Show the value of your leadership programmes
Give your learners, customers and partner organisations the confidence that your leadership and management programme meets global quality standards by ILM.
ILM Recognised is the validation of a leadership and management programme by ILM against a set of global quality standards, the ILM Recognised Quality Measures.
ILM Recognised confirms that a programme is fit for purpose and aligned to the ILM Footprint.
The ILM Footprint is the requirement used by ILM to determine whether the content of a programme is suitable for approval as ‘ILM Recognised’. It is one of the four ILM Recognised Quality Measures.
A programme aligns to the ILM Footprint if it meets all of the following requirements:
3. Coaching and mentoring
Leadership is about leading people by example and encouragement so that they are inspired and will do their best to achieve goals set.
Leaders create a vision, set direction and bring about change.
Leadership is based on trust, underpinned by principles and guidelines.
Management is about organising and coordinating activities and people in an efficient way.
Managers bring stability.
Management is based on supervision and control, underpinned by policies and procedures.
Coaching and mentoring is about guiding and supporting people to help them learn, grow and develop or to help them manage their health and wellbeing.
In the workplace, coaching and mentoring would most often be linked to training, development and support programmes for individuals.
Enterprise is about finding new business opportunities and making the most of them by taking an entrepreneurial approach.
It may be about setting up a new business or taking an existing venture to the next level.
Enterprise is based around new ideas, innovation, forward thinking, planning and implementation.
The ILM Recognised Quality Measures are the quality requirements used to determine whether the systems and processes an organisation has in place to support the effective delivery and management of a programme and are, therefore, suitable to be approved as ‘ILM Recognised’.
