Kizzy Harris, Crisp Professional Development associate and ILM Level 7 Executive Coach comments about her ILM qualification:

“ILM is a well-recognised and respected qualification. One of the key benefits of ILM is that both the assignments and coaching practice are work-based. I found that this really stretched my understanding and application of coaching in the workplace. This in turn enabled me to make a significant contribution towards developing a coaching culture within my organisation. As a mentor, I see the investment a business makes being returned through the growth of knowledge, skills and behaviour of not only the trainee coach but also of all those they work with whilst training and post qualification.”

A recent graduate, ILM Level 5 Leadership and Management

"The whole experience has been very good, particularly getting the email to say that I had passed the course!  What I found most beneficial is that my tutor was always on hand. I could submit as many drafts of my assignments as I wanted for her to review. As I work shifts, I also found it helpful that the assignments could be submitted by email and follow ups either in person/email or by phone.  If anyone is considering bettering themselves and improving their leadership style, I would thoroughly recommend this ILM course"
