Become a coach with our ILM Certified Open Performance Coach Training course. The programme includes everything required to become an executive coach, whether internal or external, as well as enabling participants to become authentic coaching managers. This executive coach training is based on the late Sir John Whitmore’s GROW model, incorporating Tim Gallwey’s “Inner Game” principles, and benefiting from Carol Wilson’s experience in her long career as a corporate MD and board director in industry, including ten years at board level with Sir Richard Branson.
Participants receive the credential CfPAC (Coaching for Performance Accredited Coach) in recognition of Sir John’s contribution to the design of the programme. As an ILM Centre, we are also able to supply ILM Endorsed, Level 5, Level 7 and Diploma accreditation certificates for this course.
When Covid restrictions prevent face-to-face delivery, this course is delivered with equal success by Zoom, on the booked dates. The Zoom training has proved to be as inspiring and energising as the live version, because of the highly interactive nature of the training, with frequent breakouts into pairs and small groups. The pictures show some of our recent participants enjoying their Zoom training.

Our approach to performance coach training
The style of our training is ‘learning by doing’. It is a very practical approach to executive coach training, in which participants have the opportunity to practise coaching about real issues and to get feedback from our trainers and each other.
The course is divided into two modules. Between the two modules, participants are paired with a partner from the course, in order to practise their skills in a safe setting. This builds confidence and fluency, enabling participants to embed the new skills and use them fluently after the course is over.
We are an ILM Centre approved to deliver this course at ILM Endorsed, ILM Level 5, ILM Level 7 and ILM Diploma. The ILM is the leading UK awarding body for general and specialist management qualifications. It is the leadership arm of City & Guilds, which awards NVQ qualifications, and its awards are internationally recognised.
Only long-standing ILM Centres like ourselves are eligible to deliver the ILM Endorsed certificate, which fully qualifies you as a professional coach or manager-as-coach, without the onerous essay writing involved in Levels 5 and 7 ILM Certificates, and at less expense. This is a qualification for people who want to know simply that they can coach efficiently and have an ILM certificate as a proven credential. This certification requires an oral examination and the only written work required is a short coaching log and a case history of less than 1000 words.
Our own CfPAC certification is included in the cost of the course. For details of the different types of certification click here
