To do that we ensure that the training content is directly relevant to your team’s roles and responsibilities, making the learning experience more impactful and immediately applicable.

At TSW, we recognise that each organisation has unique needs. Our bespoke in-house training programmes are designed to address your specific challenges and objectives. This ensures that the training content is directly relevant to your team’s roles and responsibilities, making the learning experience more impactful and immediately applicable.

Training several employees via public courses can be both costly and logistically difficult. With TSW’s in-house training, you save on travel and accommodation expenses, and the overall cost per delegate is significantly lowered. This makes in-house training a cost-effective solution, particularly for larger groups.

TSW’s in-house training sessions are arranged to fit your schedule, minimising operational disruptions. Whether you prefer weekdays, weekends, or evening sessions, we can accommodate your needs. Conducting training at your premises ensures your team remains in a familiar environment, enhancing the learning experience and reducing downtime.

In-house training at TSW brings your team together, fostering better communication and collaboration. Employees can share experiences and build stronger working relationships. This not only boosts morale but also promotes a unified approach to problem-solving within your organisation.

Public training sessions can pose risks when discussing company-specific issues. TSW’s in-house training guarantees confidentiality, allowing your team to freely address and resolve internal challenges. This level of discretion is crucial for maintaining a competitive edge and operational integrity.

By delivering training in the workplace, TSW ensures that employees can immediately apply what they’ve learned. This immediate integration of new skills helps in retaining knowledge and enhances overall productivity.

The ILM Level 3 in Leadership and Management course is designed to equip managers and aspiring leaders with essential skills in managing teams, driving performance, and implementing change.

This course is crucial for businesses aiming to enhance managerial capabilities, improve productivity, and foster effective leadership across the organisation.

This course is ideal for current and aspiring first-line managers, team leaders, supervisors, and office managers responsible for managing teams and projects.

It is also suitable for individuals preparing for their first management roles​

The course is delivered through classroom or online learning and practical assignments.

Assessments include written assignments, reflective reviews, and work-based projects submitted online and marked by your ILM tutor. This flexible delivery method allows participants to learn at their own pace while applying their knowledge in real-world scenarios

There are no formal qualifications required to enrol in this course. However, it is recommended for individuals aged 18+ with at least two years of full-time work experience or three years of part-time work experience, particularly those in or aspiring to management roles​. 

We suggest this experience level as the assessments are based on real-life scenarios and experiences. They are much more difficult to complete without this experience.

The course duration can vary depending on the chosen qualification (Award, Certificate, or Diploma) and the learning pace of the participant.

Based on those factors, it can typically take 2-12 months to complete a qualification, with a maximum support period of 24 months to ensure flexibility for all learners​.

Effectiveness can be measured through the successful completion of assignments, observed improvements in management practices, feedback from team members, and overall performance enhancements.

Regular reviews and performance assessments can also help in tracking progress and identifying areas for further development​

Yes, TSW offers a high level of customisation for the ILM Level 3 course.

This can include tailoring the content to focus on specific skills or challenges relevant to your organisation, ensuring that the training is directly applicable to your business environment​

At TSW, we pride ourselves on the high levels of support provided to learners.

Participants receive extensive support, including access to online learning materials, tutor support via email, and resources such as the ILM’s electronic magazine and career development services.

Every ILM qualification includes tutorial time, built in to the course delivery, that is used for assessment guidance.

This support ensures learners can effectively engage with the course content and complete their assessments​.
