Realising potential

    For many years, good coaching practice has been associated with high performance, particularly in sports. Many successful organisations however, are increasingly using coaching to help get the best performance from individuals and their teams.

    A qualified coach has the skills and expertise to enable people to get the best from themselves and to realise their potential.

    Our Coaching Services have been designed in response to requests from leaders in schools and settings interested in developing and sustaining performance. In partnership with Jeff Matthews of The Madison Group and FreshThink Ltd, we offer a range of coaching services working with high quality trained coaches who are accredited to ILM Level 5.

    Coaching would be beneficial to:

    • those aspiring to lead
    • those new to senior leadership
    • well-established leaders looking to take their organisation to the next level

    In addition, the service is also offering a coaching package, through which individuals and teams can train to become ILM Level 3 coaches, with the option of further developing to ILM level 5.

    Becoming a coach

    hfl_logo_164x66.jpgMany leaders in education have expressed a desire to develop coaching skills for themselves and/ or members of their team in order to develop a coaching culture that is both cost effective and sustainable across an educational setting.

    In response to this we have developed a unique programme in partnership with Jeff Matthews of The Madison Group to train individuals to develop coaching skills to ILM level 3 or level 5. Level 3 is a four day programme running over three terms; beginning with a two day introductory skills module, followed by two one-day programmes to support progress and add further advanced coaching skills. The level 5 qualification has an extra 3 ½ days training as well as two days of supervision.

    The programme is supported by reading and assignments. Individuals can choose to have these reviewed and assessed and, if successful, will receive a nationally recognised ILM Level 3 or 5 coaching qualification.

    Coaching is available for all educational settings, both in and out of Hertfordshire.

    Prices are as follows:

    Non accredited route

    Course fee £550

    Accredited route to ILM Level 3

    Course fee £550 + £557 accreditation costs - total: £1,107

    ILM Level 3 must be achieved before attending the ILM Level 5 training.

    ILM Level 5

    Course fee £950

    We also offer team coaching for educational settings wishing to work together more widely on developing a clear sense of future planning.

    Executive coaching is also available, delivered by Fresh Think, and is tailored to aspiring, new and established leaders.
