Make the leap from management material to outstanding first-line manager with a qualification from the UK's most respected leadership organisation.
You'll have the opportunity to master a wide range of essential management skills, including project management, budgeting, communication, innovation, and problem-solving.
You don't need any formal qualifications to enrol on this course.
However, you should be 18+ with at least two years' full-time (or three years' part-time) work experience, and you'll benefit most if you're a current or potential first-line manager.
Your course is fully online.
There are a wide variety of potential units, each worth 1 or 2 credits.
To achieve the Certificate, you'll choose a selection totalling 13 credits.

‘I previously studied with ICS Learn in the 1990s so I was delighted to find they offered ILM. They're friendly, knowledgeable and supportive. I got a promotion and found the Level 3 course helped me get established in the role.’

‘I learnt a lot whilst studying, much of which I could relate to my own workplace, which really brought the coursework to life and helped me to absorb the information. And I enjoyed interacting with my tutor regularly, who was very insightful and patient.’

‘My company takes ILM very seriously, and I have been recognised at work for progression. I get detailed feedback with every assignment within a short period of time, and find myself relating situations at work to the course - it’s helping me even before completion.’
