ILM qualifications explained


We provide ILM qualifications from Level 3 (equivalent to A Level) through to Level 7 (postgraduate), which means we can support students at all stages of their career.

Qualifications are made up of bitesize Units in a variety of interesting topics, which provides choice for the student and their organisation.

Students achieve Credits each time they complete a Unit. These Credits build into Awards, Certificates or Diplomas, depending on the depth and breadth of learning.

Studying with Aspire Development

We build our qualifications around our students and their organisations. We select Units that will equip managers, leaders, coaches and mentors for the workplace of the future. Workshop learning is stretching and enjoyable as topics are explored and made relevant to work. Learning Assessments are pragmatic, requiring students to apply what they learn and make a positive impact on performance.

Bespoke Qualifications

First, we design a training course to meet your organisation’s goals.

Secondly, our expert Quality team identify the Level and Units to match your programme content.
