Delegates wishing to register, who have experience in management and leadership can elect to be assessed for prior knowledge and experience. This will identify areas where they have sufficient experience and therefore would only have to register for those modules where the assessment has identified gaps.
Delegates may elect to study the full general ILM diploma or specialise in either the strategic customer service program or the Adaptive Leadership program and still obtain the required credits for the full diploma.


Final assessment requires that delegates complete a workplace syndicate dissertation, throughout the programme, incorporating all the concepts and principles in the modules. Delegates will be required to present their dissertation to an assessment panel comprising of business executives and Assessors.


Each module requires the successful completion of a workplace assignment where the emphasis is on practical application of skills and knowledge.
