Why take our ILM Leadership and Management Level 3 course?

Failure to properly prepare senior staff members can result in huge costs to your business.

30% of people have left a job due to a negative workplace culture. Oxford Economics research found that 28% of these left due to their relationship with their manager. Despite this, 82% of managers are ‘accidental’, stepping into the role without training, experience, or qualifications.
