ILM Level 7 Programme Outline
Our ILM Level 7 programme is designed for senior managers and/or L&D professionals who want to develop their expertise and credibility in the fields of Coaching and Mentoring, or to establish or develop coaching on an organisational and strategic level.
ILM Level 7 qualifications are equivalent to a Masters degree.
Who should attend the ILM Level 7 programme?
There are no entry requirements for this qualification per se, but this programme is specifically designed for senior managers and HR/L&D professionals who want to develop their expertise and credibility in coaching, whilst learning how to utilise and establish coaching and/or mentoring at an organisational and strategic level. This would also be an appropriate qualification for individuals looking to move into an Executive Coaching role in the future.
What do I need to do and how long does it take?
To gain the ILM Level 7 qualification, you will need to compile a portfolio of evidence throughout the programme, which consists of:
- Records of a minimum 30 hours workplace coaching or mentoring with senior level coachees
- 3 written assignments, focused around your understanding of coaching, application and review of your practice and the organisational development of your coaching strategy
- 3 book reviews of our recommended reads
- Evidence of your own learning and development, including tutorial notes, supervision notes and reflections
Throughout the workshops, you will have direct access to your tutor and our support team, along with three 1 to 1 calls with your tutor/s, at the pre, mid and post-programme stages. Each attendee also gets access to our library of online resources, which includes coaching videos, blogs, templates and self-assessments.
The journey from the start of the programme, through to completing the qualification, usually takes between 15-18 months.

The Coaching Focus Way
Our Level 7 programme follows the prescribed ILM syllabus whilst retaining our unique delivery style and method. The ILM qualifications framework is highly flexible and practical.
Our approach is highly experiential, engaging and focused on the practical – what works at work. Our intent is not only to deliver an outstanding ILM accredited programme, but to ensure that the participants leave with the practical capability to coach or mentor at work and really make a positive impact on their own performance and to that of their organisation.
