Overview of our ILM Recognised Core Coaching Skills course

This 2-3 day Core Coaching Skills course (which has an option for an ILM Recognised version – see FAQs below) is perfect for anyone wanting to coach professionally or as a manager. As a result, it is an integral part of our higher level ILM Coach training courses and Association for Coaching training courses. The ILM (Institute of Leadership and Management) is the UK’s top leadership and management qualifications specialist, and the AC is one of the world’s leading coaching bodies, so you know you will be receiving high-quality training even if you do the non-ILM version.

This Core Coaching Skills course is suitable for:

  • managers and HR professionals looking to improve their coaching skills
  • qualified NLPers who want to learn how to use their NLP skills when coaching, as well as enhancing their coaching skills
  • existing coaches seeking CPD training
  • people seeking an ILM or AC coach training qualification

The course lasts 3 days, and you may be exempt from day 1 if you have previous NLP or basic coach training. The two ILM Recognised versions of this course are explained in the FAQs below.
