    Our ILM Level 5 Certificate in Effective Coaching and Mentoring is a highly-engaging and interactive online programme, which provides opportunities for delegates to practise their coaching and mentoring skills.

    The core aim of the programme is to enable delegates to develop their skills, knowledge and behaviours as a coach and mentor. Delegates will also learn how to effectively manage the coaching and mentoring process and develop an understanding of how the organisational context can affect coaching or mentoring.

    The course is delivered as a series of online workshops, which equate to 5 full days of training. Online training sessions are also supported by individual and group supervision sessions (also online).

    The suggested study period is around 8 months, (including assessment of all three modules), This is dependent on the participant’s accessibility to coaching and mentoring clients to complete the required hours for the practical assessment.

    The qualification is made up of three core modules that enable delegates to understand, develop and demonstrate the required levels of knowledge and skills to deliver effective coaching and mentoring.

    • The first module 'Understanding the Skills, Principles and Practice of Effective Coaching and Mentoring within an Organisational Context' aims to provide participants with an understanding of the skills, principles and practice required for effective coaching or mentoring within an organisational context.
    • In the second module 'Undertaking an Extended Period of Effective Coaching or Mentoring within an Organisational Context', participants are expected to plan and prepare to deliver a coaching or mentoring programme to support a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 3 individuals over 18 hours. Delegates are also expected to engage in and evidence a minimum of 2 hours of supervision for this module.  
    • In the final module 'Reviewing Own Ability as a Coach or Mentor within an Organisational Context', participants have the opportunity to holistically review their ability to perform effectively as a coach or mentor within an organisational context.
