ILM Level 3 Coaching through professional coaching and supervision

The ILM Level 3 Programmes in Coaching offer a professional introduction to coaching for team leaders and first line managers and for those who have a coaching role. They give team leaders and managers the opportunity to move into a role as a coach in their workplace. They will also help them gain a detailed understanding of good practice in workplace coaching, the knowledge and skills required to plan and organise a programme of coaching and the opportunity to put this into practice whilst receiving coaching and supervision. They are delivered through a blend of learning that can be tailored to the needs of each student. They can be challenging programmes but the rewards can be high.

The Programme

The programmes are centred on professional coaching and supervision for introducing coaching in the workplace. Students gain a sound understanding of the role of the coach and good practice in coaching which enables them to plan and organise coaching in their workplace. As they undertake the coaching programme, students use feedback in supervision sessions to reflect on and develop their effectiveness. The programme of learning offers a combination of coaching and supervision sessions, set readings, individually defined CPD, online learning and reflective reviews. Students develop their coaching skills supported by their coach, focusing on achieving and assessing the results for their team members and their organisations.

Progression Routes

These Level 3 qualifications form an excellent introduction to professional practice in coaching. Achievement at this level offers a progression route to the ILM L5 qualifications in Coaching and Mentoring which can then lead to the ILM L7 qualifications in Executive Coaching and Leadership Mentoring.
