ILM & CMI Leadership Programmes

Grant Thornton ILM programme banner

Activate Business School and Grant Thornton collaborate to deliver two exciting leadership programmes.

Develop your managers’ capabilities today and you will be investing in the future of your organisation. From supervisors and first line managers to more experienced managers, our innovative qualifications will support you to develop your managers. On successful completion of the programme, participants will be awarded an Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) qualification or Chartered Management Institute (CMI) qualification.

And because these programmes comply with apprenticeship standards, you can use the Apprenticeship Levy to fund them.

The programmes focus on core leadership and management skills and how to apply them to the workplace: including finance, communication, self-awareness, managing people and project management.
