II&M is the preferred Accreditation Body for Coaches, Mentors, Training Providers and Clients.creating excellence in the coaching and mentoring professions. The IIC&M is an organisation that is passionate about and dedicated to raising the professionalism of coaching and mentoring worldwide. We are delighted to be one of the largest officially recognised professional accreditation bodies in existence
The IIC&M (originally the ECI) was formed in 1999 as a not-for-profit organisation to be a force for good in coaching. It was founded by and continues to be run by professional coaches. The IIC&M is an internationally-focused organisation; building, maintaining, raising awareness, and working to promote best practices, while providing value added benefits to its Members.
Continuing improvement in Coaching has been a concern of the IIC&M since 1999. Voluntary accreditation is enshrined in IIC&M policy, but in several countries steps are being taken on a national level towards mandatory accreditation, coupled with legal or professional re-certification or re-licensing and the establishment of an industry standard promoted within all areas of work. This will lead towards an increasing need to a standard of accreditation, obtained by individual Coaches, Mentors and Training Providers.
In 1999 a group of concerned coaches came together to establish the IIC&M, originally formed as the ECI, under the leadership of Ben Botes as the original founder and CEO. Ben was ably supported by Aina Egeberg who was head of Erikson Coach Training in the UK. The initial focus was on life coaching but this was quickly changed to embrace all areas of coaching, including Business, Executive, and Corporate coaching. In 2013 a group of concerned professional mentors joined the IIC&M to include accreditation for both mentors and mentor training providers.
The IIC&M facilitates access to quality accreditation for Coaches, Mentors, and to Clients; contributes to the quality of accreditation and ensures that availability of a high standard of Coach or Mentor Training. Quality control of Coaching, Mentoring and Coach or Mentor Training is a key element in this process. It was decided to effect this by forming an accreditation body catering specifically for the Coaching and Mentoring Industry, using the expertise of qualified and experienced Coaches and Mentors active in their fields.
