Coaching and Mentoring

People development through business coaching is fast, efficient and cost effective and will get you measurable results. Business coaching can be applied to any employee within an organisation; from executive coaching for a company director, right through to coaching a front line member of staff.

Business coaching can help to bring out the best in the individual and help to remove the barriers that are preventing them from reaching their full potential.

At the Business Learning Foundation, we have a specialist division devoted to business coaching and driving incredible results for our clients, which is so large that it even has its own website! (see Business Coaching Foundation box on the right). Our team of accredited business coaches come from a variety of business sectors but all have valuable and vast business experience to help develop individuals at all levels. Whether you are looking to outsource 1 to 1 or executive coaching, or you would like to train or have your employees trained to become business coaches, we at the Business Learning Foundation can help.

For those looking to gain the skills to become a business coach themselves, or introduce these skills into their organisation, we offer accredited and non-accredited courses. All programmes can be bought in-house, including fully bespoke programmes designed to create an internal coaching culture within your organisation.

Alternatively for individuals or lower staff numbers we run regular public courses across the country. Our most popular course is our unrivalled 3 day, ILM Level 5 Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring. Alternatively, for those looking for a more introductory-level course, the ILM Level 3 Award in Coaching is also available.
