Level 5 Leadership – Berkshire


Summer 2016 – a one-off opportunity for managers to access accredited leadership training in Berkshire, at a special rate.

What impact does your leadership style have on the success of your team and organisation?

The ILM Level 5 Award in Leadership offers you an opportunity to develop your personal leadership skills and produce more effective results for your organisation. It will help you to inspire and support the people you work with.

The programme will build your confidence in influencing others in a positive way, and your skill in choosing the most effective style of leadership for a given situation. It will also include practical sessions on delegation and performance management.

We are running this programme on behalf of a client in Berkshire this summer and there is an opportunity for two managers to join on an open access basis.  This course is ideal for high potential managers who head up a sales or marketing team and are keen to both develop their team’s performance, and grow their own leadership skills.

There is a matching process for the remaining places, and if you are interested please contact us for an initial telephone discussion.

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.

The programme comprises an exciting combination of workshops and personal coaching.

It is a really useful course to start you thinking about leadership and management – both the theory and how you practically do it. Helps to convert your own practice from accidental leadership to considered and deliberate leadership.

Felicity was knowledgeable and inspirational in her delivery of the two day teaching sessions for the ILM level 5 in leadership. Her honest mentoring and interest in ‘exploring the greatness in others’ was a study in leadership. The group was challenged and motivated by the variety of learning methods that Felicity seamlessly employed. The ILM level 5 supports leaders at all levels.

Maggie was fantastic at giving relevant and highly personalised support both for the assessment and for my development. I found that having access to this support is essential to the effectiveness of the course. I would recommend the course to anyone wanting to develop their leadership style to create a more dynamic and happy team.

Is this programme for me?

This programme assumes a grounding in the principles of supervisory management.  You will already have supervisory experience and be in a management role. You will also have some responsibility or input into the strategic direction of your team.

Once you are working at this level, your development needs will be unique and personal to you.  You will bring your own mix of skills, experience, personal goals, personal challenges to the learning process, and you will be working within an organisation with its own particular culture, values and history.

Both Maggie and Felicity are passionate about facilitating a learning environment where mutual trust and support can develop. We aim to facilitate a quality learning experience for you, as well as the opportunity to gain a qualification.

This may suit you if you have existing responsibilities for leading and motivating people, or if you are ready to move into a role where you will have a greater need to influence and motivate those you supervise. You may wish to underpin your current practice with clearer knowledge of the principles of leadership, as well as achieve a nationally recognised qualification.  


Your investment in the programme is £795 inclusive of workshops, materials, individual coaching, tutorial support, ILM registration and studying membership, assessment and certification.


This is a time limited offer, available until 5 May 2016.
