LeadNorthern - The Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM)
What is ILM at Northern?
The Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) www.i-l-m.com is the UK's leading organisation in leadership and management qualifications and Northern College has a strong partnership with them.
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 organisation’s 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 of groups which enlivens students in a thought provoking and encouraging way.
Within the Levels of qualification we offer, there are two strands available:
- 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.
