Intensive Coaching Skills (ICS)

Our 4-day ICS programmes provide the perfect grounding to launch your coaching ambitions. Sitting at the heart of our coach skills development, this well-established course has transformed the futures of more than 1000 people.
  • It focuses on two crucial components of coaching: the coaching mindset and the core skills. To be an outstanding coach you need both.
  • As you develop them you will improve as a coach and in other areas of your work. The skillset is a gamechanger for any manager, leader or team member.
  • The ICS is practical skill-building at its best. All elements of the interactive programme are based on research and many years practice.
  • Participants consistently describe it as the best learning they’ve experienced; calling it 'transformational' and 'life changing'.
"There was fantastic support from the get go. The ICS is very immersive - you come out with the ability to coach at the end and can really build on it with the qualifications."

ILM Level 5 and Level 7 qualifications

These qualifications encourage breadth in learning, application of skills and self-reflection. All involve completing a set number of hours of coaching practice, writing three assignments, and showing evidence of additional CPD in coaching.

We look after all of this for you and go a step further - incorporating high quality feedback from practising coaches who themselves have helped to qualify hundreds of coaches, who in turn now earn their living from it.

  • We offer supervision and support from a named and experienced coach.
  • We track your coaching practice and provide feedback on your actual coaching work.
  • We offer access to regular ‘Qualification Cafes’ to keep you connected with MF supervisors and candidates.
  • We offer complimentary access to MF Learning Labs
  • We offer regular Group Supervision (Level 7 Diploma)
