    Having worked as an elite sports coach for the past 15 years I felt I needed to add to my knowledge and skills as a coach and work towards being able to mentor new coaches and colleagues effectively.  The ILM level 5 course at Oxford Brookes has been a fantastic opportunity to learn and practice new techniques under creative and supportive tutors amongst a diverse range of people.  It has opened my eyes to current thinking and models in the coaching and mentoring arena which I am already using within my coaching and mentoring practice.  Sue Rose, Sports Consultant, Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist
