ILM Level 3 Award in Leadership and Management

One of the main responsibilities of a manager is to make sure that employees are satisfied with their job and reaching their full potential. A manager who can energise his or her employees will have a team which has a much greater potential and capability of achieving company goals and objectives. It is therefore vital that a manager has the essential skills to fully support and lead their team to success.

This programme brings together the key leadership skills that you will need to be an effective manager so that you can return to the workplace and deliver tangible results.

ILM 3 Award in Leadership and Management via Zoom™ Video Conferencing

ILM Level 3 Award in Leadership and Mangement Video Conference Training Session

We now offer the ILM Level 3 Award in Leadership and Management course via Zoom™ video conferencing. This option brings together the best parts of classroom and online training. Not only do you benefit from a real person facilitating the programme, but it also allows you to attend from anywhere in the world without having to travel and attend at a physical classroom location.

The course content is exactly the same as the 2-day classroom course, but instead of having you sit and stare at a computer for two solid days, we split it up into four half-day sessions. We find that this is the optimal delivery method; not only for retaining the information, but it is also much easier on your eyes!

The flexibility of this programme and method of delivery means that we can offer 1-2-1 sessions exclusively for you, as well as scheduling the days around work/personal commitments.

Please click on the button below to enrol on this course. After receiving your booking, we will contact you to arrange suitable dates according to what works best for you.
