The programme includes all the taught content of Iridium’s highly acclaimed ILM5 Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring but with a significantly reduced assessment component. The programme is therefore ideal for individuals looking to use coaching as part of their daily role and seeking to develop their knowledge, skills and behaviours of coaching best practice without undergoing a lengthy assessment process.
What distinguishes this coaching programme from others is the broad syllabus. In addition to covering core coaching principles and frameworks, the programme incorporates tools and techniques for coaching in a range of contexts including work/life balance; managing change and developing self-awareness and emotional intelligence. The programme also incorporates coaching psychology, creative approaches to coaching and current thinking on presence, energy and developing reflective inquiry. This eclectic blend ensures that the programme is both challenging and holistic.

Details of Assignments
Working with Gill has been an invaluable experience for me. Her approach is warm and supportive yet she stretches and challenges me at the same time. I am rapidly becoming a skilled coach and I am also finding that the confidence I am gaining working with Iridium is spilling over into other areas of my work life. I can honestly say that this is one of the best courses I have done.
