ILM in Scotland

ILM has a range of qualifications included on the Scottish Credit Qualification Framework (SCQF).

The SCQF is the national qualifications framework for lifelong learning in Scotland. It’s a way of comparing the wide range of Scottish qualifications by giving each qualification a level and a number of credit points.

Visit the SCQF website for more information on this framework.

In January 2016 the Institute of Leadership & Management separated into two distinct organisations.  The ILM qualifications and assessment arm transferred to become part of City & Guilds Group, whilst its membership and research activities continue to operate independently as a Professional Body.

As a result of these changes, ILM has relinquished its status as an SCQFP Approved Credit Rating Body. The responsibility for the credit rating of current and new qualifications is now undertaken by the City & Guilds of London Institute (CGLI), rather than ILM. This means that the certificate provided to learners, completing our leadership and management qualifications, have changed to reflect the fact that CGLI is the credit rating body. No changes have been made to the content and assessments of these qualifications as the result of this change.

 

*All ILM qualifications are awarded by The City and Guilds of London Institute which was founded in 1878 and is incorporated by Royal Charter.
