Leadership & Management
Training overview
We have four leadership & management workshops to choose from, each designed to give delegates new knowledge and skills.

Ideal for those working from home or furloughed, our new 'remote' training programme is now open.  You can book a place for yourself or your colleagues in the blue box above, or get in touch with us.

We will send you full joining instructions after a booking is made, ensuring delegates can access our virtual learning platform before the day of the course.

If you would prefer for our trainer to come to you, we can certainly arrange that.  Get in touch and we can discuss your requirements.

Upgrade to a nationally-recognised qualification from the Institute of Leadership & Management

Our workshops are popular as stand-alone training sessions.  However, completing two of the workshops and a written assignment will allow you to achieve a recognised ILM Level 2 or Level 3 qualification.

So proud to have achieved my ILM Level 3 Award in Leadership & Management with CfA.  The trainer was so helpful and supportive.  Thank you!

Saskia, Leeds

I found the Practical Leadership course really useful.  As a new team leader with no prior management training, it gave me confidence to coach team members effectively.  Highly recommended.
