Course Code: OV-ILM

  • 3 x half-day live session delivered virtually or in-person | 6-8 hrs on-demand learning | 30-minute coaching session (optional extra for teams)

  • This is available for groups and teams

This intensive and practical course provides supervisors and line managers with a recognized qualification whilst sharing insight and learning on the fundamentals of management and the core skills required for the new manager.
Awarded by ILM, the Level 3 Award in Leadership and Management can generate significant payback for employers and individual managers in terms of improving quality, efficiency and effectiveness in your workplace. The course provides a toolkit of techniques to apply upon return to the workplace, and you will leave with a personal action plan to support you on your journey to becoming a great manager.

Suitable for supervisors, team leaders and line managers who are new or fairly new to the role or who have had no previous training in people management. It is also suitable for those who are looking to be promoted into a management position.

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Describe the role of the leader and identify your own leadership style
  • Create opportunities to develop and maintain credibility and trust within your team

In order to get the most useful learning from your time on this course, there are a few tasks we would like to ask you to complete prior to attendance.
During the course we will look at the different roles that people take on within teams. In preparation for this, we would like to ask you to complete an online questionnaire. This questionnaire is brief and should take you no more than approximately 20 minutes. You will be emailed a link to the questionnaire.
When you have completed the questionnaire, your results will be forwarded to the trainer who will give you an opportunity to discuss them during the course.
Identify a current or past conflict scenario that has happened within the workplace, this is to help you with the Conflict Handling module. The conflict does not have to have been with you and someone else - it can be, but doesn‘t have to be. Please make notes on what happened, and be prepared to share this scenario in a small group.
Thank you for spending time in preparation and we hope you find the course beneficial.

Assessment
Each delegate must complete three assignments. These assignments vary in depth and are due to be completed and handed in eight weeks after completion of the course. As part of this award, you will be offered two hours of tutorial support. You should plan to spend approximately 6 hours researching your workplace context, preparing for and writing or presenting the outcomes of this assignment for assessment. The 'nominal' word count for this assignment is 1000 words: the suggested range is between 800 and 1200 words.
