What people are saying about our Training

I am currently participating in the ILM level 3 coaching program being delivered by ESB. I am really enjoying being part of this and having the opportunity to mix with interesting people, and benefiting from the experience of insightful, experienced coaches helping me in building important skills and gain a recognised qualification at the same time! In my opinion, this is a must for any aspiring coach!
Paul Sharp
Very pleased I signed up to do the ILM Level 3 Certificate in Effective Coaching (Coaching for Growth) with Rosie of ESB Training & Coaching Consultancy fame. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the course and would recommend all who need that little extra help, to take this course because; “Your Success will come from your Strengths”.

I recently attended the 3 day Coaching Consultancy course with ESB training. I now have a new set of skills and models which are already proving to be effective in my day to day coaching activities. It has also allowed me to work with a different network of people, whom bring fresh eyes and ideas to situations I have currently dealt with or are dealing with. The course is a very effective way of advancing yourself to another level, enhancing your coaching skills and using effective models and learning far more across the spectrum of the subject. James

I am so pleased I made the decision to sign up to this course and get qualified with ESB training. Rosie our trainer is lovely - really knowledgeable and supportive and the group is small enough for lots of discussions and group learning. The setting for the training is also really well suited, easy to get too with great snacks and very comfy seats for discussion and practice. Would highly recommend this course to anyone on the coaching journey that wants to work with a training company that is really invested in helping us learn and grow. Thank you!
