ILM Coach Training Programmes

The Spring 2017 ILM levels 5 & 7 Certificate and Diploma Programmes :

21st February
21st March
25th April
30th May
20th June 2017 (L7 Diploma only)

These highly interactive and participative programmes cover every aspect of coaching from chemistry and contracting, through psychological models and theories and leaving you with a solid grounding in closure and evaluation. The three assessments are supported with academic supervision and the CFM Alumni is there for those achieving these qualifications.
We currently have space on these programmes and have some excellent on course supervisors to assist with the observations during the programmes. The workshops are held in Stirling, Central Scotland. For further details please contact Fiona on 01786 821272 or who will be happy to talk you through the programmes and the assessed elements.

New for 2017

We are also starting an ILM level 7 Supervision programme over 4 modules starting in Spring 2017. This is an “accredited elective programme”, which means you have the option to attend the workshops without taking the qualification. The workshops hold the same content, the supervision only varies to the extent that if you take the qualification, you receive academic supervision. There are no assessments if you do not take the qualification.

For further details please contact Fiona on 01786 821272 or

Food for thought – CPD bite size!


September CPD @ the BBC
