About us

Our passion is developing skilled and ethical coaches. Looking after you flexibly is what we do best, with plenty of structure and resources whatever your style of learning. We have over 20 years experience in training and development across a wide range of business sectors and organisations. We can help you achieve your  ILM qualifications, with a great team of tutors, facilitators and executive coaches to support you wherever you are in your learning journey.


At inspired2learn we are proud of our customer service and personal regard for everyone we with work with. We really do care and we are very proud of our reputation and client relationships. We are professional in everything we do and genuinely care about the quality of our service and delivery.

Our ambition is to be the most well-regarded and reputable provider of ILM qualifications in the UK. We love sharing our experience, knowledge and enthusiasm. We offer high quality support and resources. The inspired2learn team is fully invested in their CPD and learning and we continually seek opportunities to broaden our depth of knowledge and experience so that we can be at our best to support you.

Every member of our trusted team is highly qualified, with a wealth of demonstrable coaching, leadership and commercial experience behind them. Whatever support you need, someone within our highly skilled team is likely to be the right ‘fit’ for you. You will be trained by Clare Smale, winner of the EMCC Global Coaching Award 2023, plus guest presenters.


Just get in touch to find out more about how we might be able to help you. We never ‘sell’ our courses or qualifications, but instead will listen to what you need and  then offer some impartial advice. We will happily send you more information and we won’t push you to enrol or commit to anything you’re unsure about. When you are investing in your development it is important to find what is right for you, even if that means recommending another route that we can’t help you with directly.

We are very proud of the unprecedented level of tutorial support we offer. We pride ourselves on a personal touch and a genuine desire to look after learners. We’ve undertaken professional qualifications ourselves, and know how it feels to write assignments and sometimes feel overwhelmed. Our support is professional, flexible and personalised.

Our team of tutors have a wealth of industry experience, incluidng schools, further and higher education, the armed forces, events management, HR, civil service, police, local authority, retail and L&D. All the tutors are highly qualified in their field and many of them also run their own consultancy, training or coaching business. 

We are a sociable and supportive bunch, based across the UK. We meet regularly to share best practice, get creative and problem solve, all with the best interest of our clients in mind. You can find out more about us below.
