Studying an ILM course with DLC is a fantastic way to achieve a professional qualification without the worry and hassle many individuals associate with exams.

Who's it for? This is the ideal course for individuals working in middle management looking to become effective leaders.

What's the difference between ILM and CMI?

With so many providers of professional management training, choosing the right course can be a difficult decision. ILM and the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) are both fantastic Institutes to study with, and students are often unsure which option is the best for them.

ILM studies are very popular with individuals working in the public sector, as many units of study look at the responsibilities of a manager. With the ability to tailor your studies to meet your requirements, ILM students can choose to focus on management processes, people management or specialised areas such as sales or operations management.

ILM courses are broke down into smaller units in comparison to CMI courses. This means studying with ILM is the perfect way to learn about more areas of practical leadership and management.

Don’t forget – our highly trained course advisors are on hand to help you choose the right institute and course for your professional development aims.


To successfully achieve the ILM Level 4 Award, you will need to complete a minimum of 5 credits.
