The coaching and mentoring industry is the second fastest-growing industry in the world. A report on the growth of the coaching industry in 2023 on, explores this and has some interesting data. Here are just a couple of mind-blowing statistics:  

  • Annual coaching revenue is up 62% from 2019
  • There are 109,200 coaches worldwide, that’s 54% more than in 2019

With statistics such as these, it’s hardly surprising the coaching industry as a whole is on a mission to maintain its credibility and effectiveness, whilst always striving to deliver the highest standards of coaching and mentoring.

Driving Standards Globally

The IAPC&M has members: accredited coaches/mentors and training providers, all around the globe. 

As an international accreditation body, they are ideally placed to support and drive standards up within the coaching/mentoring industry.  

The IAPC&M have remained mindful that their overriding mission is to protect the end user: potential students seeking coach training, or clients looking for a coach/mentor/trainer at the forefront of their mind. 

Working with leading bodies to drive the industry forward

By working directly with regulatory bodies and ombudsman associations the IAPC&M not only adheres to its own strict standards, it also influences the future of the coaching/mentoring industry. 

In Europe, the IAPC&M is approved by the International Regulator for Coaching & Mentoring (IRCM) to protect the public.

Stateside, the IAPC&M is excited to announce “We are now in The United States Ombudsman Association”

The IAPC&M believe that when quality, rather than profit, is the frontline motivator. Therefore, members can be assured there is no compromise on standards.
