Level 3 Award (ILM) in Leadership and Management


Please note that bookings cannot be placed for the ILM. A new Inclusive Leadership Programme is starting in Michaelmas 2019 and will cover the same key areas as the ILM, including leadership styles, effective communication and effective problem solving. These will be framed within the context of making fair and consistent management decisions. Please search for 'Inclusive Leadership Programme' here on the University Training Booking System to view current events, and note that additional dates will be released.

This programme offers an introduction to management skills and is externally accredited by the Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM). It is highly participative and there is a strong emphasis on applying new learning to your work situation for the benefit of your team and your department.

The course is primarily aimed at those who currently have management responsibilities for others (including managers, team leaders or supervisors) or equivalent responsibilities (e.g. for managing services, projects, resources).
