What is ILM Level 5 Coaching?

A coach and mentor with a group of young employees

Achieving an ILM Level 5 coaching qualification is ideal for those who provide coaching and mentoring for others within their business, or for those who are thinking about starting their own coaching company and becoming a provider of business coaching to others.

For you as an individual, completing the course and assignments - and thereby achieving an ILM Effective Coaching and Mentoring Level 5 qualification - will provide many benefits. Not only will you have a far greater understanding of yourself as a provider of coaching and mentoring, but you will be in a better position to assess your skills and determine which areas you need to address, including what works well, and what not so well. You will also gain a greater insight into the role of coaching within an organisation, as well as guidance on how to plan, deliver and critically review your future coaching and mentoring sessions which you facilitate.

As an employer, there are a number of advantages for having competent coaches within the company who can provide effective coaching and mentoring to others. Developing a coaching and mentoring culture within your business, by having employees who have the skills, knowledge and understanding to provide coaching to their colleagues or those working under them, can provide tremendous gains for a business. A few of the most common of these include higher productivity and morale, a boost to idea generation and creativity, more effective teamworking, and lower staff turnover and absenteeism.

Accreditation


ILM 5 Accreditation

Participants will be eligible to receive ILM letters after their name; either AMInstLM (Affiliate/Associate Member Institute Leadership & Management) or MInstLM (Member Institute Leadership & Management).

As with all ILM accredited programmes, participants will need to complete the post-programme activity in order to achieve their ILM Level 5 Certificate or Diploma in Effective Coaching and Mentoring.

These elements have been designed in order to show to ILM that you are able to put the skills and techniques learned on the programme into practice. We provide full support and guidance in completing these final elements.



Pre-Course Activity


ILM 5 Pre-Course Activity

We ask you to come prepared with issues which you are currently experiencing that you would be happy to discuss and be coached on.

Come prepared with 2 or 3 scenarios at work that you may apply your coaching learning to during your training. See this as a training pitch to get prepared before returning to the office.

We also send out a short document containing questions and exercises which will help our coaches understand you better and work with you in order to receive the best training.



Post-Course Activity


ILM 5 Post-Course Activity

To achieve this ILM qualification, participants will have to complete the following post-course activities:

3 x work-based assignments need to be completed. We offer 1 year of support included in the price, but you have up to 3 years from attendance and registration to submit them. Embedded in the assignments, the Certificate will require delegates to complete 18 hours of logged coaching with 2-3 people. The Diploma will require delegates to complete 54 hours of logged coaching with 4-9 people.

Additional tutor guided learning will take the format of book and video reviews with ongoing tutor guidance and support via phone, Skype, Zoom or face-to-face.

Optional: Self-initiated 2 x 45 min executive coaching sessions per delegate to offer a coaching best practice view.



Course Material


Course Materials

Each participant on this business coaching course will be issued with a workbook to assist them both during and after the course, which will contain information, guidance and forms to assist with the coaching sessions.

Participants will also complete a Paradigm psychometric report and receive a year's membership with the Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM).

You will receive templates to assist with the three ILM work-based assignments, to ensure you complete your qualification successfully.



What is the difference between the ILM Level 5 Certificate and the Diploma?


What is the difference between the ILM Level 5 Certificate and the Diploma?

The only difference between the ILM Level 5 Diploma and the ILM Level 5 Certificate Qualifications in Effective Coaching and Mentoring is that those wishing to achieve the Diploma will be required to complete 54 hours of logged coaching with 4-9 people, whereas the Certificate requires 18 hours of logged coaching with 2-3 people. We offer full support and guidance in completing these final elements.

This is why the course dates are the same for both the Certificate and Diploma, as delegates attend the same course whichever qualification they are working towards; it is just the post-course coaching hours which are different.




Scheduled Open Courses
