At ION we run targeted leadership programmes that aim to raise productivity in the workplace, develop sustainable and profitable enterprises, and develop extraordinary leaders.

New Leaders Programme (ILM Level 3)

Designed to develop and enhance the leadership and management skills of managers and supervisors in the early stages of developing their leadership skills, the programme concentrates on transferring knowledge and skills that enable growth and sustainability for their organisations.

The programme will also assist leaders and entrepreneurs that may have multiple roles within their organisation, enabling them to better balance the day-to-day operational and strategic needs of the business.

The course is delivered through a mixture of highly participative master classes and experiential learning. This programme is certified by the CPDSO (CPD Standards Office) for up to 40 hrs CPD (subject to attendance).

Leading Growth Programme (ILM Level 5)

Our Leading Growth programme focuses on the essential skills required for leaders and managers in small, medium and large organisations. It places particular emphasis on developing leadership skills to facilitate business growth.

Delegates will learn to understand a range of leadership styles and their impact on organisational performance, drive productivity and performance, develop the ability to lead, motivate and inspire others and improve personal growth. The programme will enhance delegates knowledge and skills providing strong direction and motivating their team to achieve the vision and goals of the organisation.

Delegates on our Leading Growth programme will also receive 3 Executive Coaching sessions. This programme is certified by the CPDSO (CPD Standards Office) for up to 70 hrs CPD (subject to attendance).
