Level 5 Programme Overview

The ILM Level 5 Award in Leadership explores leadership roles and theories, self-leadership, emotional intelligence, winning and maintaining commitment, and setting and communicating direction.


“This is the first time I have undertaken a qualification like this using webinars and a workbook to learn through each module. I was nervous at first as I wasn’t sure how I would find it but I have so enjoyed being in control of the pace that I learn at. It has made me think in a different way and I have found it far easier to learn like this than through traditional lectures/seminars.”
