ILM Level 5 in Coaching and Mentoring

EMC is offering an exciting opportunity to be part of an ILM Level 5 programme in Coaching and Mentoring, starting in March 2017.  As an open programme those involved will have the opportunity to learn from and with others across the East Midlands.

This Programme will be based in Derbyshire.

The aim of the ILM 5 Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring in Management is to enable delegates to effectively coach other individuals and where required to act as a coaching resource for their organisation and other organisations. This course is aimed at middle and senior managers to give a practical skill set. 

The business benefit of this training is that Coaching is more cost effective than recruiting. It means staff will be more engaged and effective, able to achieve better business results and deliver on plans.

Delegates will learn how to inspire those around them to see in themselves new possibilities and choices. Growing those around you and creating a ‘can do mentality’ are crucial facets of modern day leadership. Our workshops are designed to trigger delegates into seeing Coaching as a means of maximizing the potential of themselves and those around them.
