LET'S TALK ABOUT ILM Endorsed First Steps into Coaching

This ilm Endorsed Programme is focused entirely on the skill of Coaching. Delivered over 3 workshops we explore and embed moving from 'tell' to a coaching culture and the positive impact this will have on the workplace and team. We look at creating a sense of empowerment and an engaged team.


why come on the course?

Do you require a better understanding of how to coach?

Have you kept telling your team to do something and it just doesn’t get done?

Do you often feel like some of your team aren’t listening to you and you don’t know why?

Is it frustrating for you when things you have specifically asked for do not get completed to your standard?

If you have answered yes to any of the above questions, then this course is definitely for you.


What is it?

A programme of three coaching workshops that cover 'understanding good practice in coaching', 'undertaking coaching' and 'reflecting on coaching'

Each workshop is fully practical with some using our actors to demonstrate the power of good coaching and the impact of getting it wrong.

After each workshop, you’ll complete 2 short journal entries where you reflect on a specific aspect of the session, thinking about how it relates to your situation and job role.

These journal entries form the assessment of your learning and you’ll get individual written feedback on each of these to help you improve and apply your skills. At the end of the programme you’ll receive a certificate from the ILM in recognition of your achievement


What will I do on the programme?

Each workshop is different, but they’re all interactive and practical.

We’ll take you through some coaching theory, but we’ll help you apply it to your own situations so it’s meaningful and relevant to you.

Some workshops are theatre-based, where our actors will bring coaching scenarios and behaviours to life, helping you to apply skills in practice.

By the end of the programme, you’ll have developed a toolkit of coaching skills to help you coach your team effectively

embedding the learning.

Some of this programme is delivered using observational theatre based learning. On those workshops, our actors perform a number of coaching scenarios. In addition to these scenes, we facilitate discussions after each one to understand the impact and we embed coaching and understand the benefits of this tool.

Our actors add a different dimension to this course by giving a chance to practice, get it wrong and understand why and the impact we have on others.

We also provide post-course coaching help for new coaches to continue the learning and provide a sounding board and support.

Some faq's about ILM Training.

0.1 What is Theatre based learning?

Theatre Based Learning is the technique we use to bring learning to life by using our actors to perform scenarios, based on real case studies.

Theatre Based Learning can be either observational (where learners watch scenes and discuss) OR participative (where we use techniques like real-play and practice, forum where learners interact with the actors and direct them or hot-seating where learners give feedback to individual characters and make suggestions).

0.2What are the benefits of this Endorsed Coaching training?
A standard ILM programme does have assignments linked to each workshop. This can be overwhelming to some who have left education behind or have strong management potential, but perhaps aren't very academic. This programme blends a joined up learning experience, with workshops tailored to your business along with reflective journals and discussion on how the learning is being used. This leads to longevity and more likelihood of the coaching skills being embedded. Each workshop builds on the content from the previous workshop and is delivered by the team building a sense of trust and understanding.

Discussing and learning in the traditional ‘class-room’ is effective, but long-term memory is better stimulated by having an experience. Our approach using experiential and drama based methods delivers this and leads to more sustained learning.

    theatre of learning delivering sustained blended learning.

    Our training is observational and participative, using teams of actors to bring it to life. We recognise that taking part in role-play is not for everyone, so we offer observational training – this is where two of our acting team demonstrate scenes related to the course and delegates observe and comment on the behaviors. Where a business is more confident working with actors, we take this to the next level with participative training so delegates get to practice their newly learnt skills.
