Accredit Paves A New Way For Online ILM Certification

April 2012

The Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) is the UK’s largest management body, combining industry-leading qualifications and specialist member services. Founded on the principle that skilled managers and leaders hold the key to creating productive workforces that deliver organisational and economic success, ILM’s qualifications and membership services are designed to drive up the standards of leadership and management and improve individual and team performance. Traditionally, these programmes have had to be delivered in classroom mode through accredited training centers. Now there is an attractive alternative- Accredit is the new way of delivering quality ILM qualifications online.

A suite of learning products and services, Accredit is a new, innovative eLearning solution based upon several key elements, each combining to provide a solution to suit all sizes of organisation. These include: -

  1. eLearning
  2. the Accredited Learning System (ALS) and portal
  3. assessments
  4. verification
  5. blended learning strategies

THE Group, a leading business consultancy providing services in the areas of training and development, leadership & management and strategic business consultancy, is the exclusive UK distributor for this suite of learning products and services.

The Accredited Learning System (ALS) has been built to integrate all of the functionalities that one would expect of a Learning Management System (LMS), plus an extensive range of additional sophisticated functions. Powered by Upside Learning’s multi award-winning, best value Learning Management System, UpsideLMS, the ALS has been customised as per ILM’s requirements and standards. It has been mapped to ILM’s workflow and also has an audit facility for ILM purposes.

The ALS meets the needs of ILM and, today, is used to deliver a wide range of ILM qualifications including ILM level 2, level 3, level 5 and level 7 Development Courses.

About Accredit

Accredit is a new, innovative e-learning solution that has been uniquely produced to the standards of awarding bodies and can be up to four times more cost effective than a direct training solution.

Accredit offers ultimate flexibility, whether utilised as a sole delivery method or as an integral part of a blended solution. With a range of sophisticated features, the platform acts as a communication and collaboration system as well as an accreditation management system, hosting organisational content alongside qualification materials.
