The Management Centre achieves highest level of accreditation


The Management Centre at Bangor University is please to announce that it has achieved accreditation from the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) to deliver their Level 7, post-graduate standard qualifications in Strategic Leadership & Executive Management and Executive Coaching & Leadership Mentoring.  The Centre is the only provider in Wales and only one of two in the North West Area to have attained this high level in Management provision from ILM

"We at The Management Centre are proud to be offering these high-level programmes to managers. We are already working with several organisations to provide these qualifications for their senior managers and leaders."  - Rebecca Jones, director of business development

"Our qualified experienced team have been brought together to provide the highest levels of management and leadership qualifications." - Dr Colyn Gardner, chief executive

Building on the coaching and mentoring programmes which began in March 2008, The Management Centre will be offering Award, Certificate and Diploma qualifications at Level 7 in Strategic Leadership & Executive Management.  The programme commences on the 16th April 2008, with each unit taking one evening per week over three weeks to complete. 

Additional programmes in both coaching & mentoring and leadership & management are planned for later in the year as summer school or weekend options.  September will see the launch of ILM Level 5 qualifications, which are regarded as degree level standard.

All of the training programmes offered by The Management Centre can be delivered at the Centre or off-site at client premises. Programmes are designed so that individuals have the opportunity to start at any point in the programme and pick up units as time permits in order to build up enough units to gain the qualifications. ILM qualifications provide external recognition of quality and commitment to develop employees, as well as providing value to organisations by maximising the transfer of learning into the workplace through work-based assessment processes.
