ILM Qualifications Explained

Leadership and management qualifications – tailored to your needs.

What do the levels mean?

ILM qualifications start at Level 2 (ideal for team leaders) and go up to Level 7 (suited to senior managers, such as a CEO). Each level can be achieved at Award, Certificate or Diploma status depending on the amount of credits gained at that level.

Qualification levels are set by the regulatory frameworks. They broadly equate to levels of management position. They also indicate a qualification’s level of complexity.

ILM offers qualifications from Level 2, ideal for new or aspiring team leaders, to Level 7, suited to CEO-level senior management. As you go up the levels, the qualifications demand more complex, comprehensive skills and knowledge.

ILM Qualifications Explained
Educational qualifications versus vocational qualifications

Most of ILM’s qualifications are vocational. We deliver the skills, knowledge and experience you need to do a job in the real world. The level you reached in your academic career might be above or below the right level of vocational qualification for you.

You might have an economics degree, but if you are new to managing a project or leading a team, then you will need a lower level vocational qualification. You might have left school after your GCSEs (or equivalents) and yet because of your level of real-world management experience be ready to take an ILM qualification at Level 3 or above.

Existing qualifications and ILM

While you can choose to deliver an ILM qualification, you can also choose to map your existing courses to ILM standards and deliver even more. Through Accreditation Alignment your learners can achieve an internationally known qualification awarded by The City and Guilds of London Institute, backed by a Royal Charter, on top of your programme’s recognition.

The Accreditation Alignment service is assessing the ‘equivalence’ between your course materials and qualification assessments and the ILM assessment criteria.
