ilm endorsed - first steps into management.
This ILM Endorsed Programme is made up of a number of workshops with reflective journals instead of assignments.
LET'S TALK ABOUT First steps into management
This course is designed for anyone who has recently been promoted into a managerial position, or maybe has been managing for a while but never had any formal training. Through a series of interactive workshops we will develop the core skills needed to manage a team effectively, and the reflective journal work will develop self-awareness and help to apply what is learnt. Being an ILM Endorsed programme means assignment work is reduced but the quality of content and delivery is recognised as meeting ilm standards.
why come on the course?
First job as a Manager and worried how to manage and motivate your team?
Not sure how to delegate tasks or manage the step up into management?
Worried all management training has to have lots of written assignments?
If you have answered yes to any of the above questions, then this course is definitely for you.
What is it?
This programme runs over a period of around 10 months, with 9 workshops, most of which are full day sessions. Each of these workshops focuses on key management skills such as communication, delegation, coaching and giving feedback, time management, managing poor performance and managing recruitment and inclusion.
Each workshop builds on the last, so that you can apply the skills you’re learning to specific situations. After each workshop, you’ll complete 2 short journal entries where you reflect on a specific aspect of the session, thinking about how it relates to your situation and job role.
These journal entries form the assessment of your learning and you’ll get individual written feedback on each of these to help you improve and apply your skills. At the end of the programme you’ll receive a certificate from the ILM in recognition of your achievement.
What will I do on the day?
Each workshop is different, but they’re all interactive and practical.
We’ll take you through some management theory, but we’ll help you apply it to your own situations so it’s meaningful and relevant to you.
Some workshops are theatre-based, where our actors will bring scenarios and behaviours to life, helping you to apply skills in practice.
By the end of the programme, you’ll have developed a toolkit of management skills to help you lead your team effectively.
embedding the learning.
An Endorsed programme is very different to a qualification based one - there are no assignments after each workshop for example. However, we do ask learners in order to complete this programme to write a reflective journal after each workshop on how they will use the learning and embed it into their daily lives back at work.
Each workshop is a month apart and we give time for the learners to take the learning back to the workplace and each trainer provides a link to the previous and next workshop so the programme feels very joined up.
By the end of this programme, learners will be able to:
- Demonstrate an understanding of key management skills and how these relate to your personal areas for development.
- Describe and explain the key skills and behaviours of a manager.
- Reflect on your individual skills and behaviours, identifying areas where improvement would enable more effective management of others.
- Evaluate your personal progress and use this information to identify and plan future development.
