What is The Challenge Programme ?

Are you looking to take that next step in challenging your practice as a leader and manager?

Do you hope to get the best from yourself and from those you work with?

Our ILM Level 5 Certificate in Leadership & Management is for managers who are hoping to get the best from themselves and those they work with. We have named the qualification the ‘Challenge Programme’ because it will teach you to challenge your thinking and meet the challenges you face head-on.

Who is it for?

This qualification is designed for potential middle managers, department heads and other practising managers. It is for anyone who wants to identify ways to transfer knowledge into action, and explore how self-knowledge and awareness contributes to good leadership.

What will you learn?

The programme consists of three strands which explore ‘the self’, ‘the team’ and ‘the organisation’ in relation to your own leadership and skills development. Embedded in each strand are the concepts of knowing, being and doing; taking the learner through a journey from understanding to embodiment.

Why choose this course?

  • Understand the key principles of effective management
  • Use tools and techniques to face management challenges head on
  • Develop your ability to lead, motivate and inspire

Prices depend on the type of delivery. You can join an open course at one of our University campuses (price below), or we can offer a more cost effective solution for programmes run in-house at your organisation for groups of up to 15 people.
