ILM L5 Certificate in Leadership & Management

Our Level 5 Leadership and Management Programme delivers a senior management development plan that enables delegates to achieve at either Award or Certificate standard. This is a comprehensive programme designed to support practising and aspiring middle to senior managers to improve their performance and strategic awareness in the delivery of their senior management responsibilities. Line manager to senior manager is a big step up. Senior managers still have people management responsibility however, they also need to provide direction, facilitate innovation and manage the effectiveness of the wider business. Senior managers need technical knowledge, strategic insight and practical expertise which is not something a senior manager gains over night. Our course, accredited by the ILM, will provide an in-depth understanding of the nuances of people management, leadership and business best practice whilst also analysing the aspiring senior manager’s ability to take on the role of people management and strategic responsibility. 

Completion of this course requires delegates to submit assignments within the deadlines communicated at the start of each module. To obtain the certificate, you will need to complete three assignments. For the award, you will need to complete two. 

Sessions will take place via Zoom.
