Course Details for ILM Level 2 Award

You don't need any formal qualifications to enrol on this foundation course, but you must be 18+.

You'll benefit the most from the course if you're a current or potential team leader with at least two years' full-time (or three years' part-time) work experience.

Your course is fully online.

To achieve the Award, you'll need 3 credits.

You'll gain this by studying one mandatory unit, then either two 1-credit units or one 2-credit unit.

Mandatory unit (1 credit)

  • Developing Yourself as a Team Leader

Optional units (1 credit)

  • Improving the Performance of the Work Team
  • Developing the Work Team
  • Working within Organisational and Legal Guidelines
  • Maintaining a Healthy and Safe Work Environment
  • Briefing the Work Team

Optional units (2 credits)

  • Understanding Change in the Workplace
  • Planning and Monitoring Work
  • Business Improvement Techniques

For full details of what you’ll learn on each unit, download our ILM course guide.

If you'd like to broaden your skills, you could study the Level 2 Certificate, which allows you to study 13 credits rather than 3.

You'll complete one assessment for each unit you study, consisting of short questions and written tasks.

You'll submit these online and they'll be marked by your ILM tutor.

- Judith Martin

Meredith Cade Westcombe Ilm L5

'ILM will give me a sense of self-achievement, evidence of formal learning and provide transferable skills as I work towards my next promotion. My tutor has been so supportive, and I would highly recommend ICS Learn to anyone.'
- Meredith Cade-Westcombe

ILM Level 2 qualifications are designed for current or aspiring team leaders and supervisors. They're perfect if you're just starting out in your management career.

You could study the comprehensive Level 2 Certificate or this course, the shorter Level 2 Award.

ILM Level 3 qualifications are for junior and first-line managers. They're ideal if you have (or will have) management responsibilities but have no formal training.

Choose between the wide-ranging Level 3 Certificate or the bite-sized Level 3 Award.

ILM Level 5 qualifications are designed for middle managers and department heads. They're set at undergraduate level and will develop and extend your existing leadership skills.

Study three units on the Level 5 Certificate, or two on the Level 5 Award.

We offer leadership and management qualifications from two world-class awarding bodies, the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and the Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM).

Both are highly prestigious, internationally recognised, and will give a huge boost to your skills and career – so how do you choose which one is right for you?

Firstly, it depends on where you are in your management career. We offer the following CMI and ILM qualifications:

If you’re a manager choosing between ILM and CMI, there are a few things to consider.

If you’re looking to become a Chartered Manager, then CMI is right for you. The CMI is the only professional body in the world that can bestow Chartered Manager status.

CMI qualifications are also ideal if you want to deep dive into professional leadership theory and practice. You’ll study fewer modules than on an ILM qualification, but you’ll cover each topic in greater depth.

CMI courses are highly strategic in focus, making them perfect if you want to develop your high-level strategic management knowledge.

ILM qualifications, on the other hand, are highly practical, focused on helping you apply your workforce management skills in real-life situations.

They’re great if you want to touch on a broader range of hands-on management topics, as the modules are shorter than CMI, allowing you to study more subjects in less depth.

Still not sure? Get in touch with our course advisors by email, phone, or online chat – we’ll be happy to help.
