What is covered in the programme?
The University of York offers a flexible approach to gaining an ILM 5 qualification, ensuring the modules studied meet the specific needs of the individual. Students must complete 5 ILM Module days from our programme of short courses, the only restriction being that students must attend the core module ‘Developing and Leading Teams’. Therefore the student is free to choose an additional 4 days to suit their learning needs.
In addition to attending the 5 module days the students must also complete three standard assessments:
• Developing and Leading Teams to Achieve Organisational Goals and Objectives
• Management Communication
• Assessing Your Own Leadership Capability and Performance
Every learner will receive a minimum of two telephone tutorials with one of our tutors and be given an ILM workbook.
Each student must also attend one of our ‘Introduction to Leadership’ days that we programme throughout the year (please note this can be attended at any point of study and does not need to be at the beginning). This event will be a two hour session where students can find out more about the qualification and assignments.

How is the course assessed?
Assessment is via practical work-based assignments set by ILM. You will be able to draw on your own work experience and this ensures that you minimise time away from work and that you undertake work study which is relevant to your own organisation's context. Each unit has a written assignment that has various component parts to be addressed. Don't worry if you haven't studied for a while, we can help you with study skills and how to structure your work. The management project will give you an opportunity to work on a significant project; you can link this to your workplace. You will need to be prepared to devote additional time outside class for your own research for each unit and this will help inform your assignments and hopefully make you aware of the wider issues around management and leadership.
