Leadership & Management

The Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM)
What is ILM at Northern College?

The Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) is the UK’s leading organisation in leadership and management qualifications and Northern College has a strong partnership with them (www.i-l-m.com).

We understand that the most valuable commodity of any organisation is its people, so strong leadership and management is key to organisational success. It ensures focused strategic thinking, progressive problem solving, motivated staff and, importantly, a positive encouraging work culture.

The demands on employers for compliance mean that many organisations need evidence of recognised training for their management teams which the ILM certainly offers.

Our ILM courses offers a thorough grounding in all aspects of leadership and management enmeshed with our social purpose perspective which prepares students to be the sort of leaders who can make a big difference back at work. Our teaching approach includes working in a ‘Thinking Environment’ and encourages working in groups which enlivens students in a thought provoking and encouraging way.

Within the levels of qualification, we offer two strands:

  • Leadership and Management for a Social Purpose focused on people working in the voluntary and community organisations
  • Sector Specific Leadership and Management taught with the employer’s subject specific requirements in mind. For instance, the construction industry
Level 2 Award in Effective Team Skills

This course focuses on your role within a team and develops your knowledge of foundation theory for working in a team.

This is a good course for people thinking about re-entering work, evidencing an understanding of team working skills on a CV, or to develop a more effective working team.

Level 2 Award in Leadership and Team Skills

This Award is designed to help boost a delegate's performance as a team member and help you make the transition from working within a team to leading a team.

It will help individuals to be more effective and confident within their role and help boost organisational performance. Often individuals can develop far beyond their expectations at the outset.

The award and certificate are designed for people who work in or are aspiring to be a team leader.

Delegates will develop their skills to become more effective within their working roles and help their organisations thrive.
