"Found the course brilliant- immensely useful! By far the best course either of us have been on so far, really recommend for all managers!" – Leadership & Management
Luka Blackman-Gibbs, Head of NACUE Create, October 2013
- Staff and postgraduate students
For staff and postgraduate students – whether at UCL or another institution – these courses will give you an essential insight into the business environment. The course will provide you with the basic knowledge for starting your own company, or simply give you the confidence to effectively communicate with businesses.
The majority of UCL Advances short courses have been accredited by the CPD Certification Service.
This service helps organisations provide certified Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and acts as a point of contact for those seeking to obtain certified CPD material.
It supports further learning initiatives being undertaken by Government, professional institutions, trade associations, individual organisations and other training providers.
Each of our courses have been submitted for assessment by a member of an independent panel of educationalists and technical experts and the majority have subsequently been awarded CPD Certification status.
Please note: All attendees will receive a ‘certificate of attendance’ from UCL Advances. CPD certificates are issued on request with your completed self-assessment record printed on the back (this will be given to you at the end of the course by the administrator). Both of these certificates will only be issued with a minimum of 80% course attendance.
The short course 'Leadership and Management' has also been certified as an ILM Development Award.
The Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) is the UK’s largest management body, combining industry-leading qualifications and specialist member services.
ILM is founded on the principle that skilled managers and leaders hold the key to creating productive workforces that deliver organisational and economic success. Their qualifications and membership services combine to drive up the standards of leadership and management and improve individual and team performance.
UCL Advances has absorbed the initial accreditation programme fee and you (the attendee) would pay the certification fee of £48. This fee includes:
- ILM Development Award certification
- Full 6 months studying membership to the ILM
The ILM provide a range of resources, information and advice for leaders and managers who are studying on an ILM programme. These have been carefully selected to support and supplement your learning with ILM, and drive your further development.
