ILM Courses: Internationally Recognised Qualifications in Leadership & Management:

Our Approach:

We recognise there can be a difference between obtaining a qualification and learning and the results can be very different too! Here at NGA we want to help our participants in their learning and their personal and professional development, and for that to carry across into their sphere of work.

We normally deliver our training sessions here at our superbly equipped CBX premises. We can also provide in-house solutions where an organisation has a minimum of 6 delegates and would welcome enquiries.

Our approach is highly flexible, using focused workshops that reduce the amount of time participants are away from their work. All course participants will have a genuine personalised learning experience backed up by support by email, telephone and webcam sessions to ensure learning is applied to their own workplace. The format of our course delivery helps our course participants to stay focused and engaged.

Our courses provide far more than the unit content, with each of our participants receiving coaching and mentoring with personal, professional and organisational benefits. We help all our participants to achieve success in the qualification but also in their career development. In order to facilitate this level of involvement with each participant we restrict the size of our groups to a maximum of 10 participants.

All NGA courses include:

  • Induction to ILM and Northern Growth Academy
  • Individual and group tutorials
  • Observations
  • Assignment Writing
  • Portfolio Development
  • Email & telephone support
