Accipio has been very professional in the work they have delivered, even following up after the launch of the product. A successful project, thank you.
We are both so impressed at the level and quality of service that you are providing. Thank you also for making those changes so fast, again we are impressed and very grateful of it, also it’s great to be able to provide our manager with such positive news and progress reports as well.
Thank you for being such a great ILM centre. Accipio continues to be one of our busiest.
Thank you and the team for your hard work in making this happen, it is a real step forward for policing.
We worked with Accipio to develop two ILM leadership and management programmes at levels 3 and 5, which has now been delivered to approximately 89 of our people leaders. Delivered by highly experienced and credible trainers, the programmes included some stretching content which tested our managers and helped them to reflect on their practice and behaviours as people leaders. Accipio’s ILM programme came with some high quality materials and delegates benefited from a blended learning approach which included face to face delivery, individual reading and reflection, action learning groups and online support.
Great opportunity to work with other managers across the business, to understand UCAS more and also the challenges they face that are similar or different from your own. This results in having a wider group of support and go-to colleagues in a variety of situations, which I have found invaluable and which I feel has brought a lot more like-mindedness to managers at UCAS. I'm quite bad at studying effectively but in order to give the course your best, the commitment level is quite high particularly when the day job is also demanding. Commitment is quite high in terms of the course book, book club and making the assignments meaningful by working on a range of real life examples, not making them up! It's not rocket science, but sometimes it's hard to know what each question is looking for and that can take up more time. Overall, highly recommended!
I am so pleased I have undertaken this programme. It’s a fantastic opportunity to learn with your peers, learn from the best in their field (the trainers & materials are fab!) and really feel you are then able to make a difference for you and your team. Highly recommended!
The course has helped me better understand people, work and how to manage a team. The course work and guest speakers provide incite , guidance and techniques to help me do my job better and support the team to achieve its goals. It’s is an investment of your time, there is homework and it is not easy but the benefits are already coming to fruition and I have learned a lot more than I anticipated. A professional course for professional people. Highly recommended.
Taking Level 3 programme has helped me to change the way I manage the team. Instead of taking on all the work so as not to overload them, I've learnt to delegate. This has helped me with my workload but also given team members more ownership and helped them to develop their skills.
The ILM Level 5 is a great programme – very well planned, coordinated and delivered with highly knowledgeable trainers. The learning and support materials on iLearn are superb and I’d encourage you to get the most out of the resources available as possible. I’ll be honest, the programme does take some commitment but the more you put into it, the more you’ll get out. The taught programme and assignments offer some great moments of reflection that we might not otherwise have the time or opportunity to do during the day job. Also, sign up to the book club events – they’re a great alternative approach to learning and an opportunity to build a close network of colleagues. Highly recommended.
The level 5 programme has been a great opportunity to reflect on my own behaviours and those of my team. I’ve definitely thought more about delegating and empowering my team and think I’m applying some of my learning in my day-to-day role. The trainers are good and the sessions a great combination of learning, evaluating, sharing and laughter! I’ve also got to know my colleagues better and am more open to discussing problems with them and getting their advice and support. It does take time, you need to make time, to prepare for each training day and complete the assignments. But it feels worthwhile.
