ILM Level 4 - Accelerate Leadership Development Programme

At TrainTogether, our Accelerate Leadership Development Programme supports experienced managers in their career development and advancement.

Who is it for?

Our Accelerate Programme focuses on the transition from managing people and processes, to being a leader.  Our programme develops self-awareness, personal resilience and a more proactive approach to people management that add values to the team and organisation as opposed to firefighting issues as they occur.

It is aimed at operational managers, middle managers and Heads of Department.

Course Content?

Our Accelerate programme is delivered over a 5 month period, with one full day workshop per month as follows:

  • Workshop 1 - Understanding the Role of a Manager to Improve Management Performance – covering the specific responsibilities of a middle manager to enable its organisation to achieve its objectives.  The workshop provides delegates with the opportunity to self-reflect on their own personal performance and contribution as a leader.  The workshop focuses on how communication and interpersonal skills affect organisational performance and how these skills can be enhanced.
  • Workshop 2 - Developing Individual Mental Toughness – covering the importance mental toughness has on mental well-being and personal performance.  In this workshop delegates will learn how to assess personal mental toughness and how to recognise signs of low mental toughness in others.  The workshop will support delegates in developing mental toughness.
  • Workshop 3 - Managing Change in the Workplace – covering how to successfully manage organisational change, the key skills required and how these skills can be enhanced.  The workshop focuses on the need for continuous improvement and agility in today’s ever changing work environment and equips delegates with tools and techniques to identify opportunities for improvement within their team and organisation.
  • Workshop 4 - Introduction to Coaching for Success – introducing the concept of coaching for success and developing core skills as a coach.  The workshop focuses on utilising coaching as a technique to support performance management and talent development with the team. 
  • Workshop 5 - Building a High Performing Team – building on the previous workshop, delegates will use their coaching skills to explore team dynamics and how these impact upon team performance. The workshop will provide delegates with useful tools and techniques to build a cohesive team that self regulates.  The workshop will provide delegates with tried and tested models to enable them to effectively address performance concerns formally and informally, to have difficult conversations and to nurture talent.

Our leadership development programme is delivered in our dedicated Training Suite in Holywood Co.Down and each full day workshop runs from 9.30am – 4.30pm.   Our dedicated training space is bright, modern and spacious and provides a great environment for learning and developing away from the distractions of the day job.

ILM Qualification

We are an approved centre with ILM, part of the City and Guilds Group and the UK’s leading provider of leadership and management qualifications.  Our Accelerate programme provides delegates with the opportunity to achieve an ILM Level 4 Award in Leadership and Management.  We provide ongoing tutorial support to delegates to support them in successfully completing the two required assignments in order to achieve the ILM Level 4 Award in Leadership and Management.

What makes it different?

Our programme is designed and delivered by a team of HR and Leadership professionals who are considered to be industry leaders in their field.  We use our personal experience as HR Consultants, workplace coaches and workplace mediators, working across a diverse range of sectors, to provide a highly impactful and engaging programme that makes a real difference back in the workplace.  We believe that less is more when it comes to PowerPoint and theory and our training is highly interactive and focuses on skills development and practice.
