The ONLY organisation dedicated to represent
buyers of coaching and mentoring services

We are here to PROMOTE Coaching and Mentoring

In order that YOU gain the personal benefits that arise from high quality Coaching and Mentoring.
Coaching and Mentoring are often difficult to precisely define, but it's generally agreed that it is a one to one relationship where one person is assisting another with an agreed agenda.

Credibility and Legitimacy

The IRCM is the only voluntary regulator approved by the Regulator of Community Interest Companies; the Regulator appointed by the United Kingdom, Secretary of State from Business Innovation & Skills, formally known as Department of Trade & Industry. In short, the Regulator of Community Interest Companies provides us with the authority do what our objects prescribe and we have to provide a report each year to this department to show what we have done to support the coaching and mentoring industry.

For buyers:
HERE is the "Place to Start"; the independent platform to find out about your Coach or Mentor, but Coaches and Mentors are buyers too. Buyers of training and accreditation services.

For Coaches and Mentors:
This is YOUR opportunity to show independent verification of your credibility and legitimacy. To confirm to the world you have the basic elements in place to protect and support your customers.

To be shown here as APPROVED, the Coach or Mentor has confirmed:

  1. they abide by a Code of Ethics
  2. they conduct themselves according to a Code of Conduct
  3. they deal with Complaints properly

These 3 issues are the initial and minimum conduct requirements by regulators around the world.
Go to the page - Approval - and see our versions. We offer the opportunity to copy ours, which we consider to set out our view of fairness and proper dealing.

We are a voluntary regulator. If someone is shown as "Not yet approved", it means no more than that. You should read into this that either they do not yet know of our existence, or have chosen not to support this iniative.
