Why ILM?

The Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) is a membership body for managers and business leaders in the UK. It also is an awarding body, allowing public and commercial sector organisations, like Practical Coach Training, to deliver accredited courses according to the ILM specifications.

Each year, more and more employers are recognising ILM qualifications and development  – in fact 84% of employers saw an immediate impact on their organisation’s performance after working with the ILM.

Our reason for choosing the ILM as the qualification pathway is that it is recognisable within the UK, and that there is enough flexibility in the course content to enable us to design most innovative and compelling courses for coaches.
