Does your team have new or aspiring junior managers? ILM Level 3 Diploma in Leadership and Management qualification consists of 22 units, helping you build the perfect balance of the core skills needed to have great managers in your team - rather than an average ones.

How it works

Being a manager requires a great deal of patience, determination, and talent. Together with the right attitude and skills needed to be a great manager, offering the ILM Level 3 Diploma will help you stand out from the crowd, attracting the best talent to your business.

This programme is aimed at existing junior management and takes commitment, and a willingness to release your staff for their monthly learning appointment. Learners will work predominantly online, but with additional personal coach support- approx 1-2 hours per month. Learners will be expected to complete some elements of learning every month, to ensure that their knowledge and skills continue to grow throughout the duration of the course- approximately 6-9 months.

Requirements for Course Entry

There are no formal entry requirements to enrol on this ILM Level 3 Diploma in Leadership and Management course.
