Gain a recognised award whilst coaching your team to success!

The Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) Level 3 Award in Effective Coaching gives you the skills to empower and motivate your team members. Coaching skills help you develop your direct reports, by asking powerful questions provoking them to think of solutions for themselves. This course enables you to hold formal coaching sessions with colleagues, as well as using coaching skills on an informal basis as part of your job. It gives you a recognised qualification in workplace coaching.


The Level 3 Award in Effective Coaching is a concise qualification made up of three units which introduce the key aspects of coaching in the workplace. The units are:

  • 'Understanding good practice in coaching within an organisational context';
  • 'Undertaking coaching within an organisational context';
  • 'Reflecting on coaching skills within an organisational context';

You will complete a written assignment for each unit. As part of Units 2 and 3, you need to complete at least six hours of workplace coaching ie find people whom you will coach about their workplace issues.

Results for you:

  • Know what it takes to be an effective coach in your workplace
  • Understand how coaching works - learn a coaching model and tools and techniques to support it
  • Put your new skills into practice in your job - carry out supervised coaching sessions
  • Analyse, assess and plan to improve your own coaching ability
Impact for your employer:
  • Implement coaching to improve performance in your organisation
  • Ensure the managers you develop as coaches are properly equipped with the skills, knowledge and ethical understanding they need to be effective
  • Measurable impact from supervised coaching sessions carried out as part of this qualification

Accreditation for Prior Learning

All Rowan trainers are experienced trainers as well as practising coaches. The direct coaching practice of the trainers informs and enhances their training. Rachel Weiss, Head of Training, is the lead trainer for this course. You will receive 2 individual tutorials to support and complete your portfolio of evidence, and your tutor is available for telephone consultations between tutorials and training days.

Rowan Consultancy has delivered coaching and coaching training to organisations in the private, public and voluntary sectors for many years. We know which models work and how to help you acquire and practice coaching skills.
