Over the last couple of years, we have seen a sharp increase in demand for accredited management and leadership programmes. Given that, I thought it would be useful to outline some of their benefits which will hopefully enable you to decide if its right for your organisation.

For clarity, we work with the Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM), Europe’s largest leadership accreditation body – delivering and assessing their ‘Recognised’ programmes.

By selecting an ILM recognised programme you can be guaranteed that the content and quality of delivery is of a high standard. This can be very reassuring when selecting a training provider in what is an extremely crowded and essentially unregulated marketplace.

  • All our recognised programmes include a robust assessment process which is usually made up of:
    – A portfolio of evidence capturing what the participants have learnt
    – A presentation detailing how they have applied the learning and its impact on them, their teams and the wider organisation
    All this greatly increases the levels of participant accountability ensuring that they are challenged to consider the application of the learning throughout any programme.
  • By working towards a recognised certificate, our programmes offer a real ‘what’s in it for me’ factor which in our experience greatly increases participant commitment and levels of application in and out of the ‘classroom’
  • The ‘recognised’ ILM programmes allow us greater flexibility in terms of duration and content, thereby putting the client’s objectives at the heart of everything we do. You need not be concerned that ‘accredited’ is in fact code for inflexible, bureaucratic and overly long!
  • We offer a range of recognised programmes for all types of organisation and all levels of manager, including 121 MDPs, New Managers, Senior Managers and Aspiring Leaders.

Do not hesitate to get in touch if you’d like to discuss how the ILM can enhance your next management programme. It’s much easier than you probably think and will almost certainly increase levels of engagement and overall impact.
