ILM Level 3 Certificate in Leadership & Management

The ILM Level 3 Certificate in Leadership & Management programmes has been designed for individuals who have management responsibilities but no formal training, and are serious about developing their abilities. They particularly support practising team leaders seeking to move up to the next level of management and managers who need to lead people through organisational change, budget cuts or other pressures. They provide a solid foundation for their role of leader/manager in a business or organisation.

The courses are delivered through a combination of online and work-based learning to develop a range of leadership and management skills, both formally and through work-based learning. Programmes are split into modules, each with a blend of online learning and practical activities. Students submit an assignment for each module, from which they receive regular feedback, and these also form the basis of their assessment. In addition, each student is fully supported (by Skype or ‘phone) with their own dedicated management development tutor coach.

Research shows that ILM qualifications enhance an individual’s abilities and overall professional success.  Over 750,000 managers have taken an ILM qualification in the past 10 years and employers say 93% of managers perform better at work after an ILM qualification. Likewise, 78% of employers agree that recognised qualifications provide quality assurance for customers and that the benefits outweigh the time, money and effort invested in obtaining them.

ILM is the UK’s leading provider of leadership, management and coaching qualifications and a City and Guilds Group Business. ILM offers a specialist suite of qualifications ranging from Level 2 to Level 7, which are awarded by The City and Guilds of London Institute. All ILM qualifications have been accredited by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual).
