ILM adopts Qualifications and Credit Framework
The Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) has relaunched its range of vocational qualifications on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF).
The ILM says learners on its leadership and management-related qualifications will now be awarded transferable credits for each individual unit of learning they complete.
This means that as well as as studying for full ILM qualifications, learners can now choose to take individual units of learning through short courses, or mix and match units from across different qualifications to get the skills they need, with the option of building up to a full qualification over time.
Penny de Valk, chief executive of ILM said: "ILM is delighted to be pioneering this far more flexible and learner-friendly approach to skills development, which will be particularly relevant and beneficial to the UK’s leaders, managers and organisations.
"Unit-based learning makes it easier for managers to gain the key skills they need to meet the challenges of today, building towards qualifications at their own pace and continuing to improve and develop over the full length of their career.
"We have long been vocal supporters of the QCF and are pleased to be among the first to bring the many associated benefits to our customers and learners."
Ken Boston, the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority's Chief Executive said: "By having its courses accredited as part of the new QCF, the ILM is in a position to offer leadership and management related qualifications which reflect the needs of both employers and learners of a more flexible and easily understood qualifications system."
