Achieving Workplace Innovation Foundation Status

Accreditation with Workplace Innovation Foundation Status means that you have gained a thorough understanding of the evidence base, principles and practices associated with workplace innovation.

The ILM Award

ILM is recognised by employers worldwide for its quality, innovation and relevance to the modern workplace and is the UK’s leading management qualification provider. ILM recognise that the world of work is changing fast. New styles of work are emerging that are bringing increased expectations and fresh challenges for leadership, therefore organisations need competent and confident leaders at all levels if they are to succeed in an increasingly demanding marketplace.

They believe leaders can grow from anywhere – which is why ILM leadership training is open to managers at any level, in any industry, in any size of organisation.

They have over 50 years’ experience in leadership development and have helped over a million people to develop essential workplace skills that build them up to be stronger leaders.

Through their world-wide network of over 2,000 accredited centres, they set the highest benchmarks for leadership and management performance.

Workplace Innovation Europe CLG is proud to be an ILM Accredited Centre, working in partnership with ILM to deliver our Foundation, Practitioner and Senior Practitioner programmes.

ILM accreditation means that this programme has met and is maintaining high levels of standards set by the ILM, through robust quality assurance requirements which are audited on a yearly basis. Failure to meet the high standards set by the ILM can result in accreditation approval being withdrawn.

The ILM qualification at Level 5 is equivalent to:

  • a Diploma in Higher Education;
  • completing the 2nd year of an undergraduate course;
  • a Higher National Diploma;
  • a Business and Technology Education Council (BTEC) Professional Certificate.


The practical design of the programme enables you to gather information in a way that satisfies the requirements of the qualification’s assessment criteria, without the need for long written assignments. This fits perfectly with the ILM philosophy that leadership and management development should have a strong practical element as well as an appreciation of past theory and current thinking around leadership.

Assessment of the “Making Professional Presentations” module includes a combination of Learning Log Questions, Reflective Notes and a practical presentation you will prepare and deliver on the topic of People Centred Change.

Our flexible approach to assessment means that the answers you give and the presentation you deliver can also be used as evidence of your knowledge and understanding in the assessment of other modules within the programme.

This will be particularly beneficial to you as it will give you a depth of knowledge and understanding of the features and benefits of Workplace Innovation and how they work together to bring about sustained improvement in organisations.

Learning Logs and Reflection Notes

Your Learning Log enables you to record your understanding of the knowledge and skills required for Workplace Innovation Foundation Status.

Personal Reflection Notes are your opportunity to reflect on the relevance of the modules to you, and your organisation if appropriate. What have you learnt? What impact has it made on you? How will this affect your understanding of workplace practices?

Interactive learning

Our interactive learning platform allows you to access a wide range of resources; gives you an ongoing opportunity to interact with others; share knowledge and best practice; learn from each other and provides the opportunity to work collaboratively to identify solutions to common problems.

Tutor support

Individual tutor support is available throughout the programme to help you present the evidence, that you have generated throughout the programme, in a way that satisfies the robust assessment requirements and achieve the qualification.

Detailed explanation and guidance of the assessment criteria and how your evidence satisfies their requirements is given on the Learning Platform. Programme tutors are always available to provide support and guidance to help you through the assessment process.
