    ‘Future leaders’ complete ILM management course

    24 October 2017 



    Nine employees recently completed their Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) course by delivering their final presentations at Edinburgh International Climbing Arena (EICA).

    Based throughout Scotland, the candidates completed their 18-month ILM course last month. The course was delivered by our Training team together with Develop Training. Employee Development Officer Joanna MacLaine said the candidates have learned how to “manage projects and finance, deal with difficult situations and different personalities, and manage conflict situations”.

    The candidates. Back row (l to r): Maxime Biret, Joe Hayes, Paul Quinn, Craig Tasker, Douglas Hamilton, Katie Lobban and Ian Roberts. Front row (l to r): Julie Greig and Matthew Skeoch.

    Clive Lawrence Forbes, Develop Training’s Head of Corporate Management Development, said that the candidates “come out the other end knowing what you need to do when you’re managing and developing teams to success.” While our Head of Technical Learning Neil Snell described the presentations as “part of the learning that they [the candidates] are getting to become future leaders of the company”. 

    The final presentations for our colleagues who are taking the ILM course in the south and south east of England, take place later this year.
