Course Details

Coaching & Mentoring ILM certificate (online four-part course) with Pam Heneberry

Research carried out by The Institute of Leadership & Management has demonstrated that enhancing your coaching and mentoring skills helps to make you a better leader and a more effective manager. Line managers and mentors are generally not equipped to coach and mentor; they lack the knowledge, the skills, the self-confidence and the experience.

About the course

This four-part course will guide you through the basics of good practise in coaching and mentoring and lead to a qualification with The Institute of Leadership and Management.

The programme consists of 4 x half day sessions plus a tutorial session, delivered online. It is practical and interactive, ensuring you understand the theory and have the opportunity to apply your skills.

On successful completion of 6 further hours of coaching or mentoring you will receive an approved certificate awarded by The Institute of Leadership and Management

Who should apply:

  • Media employees who have a mentoring role or who lead small or large teams (of staff and/or freelancers) within their organisation
  • Media workers who are expected to nurture and train new staff or manage freelances
  • Team leaders who are guiding their teams through change (e.g. adapting to working with reduced staffing due to cuts, leading teams across merged departments, working in an environment where cuts are going to take place etc.)
  • Media employees who’d like to progress up the organisational ladder or who would like to pursue such training as part of their CPD
  • Employees or freelances who have received some training in leadership and management but not in mentoring and coaching
  • Freelances looking to enter or re-enter employment and who wish to expand their skills base
  • Freelances who want to mentor and nurture other freelances, passing on their experience (this can include younger, social media or technology-savvy media workers who can help and nurture older workers along the learning curve).
  • NUJ branch members who can mentor new, often younger members who sometimes come to meetings asking for help and support.

The cost of a place on the programme is highly subsidised:

(Usual costs for this The Institute of Leadership and Management endorsed course start at £475 per person)

The programme will be highly participative and will allow each delegate to practice the skills needed to be an effective mentor and coach.
