Programme Content

The ILM Level 3 Leadership & Management Programme consists of a series of modules. Each module comprises a variety of learning methods including workshops, e-learning, action learning sets and written assignments.

Participants are required to complete: 

  • attendance at the programme induction (3 hours)

To complete the programme successfully within one year the onus is on participants to attend all the workshops, participate in the activities and discussions, complete any reading or reflective activities in preparation for the workshops, attend the tutorials and access the support of your line manager and participate in action learning sets.

Applications by 28th July 2017

We are currently accepting applications to commence study in September 2017. Letters of Support are being collated and all prospective candidates and their line manager will be invited to a mandatory ILM Induction event in September 2017. Following the Induction event successful applicants will be invited to commence the programme.

Prospective applicants should complete the Letter of Support and return to HR-HRDEnquiries@salford.ac.uk by 28th July 2017 to be included on the Induction event.
