What is the LEAP Programme?

Are you are taking your first step into a middle management role? 

This is a crucial time when you need to build your confidence and learn some tools and techniques to meet the challenge you face head on.

This ILM Level 5 Award in Leadership & Management has been designed to help you take your first step into a middle management role, and help you adjust to your new situation. We have named it the ‘LEAP programme’, as it will provide you with reassurance and additional skills to take the leap into management with greater conviction.
