ILM 7 Taylor Clarke

ILM Level 7 Certificate and Diploma for Executive and Senior Level Coaches
Live Virtual Programme ​
Starting September 4th 2024


I benefited so much from the ILM Exec Coaching course, both professionally and personally. Facilitators have insights and tools to share from years of experience in leadership and coaching, and are always generous with them. In terms of supervision, I found the space I had invaluable to reflect on practice and build up my skill set. I would highly recommend doing this course.

-Julie Breslin, Head of Programme at Addaction

What Past Participants say


I completed and passed the ILM 7 Diploma in Executive Coaching a year ago with Taylor Clarke.  The support from the teaching team is excellent – they are always on hand to provide practical and tangible guidance as well as introducing new models and frameworks to help your coaching practice!  The majority of the course was delivered during the pandemic and whilst it would have been better to have been face to face the superb teaching made it a success.

A year after finishing the ILM Level 7 Diploma in Executive Coaching, I still use what I learnt on a daily basis from doing 1:1 coaching sessions, supporting my team to problem solve better ways of working and listening to family and friends.

The team at Taylor Clarke are supportive and the supervision sessions give you the inspiration to complete the course, when work and home live is busy.

The two best skills I learnt on this course is to how meaningfully self-reflect and actively listen, rather than waiting to respond.

I undertook the ILM Level 7 Diploma in Executive Coaching from April 22 – June 23 through Taylor Clarke. The quality of the teaching, the ongoing support, and the other participants made this course both thoroughly enjoyable and stimulating.  I learnt new models and frameworks, I re-learnt some skills around assignment writing and I un-learnt some behaviours around what I “thought” it was to be a coach. 


Overall it was a really rewarding and energising course to be a part of and I have really enjoyed putting my learning into practice in my role.  I would recommend Taylor Clarke and this course to support ongoing personal development in the area of Executive Coaching.

Completing the ILM Level 7 Executive Coaching certificate has proved to a transformational experience for me as a developing coach.  I am now able to approach coaching with confidence and belief in the effectiveness of the strategies that I employ.  Its influence has extended beyond my direct coaching; it has had a significant impact on my own leadership approach and those of my colleagues.  My thanks to TaylorClarke for a well organised and stimulating course.  I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to develop their capacity to operate successfully at the Senior Executive level.

I have just completed the first ever virtual version of the Taylor Clarke ILM 7 Certificate in Leadership and Executive Coaching. I can't praise the team highly enough for creating a perfect virtual world where we were all able to have a fantastic, supported and positive learning experience. Such was the care and attention taken over the learning environment and our individual needs that I can honestly say there was never a moment when I wished we were all in the same room together -  because we were already there!

The invaluable support and excellent training was pivotal in helping me to gain my ILM Level 7 Certificate in Executive Coaching. This has allowed me to confidently build my flourishing coaching business. I would thoroughly recommend this programme - a truly outstanding opportunity for professional development.

-Madeleine O’Brien, Executive and Team Coach/Developer


I completed a qualification through Taylor Clarke in Executive Coaching and Workplace Mentoring. This was one of the best courses I have done in a long time. The delivery and ongoing support was quite exceptional. As a result I am still inspired to apply what I have learnt (and this is 6 months after I completed the course). I would highly recommend this course at Taylor Clarke for anyone wanting to strengthen their skills and knowledge in Executive Coaching. Thanks  

-Jayne Dunn, Co-Founder and Director of CulturAlchemy


The ILM level7 executive coaching course was excellent. It felt the epitome of self-development in a way that surprised me! I entered the course to develop skills to support others and due to the knowledge, professionalism, and experience of the team my own growth was facilitated. The skills I gained have enable me to be better in my role and provide tangible change for those I have supported.

I recently completed the ILM7 Certificate for Executive Coaching online.

The skills, knowledge and experience of the facilitators shaped a fantastic learning experience and the wonderfully supportive virtual community they created, enabled us to grow and develop as Executive Coaches.

I first qualified as a coach nearly 20 years ago, and had previously completed other coaching qualifications. The content of this programme challenged me to think more strategically about the impact of Coaching across the whole industry & as well as how to develop my own coaching practice and experience. It is a great blend of workshops, written & practical work with expert Supervision to support you with your required Coaching hours.

I would highly recommend Taylor Clarke & this programme!

'I found the whole experience of working with the team at Taylor Clarke to be a really rewarding one. The blend of knowledge, skills, encouragement and constructive feedback was evident throughout the programme, and gave me a real sense of motivation to want to both further develop myself and achieve the goal of being formally accredited with an Executive Coaching L7 Diploma from the ILM. Equally, the facilitation of workshops was well thought out, combining theory and practice from the outset and enabling participants to learn in a collaborative environment.

I’d thoroughly recommend the programme to anyone who has a real passion for coaching and who wants to further develop in this specialism.'

- Neil Barrell, Director, People & Property Services, Three UK

Having decided to pursue a qualification in coaching, I had to them find a suitable course.  This one was recommended to me by a colleague and I am delighted that I was able to study with ILM.  The course is well structured and delivered by tutors who are friendly, knowledgeable and supportive.  Learning alongside participants from different organisations was valuable and I thoroughly enjoyed our time together.  Thanks to ILM, I now have the knowledge and confidence to deliver coaching.

- LJ Lockwood, ILM Participant 

The Executive Coaching and Mentoring  Diploma with Taylor Clarke has given my career a whole new direction. It has helped me develop and hone my skills in coaching and built my confidence in a supportive environment, learning alongside a cohort of similarly minded and experienced fellow students. I am now working independently as an executive coach and thoroughly enjoying this new phase to my career.
