Our ILM qualifications are known as Vocationally Related Qualifications (VRQs), which means they are highly practical and focussed specifically on the role of a manager. They are aimed at developing the skills and knowledge needed by managers and supervisors so that they can perform at the highest levels.

Level 3 and 5 ILM management programmes are popular for new and aspiring managers and supervisors at the relevant levels.
