ILM Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management

We are delighted to announce the dates for the next level 5 diploma programme. We have updated the content again and we still concentrate on improving your personal and professional development and developing key skills essential for leading and managing effective teams. You will learn essential practical elements of being an effective leader and manager. The diploma is designed to assist you in bringing best practice and skills in leadership and management back to your organisation.


ILM Level 5 certificate (leading to the diploma) in coaching and mentoring

Back by popular demand is the three day effective coaching and mentoring in the workplace programme. This programme has been reviewed and tutorials and workbooks are now in place to assist students in meeting the awarding organisation's assessment requirements no matter if you choose the certificate or the diploma route. The difference between the certificate and diploma is the number of coaching and/or mentoring hours you can evidence.


TQUK Level 3 Award in Education and Training

The Award is an introductory qualification for anyone wanting to teach or train others. It will not fully qualify you as a teacher, but it will give you a good idea of what it’s like to teach. You can then take a further teaching qualification if required. The Award is ideal if you are not yet in a teaching role, have just started teaching, or just want to know what’s involved. It is the first step on the teaching qualifications' ladder. At the induction session on 14 September we will discuss specific details of the course and discuss your specialist subject.
