The FEEL program is the ILCA path to language coaching certification. Each of the four courses are delivered via both self study and synchronous training formats. All courses include full access to the ILCA course platform and a community of language coaching peers. The programs have a weekly live session to practice and explore concepts that arise for you in the modules. You may begin your self-study course work and receive access to the ILCA community at any time.
Each FEEL course builds on the one before. This course will up-skill you and redefine how you work with learners and clients.
You are eligible to receive a Certificate of Completion by completing each course, which is upgradeable to Certificate of Achievement on completion of all FEEL levels.
Both are ambitious CPD opportunities, with flexibility in mind and both provide mindful, heartfelt support from ILCA to help you move from intuition to awareness and beyond.

"I honestly didn’t think I would be learning so much in this course which went, as far as I’m concerned, beyond just “foundations”. This training was a perfect mix of theoretical knowledge and hands on practice. Working with a group of people from around the world which were equally curious, motivated and generous with their knowledge was unexpected and wonderful." - Feriel
"To be quite frank, I leaped into trying coaching with one student of mine after our first ILCA session. I felt unsure about what I was doing, my questions lacked sequencing, all in all, I wanted to give it a try and was I surprised - the student loved it and I learned new things about the student after 4 months of working together. From 20 minutes of coaching, both of us realized more than in the previous 4 months of weekly sessions and discussions - true story". - Slobodan
"Both Gabriella Kovacs and Carrie McKinnon - ILCA founders and course leaders - showed professionalism in terms of knowledge on the subject and bags of experience on how to lead a Coaching interview, what to say and what not to say. During the sessions there is also plenty of room for discussion, questions and feedback from all participants. Thank you ILCA for leading me into the world of Language Coaching in a way that suited my needs: you showed both professionalism and approachability and that was a plus. " - Alessandra
