About this Qualification

The IQ IAM Level 5 NVQ Diploma in Management and Leadership is a qualification aimed at individuals who intend to develop and gain formal recognition of their competence of working as senior managers, heads of departments or directors. The qualification is generic, so it is suitable for individuals working or with access to work in a variety of management and leadership roles.

In the mandatory units, all learners will cover the essentials of contributing to the development of strategic plans, designing business processes, managing strategic change and providing leadership and management. There are a range of optional units allowing learners scope to choose those areas most relevant to them, including but not limited to: establishing business risk management processes, equality of opportunity, diversity and inclusion, collaborative relationships with other organisations, product and service development, optimising the use of technology, networking, operational plans, learning and development, discipline and grievance management, relationships with stakeholders, physical resources, tendering processes, managing business risk, the impact of work activities on the environment, strategic marketing activities, health and safety, managing information and knowledge, events, customer service, sales proposals and planning, recruitment, redeployment and redundancies, quality audits, leading the development of knowledge management, quality and continuous improvement strategies, projects and budgets. Objectives of the qualification include: preparing learners to progress to a qualification in the same subject area but at a higher level or requiring more specific knowledge, skills and understanding, meeting relevant programmes of learning, preparing learners for employment and supporting a role in the workplace.
