This course aims to provide you with the skills and knowledge to lead, organise and motivate teams. This qualification is ideal if you have management responsibilities, but no formal training, and are serious about developing your abilities. It's particularly suited to practising team leaders seeking to move up to the next level of management, and managers who lead people through organisational change, budget cuts or other pressures. The course will also help those aiming to progress into supervisory or management roles, to demonstrate the skills and abilities needed to become leaders or managers.
The assessment method for this course is via a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). At the start of the course you will should identify an organisation you know well in order to relate the theory of Leadership and Management in a real world situation.
A qualified Assessor will mark your work and provide written feedback via the VLE. Your appointed Assessor will confirm contact hours once you start your learning and will be able to offer support via email correspondence. During Induction you will be provided with a Study Plan including the expected assessment schedule for your course.
Each unit includes specific Learning Outcomes and Assessment Criteria. To achieve a Pass in any assessment you must meet all criteria. The list of detailed Assessment Criteria for each Unit is made available to you on the VLE.
We offer the ILM course with contextualised workbooks for the following sectors:
The qualification you are awarded is the same, Level 3 Diploma in Leadership and Management, but the course workbooks are written with the work setting in mind. Some learners find the customised workbooks helpful. Your preference can be indicated prior to induction by e-mailing the ELearning Administration Team. If you do not specify a version then the standard version will apply, which is still suitable across professions.
East Sussex College Hastings offer a 14-day Induction Period for this course which enables you to assess whether both the course and the online mode of study is suitable for you. It also allows the College to assess your suitability, in particular whether you can produce work to meet the standards set by ILM, the awarding body.
The induction is conducted online so you don't have to travel to our campus. During the week you will receive your login details to the VLE and a welcome phone call from your assessor to discuss how to attempt the induction unit. You will be sent a deadline/due date by e-mail which allows you two weeks to submit answers to the induction assessment.
If you don't meet the pass criteria for the induction assessment you won't be enrolled onto the course and you won't have any fee liability. You will not incur any fees during the induction period, or have any outstanding loans to re-pay. Enrolment onto the qualification will take place once you have passed the induction assessment and have funding in place for the course fees.
If you take out an Advanced Learner Loan to cover your fees, then this will be activated 14 days from the course start date.
If you wish to withdraw, you may cancel your enrolment by notifying the Administration Team in writing (by e-mail) prior to day 14 and you will owe nothing. After 14 days, you will be charged a percentage of the course fee plus an administration fee (Tuition Fee Policy).
