Mentor Training (1st time): ILM Level 5 Leadership and Management Course (accredited)
Time & Location
About the Event
Learners will attend four one-day workshops (held over Zoom), with one day approximately every month. This format is to encourage learners to apply their newly- learnedskillsandknowledgetotheworkplacebeforemovingontothenexttopic. Each day will be interactive and include short presentations, self-assessments, small group work and reflection.
In addition to the four study days, learners are expected to complete three assignments. There is no requirement for additional research as all information will be provided during the workshop. Each assignment chosen for this qualification carries 5 credits (bringing the total to 15 credits) and is between 2,000 and 3,000 words. The length of time taken to complete an assignment depends very much on each individual, however most delegates will take between three and six hours per assignment. Full information about the assignments and submissions will be provided during the induction on day one.

Benefits for the Learner
The benefits of the ILM Level 5 qualifications for the individual learner include the ability to develop leadership skills through improved self-awareness and use of a range of management tools to be able to motivate and inspire staff through the provision of strategic leadership and operational management. Delegates develop the confidence and competence to be able to successfully lead, coach and mentor staff.
There are no formal requirements for preparation before the course; however it is helpful for learners to reflect on their practice beforehand. This could include identifying strengths or areas they may feel less confident or want to work on and consider how they come across to others as a leader and a coach to others.
