ILM Courses and Qualifications

The business world is changing at a considerable pace. New styles of working are emerging, bringing increased expectations and fresh management challenges. Businesses need confident leaders, not just at the helm but at every level of their organisation. Yet, leadership remains the number one talent issue facing organisations. Deloitte's UK Human Capital Trends 2019 survey found that less than 10% of organisations felt that their leadership programmes were effective in preparing leaders to face the digital economy's challenges. Equipping your existing and emerging leaders with the skills they need to face these challenges adequately and confidently is crucial to business success. ILM qualifications can help you do that.

Why ILM courses and qualifications?

ILM forms part of the prestigious City and Guilds group and is the UK's leading specialist provider of leadership, coaching and management qualifications. ILM courses and qualifications are also recognised internationally. Employers and employees highly value ILM qualifications as they provide theoretical knowledge and ensure learners develop practical skills to stand out as a leader. Over 70,000 learners commence study for an ILM qualification each year, and 9 out of 10 learners saying they're able to apply the leadership and management skills they learned to their day-to-day role and would recommend ILM. When it comes to organisations who enrol their employees on ILM training programmes, 8 out of 10 organisations report a return on their investment within the first year.

Depending on the training programme and modules you choose, ILM courses and qualifications enable learners to master a wide range of leadership and management skills, including:

  • Communication, delegation and critical thinking
  • Motivating themselves and others to improve performance
  • Problem-solving and making decisions
  • Managing health and safety
  • Leading innovation and change
  • Manage resources to achieve objectives
  • Developing a high performing team
  • Coaching and mentoring
  • Recruit and manage people.

Learners will also understand how to improve their emotional intelligence, build resilience and care for the wellbeing of their teams.
