2. ILM Recognised programme: general points

Because some leaders and managers may not wish to do one of the many formal ILM qualifications (possibly due to the amount of written work needed), The ILM has a ‘Recognised’ programme. This means that ILM Approved Centres can deliver courses for managers and leaders which the ILM have checked are of a suitable standard. The two types of ‘Recognised’ programmes are ‘ILM Development‘ and ‘ILM Endorsed’.

ILM Development courses have no assessment; the learner gains comfort and reassurance from doing a course meeting ILM’s standards from an ILM Approved Centre.

ILM Endorsed courses are similar to ILM Development, except they have a small amount of assessment. Therefore all of our ILM Endorsed courses have the following assessments:

  • on-course, where you show that you can do what you learn,
  • a brief written assignment (around 1,500 to 2,500 words) after the course, where you explain how you will use (or have used) the material you learn on the course.

Why attend our ILM coach training courses?

  • You will learn excellent coaching skills and gain qualifications / recognition that are internationally-recognised, which will improve your coaching and management capabilities.
  • You will also gain an NLP Diploma/Business Diploma.
  • Because we have been running coaching-related courses since 2000 and are an ILM Approved Centre, you know you will receive high-quality training.
  • Jeremy Lazarus is a very highly-qualified and experienced coach and a former Finance Director, and brings a wealth of practical business experience to your coach training.
  • 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.
