About the course

ILM is the UK’s premier organisation for leadership and management, offering more leadership and management qualifications than any other awarding body.  Not only are the ILM qualifications industry-standard, ranging from team leader programmes to diplomas for senior directors, but they help retain and motivate staff too.

ILM also connect a community of 35,000 leaders and managers committed to making a real difference to their organisations. They’ve become better managers by receiving the professional recognition and management support that comes with ILM membership.

Through real-life application and independent research, ILM and CSC know what makes a good manager and a motivating leader. We’re both passionate about the difference good leadership and management makes to individual and organisational success and are delighted to work in partnership for your experience.

The Level 3 Award and Certificate in Leadership and Management are ideal for individuals who are new to managing and/or have first line management responsibilities but no formal training, and are serious about developing their abilities. These courses particularly support practising team leaders seeking to move up to the next level of management, and managers who need to lead people though organisational change, budget cuts or other pressures.

The course consists of 2 units:

Leading and Motivating a Team This unit is designed to enable learners to understand the need for teams to have a sense of vision and purpose that reflects the organisation’s, and the role that effective communication, motivation and individual and team development play in enabling this to happen.

Planning and Allocating Work This unit enables the learner to develop knowledge and understanding of how to plan and allocate work as required by a practising or potential first line manager.


All applicants will be assessed individually taking into consideration previous experience and qualification. Learners MUST be in a position to meet the assessment demands, which are typically work-based and reflective in nature.  Ideally learners should use their workplace as the basis for their assignments.  However, learners who are not employed could use their work in a voluntary organisation or work in an organisation with which they are familiar to complete their assignments.

It is vital that students are able to commit 3 / 4 hours additional study time during each week between lectures and are able to produce written assignments of between 1,500 and 2,000 words to demonstrate an understanding of each unit's learning.  The assessments vary from essays to reports with observation of student's practical skills included in the course.  Although some support will be given in producing written work it is important that students have a good understanding and level of written English at the commencement of the course. 


This is based on a combination of group and individual written assignments/reports and presentations.
