The Institute of Leadership and Management offers a wide range of qualifications covering all aspects of leadership and management. Last year 90,000 people registered for an ILM qualification, gaining the crucial skills and knowledge to improve their performance at work. The Level 2 qualifications in Leadership and Team Skills are ideal for practicing team leaders, helping them become more effective and confident in their role. They also support new or aspiring team leaders helping them make the transition from working in a team to leading one.
