ILM Accredited Qualifications

"The course was a very practical business-focused three days. It helped dispell the myths around coaching and provided all the ground work in order to allow me to develop my coaching skills. The trainer was insightful and pragmatic and everything was driven towards 'real world'."

Below is a brief overview of some of the ILM-accredited business coaching, management training and leadership development programmes we can deliver here at the Business Coaching Foundation.

We run the most popular of these as open courses at our training venues across the UK, and can be seen by clicking on the 'Courses' tab at the top of the page.

The majority of our work involves providing in-house training for organisations who have a number of employees who would benefit from the course, as it is much more cost-effective to have an in-house programme than putting them all on open courses.

Please call us on 0844 800 3295 or send us an online contact form for more information regarding in-house ILM training.
