ILM experiences: boosting employment
ILM qualifications are designed to unlock the potential of real people in real situations
ILM offers qualifications and progression routes to exciting roles for people who may never have imagined themselves being managers - and no one champions this vision more passionately than Amanda Simpson, Director of SVC Group.
SVC is a recruitment and employment agency with a difference – one that supports its jobseekers and responds to employers’ needs by delivering ILM training to jobseekers.
This gives them a real qualification that they can put into practice in a job
Amanda explains, “ILM has proven to be very, very popular with our learners because it’s fun to do, it fits with their current role, and also they can progress and move on.”
Amanda herself came out of school with no qualifications, but went on to build a successful business. She is passionate about opening similar opportunities to people who don’t have qualifications.
With ILM, she says, they “can still see that there’s a future by taking qualifications either later in life or finding that drive and passion of something they really want to do.”
SVC has seen most of its ILM learners, who start at the smallest Award level, move on to take larger Certificates and even Diplomas in their subject. They do this because they see real results: the qualification is more than a badge on their CV, it is a route to progression. The result is, Amanda’s learners keep coming back for more.
