Participants will also 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 full 'ILM Level 5 Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring in Management' certificate. These elements have been designed in order to show to the Institute of Leadership and Management (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.
We ask you to come prepared with issues which you are currently experiencing that you would be happy to discuss and be coached on. 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.
To achieve this ILM qualification, participants will have to complete the following post-course activities:
3 x work-based assignments need to be completed within 1 year from attendance and registration. Embedded in the assignments, the Certificate will require delegates to complete 12 hours of coaching or mentoring activity with one or more clients. The Diploma will require delegates to complete 100 hours of coaching or mentoring with three or more clients.
Tutor guided learning will take on the format of book and video reviews with ongoing tutor guidance and support via phone, Skype or face-to-face.
Optional: Self-initiated 2 x 45 min executive coaching sessions per delegate to offer a coaching best practice view.
Each participant 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).
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 Business Coaching and Mentoring is that those wishing to achieve the Diploma will be required to complete 100 hours of additional post-course coaching in addition to the work required for the Certificate. 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.
