Friday, May 10th, 2019

Kreston member Duncan & Toplis is now an accredited centre for the Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) and will now be offering leadership and management training as an accredited ILM centre.

ILM is the leading provider of management and leadership coaching and qualifications in the UK.

Becoming an ILM accredited centre bolsters Duncan & Toplis’ in-house management development programme, enabling the company to train its team members to ILM qualification level and offer qualification training to external businesses and clients.

Duncan & Toplis HR Director, Heidi Thompson, programme lead:
“As an employer of more than 400 people, Duncan & Toplis is committed to providing its managers with a strong foundation of leadership and management skills.

“In addition to training our own managers and leaders we are now able to offer ILM qualifications to clients with the level of quality and experience people can expect from Duncan & Toplis.

“We’re passionate about supporting the wider community and business environment so we’re excited to be able to offer these qualifications to our clients across the region. ILM courses are of the highest standard and candidates will be trained by senior members of our HR team who all have a wealth of expertise in management and leadership training.”

Every year, ILM qualifies 70,000 leaders and managers, helping them develop the critical skills to succeed, and make a real difference to the present and future of workplaces in the UK and around the world.

Duncan & Toplis will be running ILM qualifications at Level 3 and Level 5. Level 3 is aimed at line managers and supervisors with no formal training and for those looking to take their first step into management. Level 5 is more suitable for middle managers, senior managers with no formal training or people moving into that level. All courses are completed over 3 to 4 days and can be held as either a public or in-house course.

The courses provide real-life experience and an opportunity for discussion and debate which gives learners space for reflection and significant management development. Duncan & Toplis aims to make training enjoyable, with a relaxed and fun atmosphere that encourages learners to see value whilst having a positive experience. Learners can expect to see immediate and long-lasting benefits through the practical and work-based approach, giving further confidence to employers.
