ILM Level 5 Award in Leadership and Management

This six day course is aimed at those in an organisation with people management responsibilities. Delegates should attend this programme if they have been promoted from Team leader or Supervisor to manage business units or departments with broad responsibilities for engaging their teams to delivering result. This is also suitable for those in line for succession to such roles. The course will aid them in assessing their own skills and abilities and extend their knowledge and skills of leadership and management techniques.

The course is accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) and focuses on the two broad areas of leadership and management. The training is practical and participative as well as being linked back to the workplace to enable delegates to put their learning into practice. Make UK also includes a non-assessed module raising awareness of the legal context of managing people which compliments organisational compliance training delivered in a ‘best practice’ approach. Delegates will gain excellent insight into all aspects of managing people, setting them up for success in their roles.
