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.

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 full Certificate consists of 5 units (the first 2 of which make up the Award)
