ILM Level 5
Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM)
The Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) is an internationally recognised management-awarding body. ILM qualifications are aligned with the UK’s Qualifications & Credit Framework (QCF) and accredited by the Office of Qualifications & Examinations Regulation (Ofqual).
Levels of Certification
ILM qualifications range from Level 2 to 7. Elite Training delivers Levels 2, 3 & 5.
Organisations choose from a list of modules to make up the necessary accreditation (i.e. Level 2, 3 or 5). Once completed, delegates are awarded a Unit Certification for the Level obtained. Extra modules are available for delegates wishing to increase the number of Credit Values (CVs) they obtain (more modules = more CVs). Once the additional modules are completed, delegates obtain a Full Award, Certificate of Diploma, for that level.
Therefore, in each level, delegates can achieve:
- Unit accreditation;
- Award accreditation;
- Certification Accreditation;
- Diploma Accreditation. (NB: Diploma level not offered by Elite Training.)
Duration: 4 days minimum, depending on modules selected.
Delegates must obtain 6 credits minimum (2-3 modules) to achieve the Level 5 Award in Leadership & Management. The course content prepares delegates for the necessary assignments (see module options below).
