City & Guilds ILM Leadership and Management certification
The leadership programme run by the Civil Service College is a framework to support all managers and leaders in the Civil Service.
The programme is aligned to the CIG core competency framework and supports learning in the competency areas of building capability, working together and delivering results.
The programme is also aligned to both the City and Guilds ILM qualifications and the Institute of Leadership and Management levels of membership. This means successful completion can lead to internationally recognised qualifications and professional recognition.
The programme utilises blended learning and includes self-study and research supported by facilitated workshops. Assessment ensures that you can apply those skills in the workplace.
A discussion should be held with your manager before applying for an ILM course, to ensure you are supported with the time and commitment needed for these studies.
The cost is covered by the Civil Service College, however, non-attendance of the course may lead to recovery of fees from you or your department depending on the circumstance.
Institute of Leadership and Management
Continuous Professional Development (CPD)
Once you graduate from a recognised leadership and management qualification you may be eligible for membership of the Institute of Leadership and Management.
For those who complete a City and Guilds ILM level 3 Certificate or higher, we will provide you with 1 year of membership. Thereafter payment of the annual membership fee will be a personal or departmental responsibility.
Membership provides access to a range of professional development tools and
information to keep you up to date with developments in leadership and
CPD for Strategic leaders
For those in the most strategic leadership positions (e.g. Chief Ocers) we have partnered with the institute to create a development pathway aligned to our competency framework. It focuses on aspects of authenticity, self-awareness, critical reflection, vision setting, delivering results and achievement, ownership and collaboration, resilience and appreciating diversity.
The pathway utilises self-directed learning and online assessment. Once the pathway is completed you will be invited to participate in a structured assessment discussion with an Institute of Leadership & Management accredited assessor. Successful completion of the pathway can lead to the Fellowship level of membership. Access to this programme is reserved for our most experienced leaders who have been assessed as most likely to have the knowledge and practical experience of strategic leadership.
