For the past 30 years ILM has been supporting ex-military to succeed in the business world, making the process of re-joining civilian life less daunting.
Armed Forces personnel are able to translate the leadership skills and knowledge gained through all types of military training courses into an ILM qualification, making them more meaningful to employers.
So, whether you are a junior leader or a senior officer, your civilian qualifications can grow alongside your military career, creating a CPD portfolio that will demonstrate your capabilities and highlight your transferable skills – without any additional work.
ILM professional leadership qualifications are the most widely recognised in the UK. Because we’ve worked hard to be the best, we know that our qualifications can support you in proving that you are the best, demonstrating the value of your training and providing a benchmark for whenever you decide to leave the Armed forces.
Our qualifications are mapped to the content and assessment of your training to help you make the most of the accreditation opportunities available. They present the skills and abilities you gain during your training in a way that employers recognise and find valuable.
Even if you completed your military courses within the last 3 years, you still have a chance to apply for your ILM qualifications. Do not miss it! Contact your military training school now.

Did you know that you can gain an internationally recognised qualification from completing your Army courses?
At ILM, we can help you to directly translate the leadership skills and knowledge you have gained through your military training into a qualification that civilian employers understand and value.
Depending on the course you are enrolled in, ILM accreditation can be funded via the Army Skills Offer or self-financed. The Army Skills Offer extends to both Regular and Reserve personnel and can be used to pay for ILM qualifications at every level provided that you are still employed by the Army.

“For me, ILM was absolutely life-changing. My qualification gave me a massive confidence boost when I had decided to change career.”

All candidates undergoing an ILM accredited military career development course can benefit from 12 months of free studying membership with our partner, the Institute of Leadership & Management, giving access to a range of online benefits. Tutors and instructors delivering military leadership courses can also take advantage of this with free tutor membership, giving access to the same online resources to support you both in delivering training and in keeping up to date with the latest trends in leadership development.
Professional Membership of the Institute also provides a platform to support you throughout your military service and, when the time comes, it can help you make the transition to a civilian career by recognizing your skills and military rank through provision of post-nominal letters to demonstrate the external verification of your status as a leader and manager. You will also gain access to exclusive member events and forums, letting you engage with a network of like-minded professionals.
