The ILM Level 5 in Project Management is aimed at project managers and consists of 4 modules which is delivered as a 4 day experiential learning and development programme; this degree level qualification is tailored to meet the varying needs of learners from across all employment sectors.

It focuses on the practicalities of project management from a delivery perspective and is helps delegates develop the skills needed to become an inspirational project leader as well as a project manager, this tools based programme will give you the core skills needed to be able to manage and lead a project successfully.

Successful project management and leadership comes through the engagement and empowerment of your project team.

The reason we run this course as a four day residential in the Lakes is that we share with you some of the tools which we use to inspire and empower teams who we develop from across all sectors, we not only show you how to use some of our team development tools, you also get to take away these at the end of the programme to use with your project teams post course.

What is required of you?

Becoming a more effective project manager and leader involves delegates in a complex process of changing behaviours, based on an understanding of leadership and on the development of a range of personal and interpersonal skills.

Simply understanding what leadership involves, or developing insight into the effect of one’s own emotional state or values on decision-making, or being good at communicating with others is not sufficient, although each is a necessary component of any project management leadership role.

It is the synthesis of this that enables effective leaders to recognise the effect of their own behaviours on other people and on the organisation, and to manage those behaviours to achieve the goals that they have agreed.

Our ILM Level 5 in Project Management programme places great emphasis on developing this ability; if you are to continue to improve your performance beyond the programme itself – hence the results driven focus.

This is an important characteristic of all successful project leaders that they can reflect on their experiences and learn from them – effective leaders are not afraid of making mistakes, only of repeating mistakes.

This ability, to learn and develop, is integral to this programme.
