November 2012: Launch of New ILM Qualifications

View From The Hill

This month sees the launch of our new ILM Coaching and Mentoring qualifications. The coaching qualifications for levels 3, 5 and 7 have been re-developed to make them more relevant to coaches and mentors, more rigorous and more pragmatic. So what are the changes?

At level 3 there are now separate qualifications for Coaches and another qualification for Mentors.

All qualifications now have three assignments

Certificate Level
– A Work Based Assignment
– A Coaching Diary
– A Reflective Review

Diploma Level
– A Work Based Assignment
– An Extended Coaching Diary
– A Reflective Review

I am pleased to see that the duplication that existed before, and confused so many people, has now gone.

CFM Consulting Ltd. will be offering Level 3 Coaching, Level 3 Mentoring, Level 5 Coaching & Mentoring and Level 7 Coaching and Mentoring Qualifications, available on an in-house basis. Both L5 and L7 qualifications will continue to be offered twice a year on a public basis.

There will be three other qualifications to look forward to next year – the new ILM Level 7 Supervision qualification and two new endorsed awards – one in Coaching and one in Mentoring. Keep an eye out for these on our website.

Further details on the new qualifications can be found on our website and

Have a good month.


CPD Events



A big thanks to Susan Campbell and her team at EVH in Glasgow for hosting our debut CPD event at their wonderful event space in Sauchiehall Street. We had a full and enthusiastic house to listen to Peter Hill’s insightful presentation on Cognitive Behavioural Coaching. Given the success of this event we are now looking at dates and topics for 2 meets next year.

For those interested in viewing or booking Betty’s Room at EVH or their smaller meeting space you can get details on line at
