Charity course leads to leadership and management qualification

First students receive Level 3 award in leadership and management after completing course designed for charities

Three students have received their ILM recognised awards in leadership and management having completed a course with the Voluntary Action Academy.

Susan Cornell, from Mind in Havering, one of the students who successfully completed the qualification said:

“I’m from a small charity and I really enjoyed doing the course because for me it was very useful for my current job and for my future career as well. The website was very easy to understand but there were some parts where I was glad to have a tutor who was very helpful”

The course follows the ILM requirements for a leadership and management qualification and makes use of real life examples from local voluntary organisations. It was developed by Voluntary Action Islington, who worked with the Centre for Facilitative Leadership (terra institute) to design the course and with Learning Resources International to create a platform with videos and course materials tailored to meet the requirements of people working in busy local community organisations.

Two students received their certificates at the Voluntary Action Islington AGM. The three students who have completed the course to date all work with children and young people. They received support from Children England to take part.
