ILM and the construction industry
ILM have worked alongside the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) to create a suite of qualifications for the construction sector. These qualifications are designed to equip learners with core skills to drive projects in line with the needs of employers and contractors.
ILM’s new Level 3 Qualifications in Leadership and Management Practice for the Construction and Built Environment Sector (PDF) are aimed at team leaders, supervisors, foremen and site managers.
The qualifications give learners a thorough understanding of leadership and management principles to effectively lead, supervise and safely manage staff in the sector.
All ILM qualifications are built to maximise flexibility which means learners can use credits from successfully completed units to for other ILM qualifications. Units available include:
- Delivery of site operation and logistics.
- Handling difficult situations.
- Achieving performance through people.
- Diversity in the workplace.
The qualifications also have specialist nuclear and tunelling pathways available to allow learners on the Award, Certificate or Diploma to gain skills in:
- Nuclear Safety Culture
- Supervision in Tunnelling Environments
Deliver these qualifications
ILM can quality assure your existing programmes and/or provide advice and guidance to enable your organisation to deliver Level 3 Award, Certificate and Diploma in Leadership and Management Practice for the Construction and Built Environment Sector (PDF) or other ILM qualifications.
If you are a construction industry employer based in Great Britain you can be registered with CITB. Registering your organisation can provide access to funding and support services for skills and training. Once your business is registered you will be required to complete an annual Levy Return, which will enable you to claim grants.
