What ILM Leadership & Management courses offer?

The ILM Level 3 Award and Certificate in Leadership & Management are designed for those currently handling management responsibilities, who possibly have no formal management training or qualifications. Those in this position, who are serious about pursuing their management career, will benefit considerably from this course.

This course is ideal for those who wish to progress to a more senior level of management, as it will equip them with the skills required to take on leadership tasks such as guiding their team through periods of transition. These skills provide a solid foundation on which to develop a career in leadership and management.

What you learn

The skills developed as part of the ILM Level 3 Leadership & Management course will help to improve your skills as a leader, exploring the abilities required for effective leadership and also how to reflect on your own capabilities in this area. The latter means it is an excellent foundation for further self-development moving forward.

The Award at Level 3 consists of two modules:

  • Understanding Leadership
  • Solving Problems and Making Decisions

The Certificate of Level 3 consists of six modules:

  • Understanding Leadership
  • Solving Problems and Making Decisions
  • Understand How to Establish an Effective Team
  • Understanding How to Motivate to Improve Performance
  • Planning and Allocating Work
  • Management Communication

The additional modules on the Certificate level course are designed to broaden the skills of participants, by sharpening their instincts in leadership matters and providing opportunities to put these skills into practice in real working environments. The course also provides insight in key management areas including team building, staff motivation, workload allocation, and management communication.

Student benefits

Our leadership and management courses benefit students in a number of ways, by both improving their skills and equipping them with a recognised qualification. This will demonstrate a range of management skills which can be applied across many professional environments, including the ability to motivate and guide a team, and more.


Organisational benefits

For organisations, the major benefit of these courses is that employees are trained to a high level, meaning they have a number of personnel with leadership abilities who can guide teams on the ground and a number of ready-made candidates for management positions which may open up.

Delivery methods

Our courses are designed to work flexibly, allowing for busy professionals to undertake the programme of learning alongside their day to day role.

The courses are delivered through a combination of online and work based learning, designed to aid in the development of a wide range of leadership and management skills. The modules for each course are delivered through both practical activities and online projects, and students must undertake an assignment for each module. They will receive feedback on these assignments from their own dedicated management coach as part of their assessment for each module.


The Level 3 courses in Leadership & Management have been specifically designed to allow for a smooth and successful progression to further learning for those participants who wish to continue their development.
