Upside Learning Expands Its Catalogue Of Courses By Partnering With THE Group To Offer ILM Qualifications

May 2012

As part of its learning solutions portfolio, Upside Learning has been offering a range of more than 3000 ready-to-use courses in the areas of IT skills, Soft/ Business skills, Health & Safety and Banking & Finance. The company has augmented this range further by partnering with THE Group, a leading business consultancy providing services in the areas of training and development, leadership & management and strategic business consultancy, to include Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) Level 3 Qualifications in First Line Management (Award, Certificate, Diploma) and the Level 3 Award in Leadership qualification.

The ILM Level 3 Award, Certificate & Diploma qualifications in First Line Management and the ILM Level 3 Award in Leadership have been specially designed to give practising or aspiring leaders and first line managers a solid foundation in their formal development as a leader and/or a manager. Further, these ILM qualifications offer flexibility to all candidates in choosing from a diverse range of optional units to build their qualification - the Award, Certificate or Diploma. This high level of flexibility allows individuals or their employers to custom build a qualification focusing on the key areas of leadership or first line management that are most relevant to the demands of a specific role, industry or organisation. From managing health and safety to planning change in the workplace, ILM Leadership and Management qualifications can be fully tailored to meet the varying needs of learners across all employment sectors.

These e-learning products represent a major step in providing access to employees who wish to pursue their personal development outside the confines of the classroom. These modules represent the first units to be formally validated by ILM. We intend creating further suites of products over the coming months.

Commenting on its collaboration with THE Group, Amit Garg, Director of Upside Learning, said, “We have been working with THE Group for over 2 years now. After having helped them develop a Qualification Learning Management System (QLMS) called Accredit® for administering ILM qualification courses online, we decided to take our partnership to the next stage and offer actual ILM qualifications”. Further he added, “ILM are already the largest leadership & management awarding body in Europe and are increasingly becoming renowned the world over for their quality and standards. We believe Accredit® is a fantastic product that will help organisation in their training endeavour through these internationally recognised leadership & management qualifications.”

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.
