ILM, what's all the fuss about?

ILM is the UK’s leading provider of leadership, management and coaching qualifications, and a City & Guilds Group Business. It offers a specialist suite of qualifications ranging from Level 2 to Level 7, which are awarded by The City and Guilds of London Institute.

ILM also specialises in assessment, learning content, recognition and the accreditation of high quality training in the fields of leadership, management and coaching. Not only are ILM’s qualifications industry-standard, ranging from team leading to for programmes for senior directors, but they help retain and motivate staff too. Developing leaders at all levels of an organisation is increasingly important, as UK organisations are facing an unprecedented leadership challenge. The UKCES recently predicted that we will need half a million new managers by 2020, and research from ILM found that more than a quarter (28%) of employees are lacking a trustworthy or inspirational leader whilst just 31% of employers feel confident in their supply of leadership talent for the next three to five years. Through real-life application and independent research, we know what makes a good manager and a motivating leader. At Smart People we are passionate about the difference good leadership and management makes to individual and organisational success. You can find case studies that show the tangible impact of ILM qualifications and training here. Regulated Qualifications Achieving a regulated professional qualification makes a statement about an individual’s approach to their personal and professional development. An ILM qualification demonstrates that the holder not only understands the importance of learning, but by putting that understanding and new knowledge into practice, has demonstrated that their actions have had a positive impact on a work organisation. By choosing ILM, you will be joining the 70,000 people who register for an ILM qualification every year. More employers choose ILM than any other specialist awarding body because it offers a wide range of qualifications covering all aspects of leadership and management, along with specialist programmes in coaching and mentoring, and enterprise. Combining innovative design with a strong focus on developing workplace performance, ILM qualifications and training are designed to meet the needs of organisations and their managers. All successful learners will receive a certificate of attainment to mark their achievement
