ILM experiences: the power of the ILM network
ILM qualifications are delivered via our approved network – giving unparalleled choice of providers, all with the ILM stamp of approval
After several years of difficulty, Doncaster College came up with a recovery plan to turn the organisation around.
From the scale of the challenge, it was clear this would not be possible for the college to achieve this on its own.
This is exactly what the college has needed to move us on
The college set itself the ambitious target of developing and harnessing the management and leadership potential throughout the organisation by embedding a coaching culture.
They chose ILM centre Xenonex Ltd as their preferred provider. Xenonex delivered the ILM Level 5 Coaching and Mentoring in Management qualification to ten managers at Doncaster College, creating a skilled internal coaching team. Xenonex has passed ILM’s exacting approvals process, meaning the highest standard of delivery for the industry’s gold standard coaching qualification.
Some of the best CPD I have ever had
Doncaster College was also able to draw on the second strength of the ILM network – the range and flexibility of our approved centres and training providers - ensuring a flexible approach, tailored to their needs.
Xenonex worked with Doncaster College on a three-year plan, with several strands alongside the ILM coaching qualification to ensure lasting change and a fully embedded coaching culture.
This included initial consultancy, to help shape the college’s strategy, an executive coaching programme to ensure change happened at the very top and coaching skills training for 70 managers in the organisation, as well as the full formal ILM qualification for the core internal coaching team.
Even by the halfway point in its three year programme, Doncaster College had seen impressive results and become finalists in the National Training Awards. By working with Xenonex, they were able to harness the unique combination of approved standards and flexible provision offered by the ILM network.
