ILM Level 3 Award in Coaching
A course which aims to equip practising and potential team leaders and first line managers with the knowledge, skills and confidence to perform effectively as workplace coaches.
Because of their expertise, team leaders and first line managers may be expected to help others develop similar levels of competence, which can include coaching individuals. This qualification is designed to develop the knowledge and skills required by team leaders and FLMs in undertaking this responsibility.
Coaching for team leaders and first line managers is defined as the process of enabling individuals to acquire the knowledge, skills and techniques needed to perform effectively in their occupational role by motivating, inspiring, challenging, stimulating and guiding them.
The coach must be able to recognise the needs of the individuals being coached, develop coaching programmes appropriate to meet those needs, and help individuals to achieve to their full potential.
Those who are appointed to mentor apprentices can specifically benefit by doing this course.
All qualifications through the Institute of Leadership and Management are internationally recognised by employers.
