Become a strategic, inspiring, and forward-thinking senior leader with a qualification from the UK's most respected leadership organisation, the Institute of Leadership and Management.
ILM qualifications are highly prestigious: they’re awarded by the City & Guilds of London Institute, which was founded in 1878 and has a Royal Charter. They’re trusted by global organisations such as Santander to increase innovation, teamwork, and strategic thinking, and they train 70,000 managers each year.
With us, you can get the same globally respected ILM qualification as you would in a classroom, with all the benefits of flexible online learning:
This course is designed for mid-level managers who want to prepare for senior management roles.
You don't need any formal qualifications to enrol, but you should be 18+ with at least two years' full-time (or three years' part-time) work experience.
Your course is fully online and covers 3 in-depth units.
You'll learn to critically assess your own beliefs, attitudes and value systems, and evaluate the validity and usefulness of management theories in relation to these.
You'll learn to identify the need for change and master the art of proposing, managing and leading innovation using practical tools and leadership models.
You'll first fully understand the benefits and impact of effective leadership.
You'll then become aware of the effect your specific leadership style has on you, your teams and your organisation, and assess your leadership behaviour in terms of the factors which determine effective leadership.
Finally, you'll learn to develop your leadership style and effectiveness and become a truly inspirational leader.
Please note that where the course discusses legislation and policy, this will be based on UK law.
