Gain a recognised award whilst coaching your team to success!

The Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) Level 3 Award in 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 Coaching is a concise qualification made up of three units which introduce the key aspects of coaching in the workplace. These units are spread over three days, during which you will also receive two individual tutorials. The units are:

  • 'Understanding good practice in workplace coaching';
  • 'Organising workplace coaching' ;
  • 'Undertaking Supervised Coaching in the Workplace';

In addition, you will need to complete six hours of workplace coaching sessions with your own staff. Each coaching session is evaluated by you and the people you coach, and this forms part of a portfolio of evidence required for the award. You also need to complete a short assignment and keep a coaching diary.

By the end of the course, you will:

  • understand the role of the workplace coach
  • be able to self-access a variety of interpersonal communication skills
  • give effective feedback to learners
  • understand the range and value of different learning resources that support safe and effective coaching
  • gain practical skills in how to monitor and record learner progress
  • plan, organise and undertake workplace coaching sessions
  • monitor/review your own workplace coaching performance


Participants must have completed Rowan's Manager as Coach course or Rowan's Coaching For Counsellors course before enrolling for the ILM Award or Certificate in Coaching.
