Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM)- Level 5 Certificate in Effective Coaching & Mentoring 


At DoctorsTraining, we are committed to providing our learners with the opportunity to build on the initial workshops and progress to a formal qualification. That’s why we’ve partnered with the Advanced Coaching Academy, one of the UK’s leading coaching and mentoring organisations, to offer the ILM Level 5 Certificate in Effective Coaching and mentoring. 

This is a comprehensive program that covers a range of topics, including coaching and mentoring theory, skills development, communication strategies, and professional ethics. This program is designed for individuals who are currently working in a coaching or mentoring role, or those who are looking to transition into this field. With the guidance of experienced coaches and mentors, participants gain practical skills and knowledge that you can apply immediately in your current role.

To enrol in our program, you must commit to: 
  • Attending all delivery workshops (7 days)
  • Time commitment to complete 18 hours of coaching/mentoring for the ILM assessment by the allotted assessment date.
  • Identifying a minimum of two and a maximum of three coachees/mentees at an appropriate level to complete your coaching/mentoring hours.
  • Identifying potential supervision (minimum of two hours from either a supervisor, tutor, or experienced coach) so you can evidence your supervisory support in the qualification.
  • The ILM assigns 138 hours to this qualification for the Total Qualification Time. This is estimated on the number of hours a learner will reasonably be likely to spend in preparation, study, or any form of participation, including assessment. This is only a guideline and will depend highly on your own personal learning ability and style.

ILM Qualification and Assessment

To achieve your ILM qualification, you will be required to complete 3 assignments:
  • Assignment 1 focuses on your understanding of coaching and mentoring theory but linked to your own environment and practice.
  • Assignment 2 requires you to evidence you have undertaken 18 hours of coaching and mentoring, including specific elements of coaching, and mentoring like goal setting. You need to keep diaries, notes, and logs of your practice to evidence your work.
  • Assignment 3 is a reflective review on your coaching and mentoring including the impact of your own and your clients’ characteristics.
