These programmes have been externally verified and offer nationally recognised qualifications for participants who wish to complete additional assignments. Under these schemes, nine managers have achieved a formal qualification from the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) since 2010. The House has given support through allowing them time to attend the programme, study leave and fully funding the training and the qualification. During the same period a further six managers have gained management qualifications such as MBAs from externally run programmes. These have all been supported by the House Service through allowing time to attend the programme, study leave and a range of funding from 50% to 100% of course costs.</p> more like this
