Code: ESC/21/79 ILM Level 3 Award in Coaching Fast Track

PLEASE NOTE - this is now delivered remotely via MS Teams over four half day sessions. See Additional Information below for detailed times and dates.

Have you learnt coaching skills through our one day Coaching Skills (previously An Introduction to Coaching) or the two day Coaching for Managers course? Would you like to improve your skills and gain more practice?

If so the ILM Level 3 Award in Coaching could be for you. This course is designed to give you an in depth knowledge of coaching skills and of the tools you can use in your coaching practice. You will also be required to complete 12 hours of supervised coaching to practically apply the tools and skills. Completion of this course will qualify you to become a member of the workplace coaching pool and we will be able to refer potential "coachees" from across the organisation to you.

Typically it can take between six months and one year to complete the course.

By attending our 2-day Coaching for Managers programme, managers will have covered some of the knowledge element of the Level 3 coaching programme and a considerable amount of the skills element.

Therefore all managers who have completed the 2-day programme or the 1 day Coaching Skills are invited to fast track through the ILM Level 3 Award in Coaching.

As part of this course you will be required to find a "coachee" to practice your skills with. Before starting please identify someone that you can either work with yourself, or that you can swap with another person in the group.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised two day accredited training course which teaches people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. There are four sessions to this course, 2 on each of 2 days, and allowing ample time for coffee/comfort breaks.

MHFA training won’t teach you to be a therapist, but just like physical first aid, it will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis. The MHFA course is delivered by a quality assured Instructor accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health, who are trained to keep people safe and supported while they learn.

You’ll learn to recognise warning signs of mental ill health, and develop the skills and confidence to approach and support someone whilst keeping yourself safe.

  • To releasing your staff member for the two day training course, plus any post support sessions (approx. 2 sessions lasting a maximum of 3 hours each).
  • To releasing your staff member for related meetings (approximately 1 or 2 per year).
  • Allowing time to support colleagues when needed (often at short notice).

You give them the best services and information possible.

But sometimes, people do the wrong things and consequently there are occasional conflicts that need to be managed.

Many people don’t like handling conflict, because they don’t know how to do it.

We know that mismanaged conflict can be very costly.

Conflict situations need to be handled properly.

So, how can we best resolve conflicts; quickly, easily, and without too much negative emotion?
