ILM Approved Centre

Professional development with a difference

The Academy of Leadership & Management is an ILM and SFEDI approved learning centre committed to developing outstanding leaders and managers, coaches and mentors, and business advisers. Our approach is results focused while providing a personalised learning experience for both students and organisations. We are also an Institute of Enterprise & Entrepreneurs Academy.

We strive to make professional development as engaging, rewarding, and accessible as possible: delivering ILM courses through a combination of practical work based programmes and distance learning. Our courses are designed to fir the specific needs of every individual or organisation, leading to globally recognised qualifications.

We recognise that every student comes to us with their own unique skill sets, experience, and ambitions. We tailor our courses to develop skills in key areas and work towards achieving individual and organisational goals. Uniquely, all of our individual students are assigned their own personal coach who will work with them on a one-to-one basis during their courses.

ILM courses for all levels

We offer a wide range of courses covering many levels of leadership and management, suitable for those just beginning their career to those with years of management experience already under their belt.

Our leadership and management courses range from Level 3 (first line managers) to Level 7 (senior managers). In many cases, completion of these courses can offer progression routes into higher education at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Our coaching & mentoring courses range from Level 3 (workplace coaching) to Level 7 (executive coaching and mentoring). We also offer a range of SFEDI courses for sales professionals and advisers providing advice and support to businesses.

Personal development and organisational training

We work with both individuals and organisations looking to pursue professional development and improve their skill sets. Our courses can be tailored and delivered as part of learning and development initiatives for an organisation or team. These are a great way to improve organisational performance, boost staff morale and equip your people with the knowledge and skills required to be more effective in their roles.

We also offer flexible and cost-effective distance learning programmes which allow individuals to guide their own personal development and improve their skills on a schedule that works for them. The key to the success of our distance learning is that we always retain the personal touch – all individual students have their own tutor or executive coach, based on their level of study.
