A coaching qualification as part of the transition out of the Forces would provide a helpful introduction to the commercial world and where no commercial experience is required. As coaches gather more knowledge, they would have the potential to coach at board and senior leader level. A coaching qualification when combined with already present leadership development skills would add value to any business.

Inspired2learn provides a terrific service. They are very supportive and always offer just too much for you to absorb, but only just - so you strive to stay up with them. I attend many courses with various other providers. Other students on the same course as me but with different providers do not receive anywhere near the tuition, help and support that I enjoy. Our tutor (and supervisor) is challenging, responsive, supportive and a terrific fount of knowledge. Our whole course has learned a huge amount from her. That she does it in a fun and relaxed manner makes her tuition enjoyable and rewarding.
