First student to complete the ILM level 3 award in Leadership and Management


We are thrilled to announce that Susan Cornell is the first student to successfully complete the ILM level 3 award in leadership and management with the Voluntary Action Academy. Susan was supported by a bursary from Children England. She works for Mind in Havering. Susan said:

“I’m from a small charity and I really enjoyed doing the course because for me it was very useful for my current job and for my future career as well. The website was very easy to understand but there were some parts where I was glad to have a tutor who was very helpful. I think that is a wonderful idea to combine autonomous learning and to have someone you can ask. Thank you.”
