In summary:

  • Our ‘Accredited’ ILM courses offer attendees a VRQ (Vocational Recognised Qualification), and require a combination of face-to-face study and post-course written and practical coaching assignments.
  • Our ‘Recognised’ ILM courses offer attendees some recognition of having attended an approved ILM training, without signidficant amounts of post-course assignments. In many cases you can use the face-to-face study to upgrade to an Accredited course.

Please see immediately below for more detailed information.

1. Accredited ILM coach training courses

We offer the following two Accredited courses;

We can offer the ‘Diploma’ rather and ‘Certificate’ version of each. The ‘Diploma’ version has significantly more coaching hours, so the related written assignment is longer. Contact us for more details.

Please follow the links above to see the course details. In summary, these are nationally recognised qualifications in coaching and mentoring, awarded by the ILM. There are several days’ coach training for each course, and afterwards you do ILM’s written assignments and specified number of coaching hours (more details are shown on the relevant page).

The terms ‘Level 5’ and ‘Level 7 ‘ are based on the UK Government’s National Qualification Framework. As mentioned in this ILM document, Level 5 roughly equates to the level of the first year or two of a Batchelors Degree, and Level 7 roughly equates to Masters’ Degree level.

2. ILM Recognised coach training courses

The ILM Recognition programme, offering a digital and physical ILM certificate, has two forms of assessment:

  • on the course, where you show that you can do the coaching techniques that you learn on the course,
  • after the course, where you write a brief essay which explains how you will use (or have used) the material.

We have five Recognised ILM coach training courses, and you can choose the basic level, where there is no ILM assessment or certification at all.

The relevant course page shows the prices for each level.

What our students and clients say

Ivona Gordon

Jeremy has a unique approach to bringing out the best in people. He certainly practices what he preaches!  Jeremy is one of a handful of trainers/coaches/practitioners that I would, without any hesitation, recommend to others.  He is knowledgeable, ethical and shows genuine passion for the work he does and how best to serve others.

Mel Larsen

Before doing the NLP course, I had felt I needed more coaching approaches and methodologies. The course gave me a lot of new techniques which I have used to help my coaching clients. Also I was launching my new coaching brand as I was doing the programme and looking back I can see it helped me to set big targets and reach them.

Donna de Villiers

I have had the pleasure of studying with Jeremy, and the NLP he has taught has had a wonderful impact on my personal and professional life.  Jeremy explains NLP in an accessible, easy, manner and for me took away the fluff of the subject.  The practical help on the courses and the smaller classes give you a personal learning environment, perfect for this subject.  I highly recommend Jeremy for anyone interested in NLP.

Simon Fanning

I found the course to be enlightening both personally and professionally.  Jeremy’s experience of the corporate world allowed for a real life perspective to be taken and a focused view into NLP and its application in Business and coaching.

Dave Cordle

I’ve undertaken three major trainings with Jeremy: NLP Practitioner, NLP Master Practitioner and most recently NLP Sports Practitioner. I keep coming back because the training is thorough, ethical and ecological, and it’s academically recognized. As a career coach I work with people at all stages of their career, across levels and across a wide range of industries.

Dara Caryotis

I feel privileged to have discovered NLP, it has changed my life. Understanding communication, the impact of language and being able to change unwanted behaviours has been the difference that made the difference for me.  Jeremy is so much more than an NLP Master Trainer.  It is a powerful rewarding experience learning and evolving with Jeremy. I highly recommend studying with Jeremy, one of my best decisions.
