Lifetime ILM Approval for No Guru

ILM Approved Centre

We are delighted to announce we have received re-approval to deliver and administer ILM (Institute of Leadership & Management) Qualifications as an approved centre.  This is now a “lifetime” approval and enables us to deliver :

  • Leadership & Management Levels 3 and 5 (with a view to the new L7 award being added later)
  • Coaching and Mentoring Levels 3, 5 and 7

We would like to thank our facilitators and internal quality assurance staff for helping to secure this as it is a measure of the quality of our work and our approach to development.

Looking forward to running more ILM programmes in the coming years.
