A 3 day programme delivered through a blend of face-to-face training, independent learning and assignment activities with practical supervised guidance.

The certificate comprises three units:

Understanding the principles and practice of effective coaching supervision
Undertaking effective supervision of coaches
Reflecting on your own ability to perform effectively as a coaching supervisor


The Level 7 Certificate in Coaching Supervision aims to equip professional coaches with the supervision skills and knowledge needed to practice as confident and competent coaching supervisors. It is ideal for those seeking to develop their expertise in internal or external supervision of strategic, leadership, business or management coaching within an organisation.

Supervision is an essential part of the ILM qualification and each participant is allocated 3 hours with a supervisor to be used proactively and periodically in line with individual needs and in agreement with the supervisor. Supervision can take the form of one to one meetings, telephone conversations, email or skype interaction. You need to demonstrate in your assignments that this has been completed and be able to meet the assessment criteria relating to supervision.


  • What is Supervision?
  • How does it fit into the wider context
  • How Supervision works in practice
  • The contribution of supervision
  • Methods of 1 to 1 and group supervision
  • The skills and conditions required
  • Practical methods of reflection and feedback
  • Practical methods of conducting supervision
  • Group supervision practical session
  • Self-assessment
  • Tools and techniques for CPD
  • Constructing a profile and position yourself as a coaching supervisor

How is it assessed?

There are three assignments:

Assignment 1 is a written submission that asks you to demonstrate your understanding of the context in which effective coaching supervision exists and operates in an organisational context

Assignment 2 is a record of 20 hours of supervision practice you have undertaken during the programme

Assignment 3 takes the form of a critical reflective review requiring you to complete in depth and evidenced reflection and assessment of yourself in relation to the requirements and challenges of the supervisor role
