ILM Level 7 Certificate Outline

Target Audience

The ILM Level 7 qualification is aimed at 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.

Delivery Method

Each traditional workshop day will be split into three 2-hour sessions, starting at 9am, 12pm and 3pm each day – with hour long breaks to refresh.

Our virtual style closely imitates our face-to-face, so we chalk and talk, don’t use PowerPoints and aim to make the sessions as inclusive an interactive as possible. We still breakout for practice in the meetings to allow you to apply the new tools and skills learned in a safe controlled environment.

Our preferred platform is Zoom.

Our Approach

Our approach is highly experiential, engaging and focused on the practical – we use 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 at work and really make a positive impact on their own performance and to that of their organisation.

Our ILM Level 7 Certificate programme consists of:

  • Twenty 2-hour sessions, split into 4 workshops
  • Pre, mid and post programme 1:1 calls with the Tutor
  • Provision of extensive online resources
  • Telephone check-ins with the Tutor as required
  • Undertaking a minimum of 30 hours of formal workplace coaching
