The workshops are highly participative, using facilitated discussion, brief presentations, coaching practices and feedback. The workshops promote reflection and improvement, and encourage participants to find opportunities to apply the learning in the workplace. Participants are supported with action learning based coaching sessions and will complete three work-based learning assignments, which are assessed and verified by the ILM in order to achieve their qualification. Participants will be asked to conduct coaching sessions with 3 colleagues to coach for the duration of the programme. The coaching documentation will play an essential part in the assessment.
This programme is for managers with significant responsibility for coaching and mentoring as part of their day-to-day role, learners planning to move into a development role and those wishing to start a career as a freelance coach or mentor.
