ILM Level 2 Award/Certificate in Team Leading

Level 2 Award/Certificate in Team Leading

The ILM Level 2 Award in Team Leading and ILM Level 2 Certificate in Team Leading are qualifications specially designed to give practising or aspiring team leaders a solid foundation in their formal development as a leader.


It is often difficult to make the transition from being part of a team, to leading a team. The ILM Level 2 is an introductory team leading course designed to give students the knowledge of the various roles, functions and responsibilities of a team leader. The course also offers optional units, which students can choose from to tailor the course to their specific needs and career aspirations.

The Award is a concise qualification designed to give learners a basic knowledge of the various roles, functions and responsibilities of a team leader and the limits of their authority and accountability. The mandatory unit in‘ Developing yourself as a team leader’ is a good starting point for team/cell leaders who are new to their roles or for aspiring leaders who wish to gain a solid understanding of the principles and the practicalities of team leading.


The Certificate builds and broadens the skills and knowledge gained in the Award (please note learners may join the Certificate directly and are not required to undertake the Award as a prerequisite). Here, practical techniques in motivating teams, plus planning and monitoring their work are explored within the additional mandatory units

of this larger qualification.


Flexibility – all learners are able to choose from a diverse range of optional units to build their qualification – either an Award or a Certificate. This high level of flexibility allows individuals or their employers to custom build a qualification focusing on the key areas of team leading that are most relevant to their specific roles, industry or organisation. From exploring induction and coaching in the workplace, to dealing with customers lawfully, the ILM Team Leading qualifications can be fully tailored to meet the varying needs of candidates across all employment sectors.


There are no formal entry requirements, but participants will normally be either practising or aspiring team leaders with the opportunity to meet the assessment demands, and have a background that will enable them to benefit from the programme

I think this course has improved my confidence a lot, it has been interesting and a huge learning experience for me. I think it was well worth giving up my half term for this, and would recommend it to others.
