ILM experiences: Gaining recognition
ILM recognition of quality in-house training adds value to learners
ILM works with employers to bring that extra element of quality and brand association through the ILM Recognition Programme. Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines have seen first-hand how the programme can work for a large organisation as David O’Connor, Corporate Training and Development Manager explains, ‘Our partnership with ILM gives real professional support and credibility to the training that you deliver within your business. It also allows you to build flexible, diverse approaches to business needs that you have within your organisation. ‘
The Supervisor and Management Development Programme at Fred Olsen is a short course recognised by ILM and given the status of an 'ILM Endorsed Programme’. Fred Olsen design and deliver their course while ILM provides on-going quality assurance of the programme, learner certificates and free studying membership of the Institute of Leadership and Management for all the learners.
David finds that the partnership works well and has this advice for employers, ‘For anyone thinking of partnering with ILM, the benefits that they'll bring to your business and to your employees are very significant and it's something I would whole-heartedly recommend’.
