Leadership and development (ILM)


At Leeds Beckett University, we are an accredited provider of Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) courses. We can offer accredited programmes in leadership, management and coaching from Levels 2 - 7.

ILM Programmes lead to internationally-recognised qualifications and use an experiential approach to developing staff. At Carnegie Great Outdoors, we support the residential element of these courses delivered in partnership with the Leadership Centre at Leeds Beckett University.

ILM Level 2 Award

Plus Icon Developing Effective Team Member Skills

Enhanced learning is best gained through exploration and challenge in a supportive environment, where participants feel confident in expressing their ideas. The natural outdoor environment provides both the setting and the stimulus for Carnegie Great Outdoors’ experiential learning programmes which enable participants to achieve an ILM Level 2 qualification.

This two day programme provides practicing team members and potential team leaders with a foundation to develop knowledge and team skills that will assist their personal development and allow them to become more effective. It helps learners understand how people work together to achieve common objectives through team working. It will give students the chance to also learn the importance of communication, adapt their own styles of learning and improve negotiation skills.

The ILM Level 2 qualification are ideal for those over the age of 15 who form part of a team within their schools, sixth form colleges, community youth organisations or social action projects.

ILM Level 3 Award
