This intensive session is a prerequisite for Imperial Leadership and Management Development Programme specifically designed to meet the needs of new managers in the College with responsibility for other staff.
Before applying for the ILMDP, you will need to attend this session first as a standalone module.


To give line managers relevant knowledge, skills and confidence to effectively lead and manage others, understand their own impact on others and be able to adapt leadership and management style.

The course is aimed at those who have been recruited or promoted to a first position of management (i.e. having responsibility for the work and PRDP of another staff).
