The ION leadership programme is designed to develop and enhance the leadership skills of owners, managers and key decision-makers of businesses located across Wales.

Led by Swansea University, in partnership with Bangor University, the programme is backed with £5.7m from the European Social Fund to raise skills and drive forward productivity and turnover in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) as well as in larger companies.

In over 10 years, ION leadership has supported over 1,400 leaders in over 1,000 businesses, developing sustainable, profitable enterprises.

ION leadership offers two engaging and effective programmes tailored for people with different levels of leadership experience.

The ILM Level 3 New Leaders programme is designed to develop and enhance the leadership and management skills of managers and supervisors in the early stages of developing their leadership skills.

The ILM Level 5 Leading Growth programme focuses on the essential skills required for leaders and managers in small, medium and large organisations, placing particular emphasis on developing leadership skills to facilitate business growth.

Thanks to support from the European Social Fund, programmes which start before August 31 2021 are currently fully funded.
