Q. Should I do a an ILM Award (qualification) or a Certificate of Learning and what’s involved?
A. There is a choice for a reason – neither is necessarily ‘better’, but one will definitely be the right choice for you; either individually or as an organisation. Here are the pbenefits of each:
The Certificate of Learning is a formal learning structure. You attend courses but it is then entirely down to each learner as to what to do with the skills learned. It gives a broader base of learning at each level and there is no writing up to be done. At the end we’ll send you a framed certificate of completion.
The ILM Award in Leadership and Management is a nationally and internationally recognised qualification. You attend fewer courses than with a Certificate of Learning but will additionally complete questions for each course taken. Expect to require about the same number of hours to answer these as you have spent on the courses themselves. All learners are fully supported by our ILM-accredited assessors. The end result is a certificated qualification.
We’re always happy to chat this through t give you personalised advice.
Q. What happens if somebody on a programme leaves our employment?
A. It happens. With the best will in the world, people leave. If a learner on a programme you have on account leaves, any untaken credits can be passed on to the next individual or shared out by you as you wish.
Clearly if they have started their courses or registered for a qualification these credits will have been used. You can replace them to allow your new team member to complete a programme or just use the days on account for days of training.
Q. Do days on account ever disappear if they’re not used?
A. In most cases, the answer is no. Operationally they’re there until used. However, for a number of reasons we do have to have a mechanism internally of balancing that with the need to remove unused days from account where they are not being used or the client organisation has disappeared, been bought or has a change of remit.
To ensure that you don’t lose days from your account you must make at least one booking in any 12 months from your last booking activity. That’s it.
Our terms are that we would take one day from your account – clearly marked as a dormant account charge – if the account is untouched for over 12 months. The days are completely removed if your account is untouched for a period of over three years.
