Rowan Consultancy was founded in 1997 by entrepreneurs Rachel Weiss and Christine Partridge and has been at the leading edge of delivering effective training, development and coaching programmes with major public and private sector clients ever since.
This latest stamp of approval from the largest awarding body for leadership and management qualifications in the UK sets them apart from other training providers, and places them amongst an elite global network of only 2,000 accredited centres worldwide. As one of the most Northerly of all the ILM’s accredited training providers in the UK, the accreditation is expected to open up new geographical markets for the company North of Perth, most notably in the commercial hubs of Aberdeen, Inverness and Dundee.
With the recession starting to bite, business leaders are being encouraged to gain the edge over their competition by taking management qualifications from the Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM). To assist with the demand, Rowan Consultancy will begin delivering the first of its ILM accredited qualifications in March 2012 with their “Managers as Coach” development course and the ILM Level 3 Award in Workplace Coaching for Team Leaders and First-line Supervisors.
Rachel Weiss, managing director of Rowan Consultancy, commented “This is a tremendous achievement for the Rowan Consultancy team. ILM accreditation is a mark of quality and effectiveness, one which is recognised on a global scale. It positions our business for continued expansion, and offers a great opportunity for companies in the North of Scotland to access high quality leadership and management training without having to resort to sending their candidates further afield.”
“We went through a rigorous approval process to achieve our ILM status and we are looking forward to welcoming our first ILM students in March. We would strongly encourage anyone in a position of leadership or management to consider taking an ILM qualification. By investing in management development, organisations can ensure that their leaders are confident in their abilities and able to lead employees through the challenging times ahead. Nurturing effective leaders through management development is the single most cost-effective investment.”
ILM qualifications are designed to help managers increase staff efficiency and motivation, ensuring that their businesses run at an optimum level of productivity. Training courses can be tailored to the needs of individual organisations and their managers.
