Will I have to do tests or assessments / assignments?
Yes. In order to be certified in the ILM Leadership and Management – Level 3 – Award, we, as an accredited training provider are required to present the quality assuring body (ILM) with evidence of your competency. We will do this in two ways:
• Provide you with online self-assessments in the form of multiple choice questions. There are typically 15 per unit and are easy if you have gone through the Learner Guide and watched the online videos.
• You will be required to submit (upload) a practical assessment / assignment. This will be marked by a subject matter expert. You will need to achieve a minimum of 50% in order to be declared competent in the unit (topic).
Do not panic, these are all designed to have you exit with the necessary knowledge and skills to run your own business!

This programme makes up part of the larger Diploma you could work towards. The next step after completing the Award, is to do the Certificate and then this will lead you to the Diploma – which is the end of the line.
Form this point you could progress to the next level – Level 4.
What support can I expect to receive from the online programme?
This is what differentiates AeL from the rest! You can expect to receive expert advice and support from our experienced team of managers. They will guide and mentor you in the following ways:
• Skype or similar online meeting platforms, either one-on-one or in groups of Learners;
• Via e mail, WhatsUp or similar chat sessions with other entrepreneurs; and
• Periodic face-to-face workshops in an area near you. Dates of these will be confirmed.
What device can I use to access the online programme?
We have designed the online programme primarily for desktop / Laptop users, however the web portal will work equally well with a mobile phone.
Will I get a certificate once I have completed the programme?
Once you have been found competent in all the units (topics), AeL will call for an external moderation from ILM. Once they agree that the evidence provided by you is authentic, sufficient, valid and current, they will generate your Award certificate.
Once we receive the certificate, we will post this to you right away!
Can I get the Learner Guides in hard copy?
Yes. Some Learners prefer to have hard copies to work from, besides the pdf versions provided online. You will receive the same material made available online.
There is an additional charge of £69 to have the hard copies (in colour) of the material posted to you.
What resources can I expect to receive once I have enrolled?
Aside from the electronic support (Skype / e mail) that you will receive from our mentors, you will have the following resources at your disposal, which can be downloaded:
• Learner Guides. These contain the information relating to the unit or topic;
• Online videos explaining the units (topics); and
• Powerpoint Presentations which can reviewed any time you wish.
• Self-assessments which will test your knowledge on the unit (toplic).
Where can I go if I have a complaint, suggestion or compliment?
We really hope that you have more compliments and suggestions rather than complaints. However, we are human and prone to error, so if you need to lodge a complaint (or make a suggestion), you can e mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
What will AeL do with the personal details I provide when enrolling?
We are required to register your details with ILM, so that they are aware you are formally enrolled onto the programme.
Other than that, we will NOT share any of your details with third parties!
What are my rights as a Learner enrolling onto the online programme?
AeL is all about protecting your rights as a Learner and most importantly a favoured “customer” of ours.
If you feel you have been unjustly treated or assessed, please make use of your right to appeal see Quality Policy Manual for the process.
What would be considered immoral or unethical of me as a Learner?
At AeL, we expect that any work you submit to us for assessment is your authentic work and not that of anyone else’s.
We frown heavily upon plagiarism, so ensure you provide references of another person’s work, if you are referring to it.
Do I have what it takes to be a manager?
Management skills are skills which are learnt. Some Learners find the skills easier than others to master.
Management and Leadership is about following the organisations processes and motivating team members to pull in the same direction.
We will teach all of these if you follow the programme from Award, Certificate and then graduate to the Diploma.
What engine powers Advanced e Learning?
The online portal is an adaptation of our successful sister company Award Training, which has its origins in Port Elizabeth South Africa.
The assessment strategies and format are based on proven systems which are currently being used in South Africa.
Dr. Graham Ward and Mrs Monique Ward are the proud shareholders of Award Training.
