ILM Level 3 Certificate in Coaching & Mentoring

The challenge of every organisation is to instil in their managers a strong competency in their ability to coach and mentor people through both prosperous and challenging times. The purpose is to retain employees and develop them because they are critical assets in helping the organisation reach greater heights.

Are you a new supervisor, team leader or line-manager? Our ILM Level 3 Certificate in Coaching & Mentoring qualification will help you to be an effective coach and improve performance in your workplace.

What is the ILM?

The Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) is an awarding body for leadership and management qualifications in the UK. Stonebridge are proud to offer this industry recognised distance learning course as it’s a mark of quality and a priceless addition to your CV.

Is this distance learning course right for me?

While there may be some similarities, coaching and mentoring people are two different styles, but the goal of both revolves around supporting the development of an individual.

Mentoring is often a longer relationship between someone who’s experienced, the mentor, and the less experienced, the trainee. Mentors will often give advice and actually show the trainee what to do and how to do it.

Coaching typically has a set time frame and is more structured in nature with regularly scheduled meetings. This often involves focusing on developing goals and meeting specific needs of an employee.

This ILM Level 3 Certificate in Coaching & Mentoring is a fully recognised qualification. You’ll gain fantastic skills which will be a real asset for you and your employer:

Learn about coaching and mentoring as powerful development tools

  • Understand the role and responsibilities of an effective coach and mentor
  • Explore different coaching and/or mentoring models
  • Develop practical skills, tools and techniques to support these models
  • Put your new skills into practice – carry out supervised coaching and/or mentoring sessions
  • Analyse, assess and plan to improve your own coaching and/or mentoring ability.

You can decide when and where you choose to study; the more time that you allocate learning, the faster you’ll be able to complete this distance learning course.

Requirements for Course Entry

There are no formal entry requirements to enrol on this Coaching & Mentoring course. However, it’s aimed at people who are new to management and wish to develop or improve upon their coaching and mentoring skills. They’ll be some basic assessment in mathematics, IT and English levels.

Overview of the ILM Level 3 Certificate in Coaching & Mentoring Course

By providing encouragement, guidance and support, a manager can help employees learn and improve their work performance. In order for a manager to be effective in this task, they need to have a strong presence and coaching skills.

You’ll learn to become confident in coaching and mentoring within your management role, as you learn the tools needed for developing yourself and others. Here are some units that you’ll study to gain a fully rounded understanding of coaching and mentoring:

  • Understand good practice in workplace coaching
  • Understand good practice in workplace mentoring
  • Undertaking an extended period of coaching (mentoring) in the workplace
  • Reflecting on workplace coaching skills
  • Undertaking an extended period of mentoring in the workplace

What can I do once I have successfully completed the ILM Level 3 Certificate in Coaching & Mentoring?

You’ll become a more effective coach and mentor. Effective coaching and mentoring requires a customised growth plan that fits the trainee. Whichever method is used, it’s important to remember the success of the employee.

It‘s your role as the manager/mentor is to help your employees understand for example, the ways of working within the organisation. The focus is on developing the employee professionally, where they’re in charge of their own agenda and reach out to the mentor, as needed.

Benefits for employers too

  • Coaching and mentoring is implemented in the organisation
  • Coaches and mentors are properly equipped with the skills, knowledge and ethical understanding they need
  • A coaching and mentoring culture in the organisation means managers are willing and able to support continual professional development

What are the average salaries for a coach or mentor in a management role?

Managers can be employed and progress in various places of work - in the public, private, and non-profit sectors, in short by any organisation, from SME’s to international corporations. Your role as a manager/coach is to know when to listen, ask powerful questions and give feedback as needed.

The type of sector you’re employed in has some affect on the salary offered and it also varies depending on your employer and level of responsibility involved. Typical starting salaries for new managers may range from £18,000 up to £30,000. After some experience under your belt, your yearly income could range from £30,000 to £50,000.

These figures are intended as a guideline only.
