The ILM Award (NFQ Level 4) and Extended Award (NFQ Level 4) for Young Leaders are ideal for individuals aged between 14 and 24 years who are actively engaged in structured learning within a group or community.
The aim of both awards is to help young learners develop a range of skills and behaviours in leadership, self-management and mentoring, alongside an appreciation of the benefits that can be gained through social action (volunteering).
This includes our 15 Strategies to Employment, which are critically important to get noticed in today’s cluttered job environment.
A 10 hour work placement can be arranged for each learner, in a field of their choosing.
This programme can be combined with other products from our CALP Activate product range.
Both awards (NFQ Level 4) feature one mandatory unit; Developing Self-leadership and Resilience for Young People. This unit firstly builds an understanding of self-leadership, then through goal setting and planning helps the learner to develop these personal skills and finally reflect on their performance.
To complete the regular award learners must complete one optional unit. To complete the extended award they must complete two optional units. A detailed description of the structure can be found below.
