ILM coach training ('Accredited' and 'Recognised')

In addition to offering accredited ILM Level 5 and 7 Coaching & Mentoring courses, and accredited Association for Coaching courses, we offer coach training courses that are:

  • ILM Recognised
  • Institute of Leadership & Management ‘Accredited’ under their ‘Institute Approved’ scheme.

Please note that the ILM is part of the City & Guilds group, and is a different organisation from The Institute of Leadership & Management.

ILM Approved Centre

Each of the courses for the ILM and the Institute shown above have two main evaluation requirements:

  1. Demonstrating the required level of competence on the live training
  2. Completing a written assignment (between 1,000 and 2,500 words) on how you have used, or could use, what you’ve learned on the course when coaching in the workplace.

The Advanced Coaching Skills course above (whether ILM Recognised or Institute Approved) has the same 6-day live training as the ILM Level 5 Certificate in Effective Coaching & Mentoring course, but with a 2,000 word assignment (which can be done in a day or two) rather than the extensive coaching and 12,000+ words assignments which typically take several months to complete. The Executive Coaching Skills course above has the same 7-day live training as the ILM Level 7 Certificate for Executive and Senior Level Coaches and Mentors course (2,500 words instead of 15,000+ words). 

In summary:

  • Our Accredited ILM Level 5 and Level 7 courses offer attendees a VRQ (Vocational Recognised Qualification), and require a combination of face-to-face study and extensive post-course written and practical coaching assignments.
  • Our Recognised ILM courses offer attendees some recognition of having attended an approved ILM training, with a relatively brief post-course assignment. In many cases you can use the face-to-face study to upgrade to an Accredited course.
  • Our Accredited Institute of Leadership & Management courses offer attendees some recognition of having attended an approved Institute of Leadership & Management training with a relatively brief post-course assignment.

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.
