ILM Accreditation

We are an Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) approved centre to deliver the Level 4 Diploma,  Level 5 Diploma and the Level 6 Diploma in School Business Management programmes. 

Our school business management (SBM) programmes are accredited by the Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM), a member of the City & Guilds Group*.  Our SBM Diploma programmes (2016/17) are Ofqual registered as Level 4, 5 or 6 qualifications (as appropriate) and accreditation is available to you as an additional option should you want this.  ILM credits are recognised by a variety of awarding bodies, including some HEIs, so they may count towards a range of other qualifications.

Our new 2018 Level 4 Diploma for School Business Managers programme (full programme) now includes ILM accreditation within the programme fee.

ILM accreditation also includes one year’s studying membership of ILM (conditions apply). See  for further information.

SBM applicants will receive details of accreditation with their offer letter before the start of a programme. 


*ILM is a member of the City & Guilds Group. City & Guilds is the biggest name in vocational education, with two million learners embarking on a qualification every year. ILM qualifications are awarded by the City and Guilds of London Institute (CGLI) under the ILM brand.
