The   recently   launched   ILM   Level   2   Award   and   Extended   Award   for   Young   Leaders   (8004)   are   designed   for   individuals   aged between   14   and   24   years.      The   aim   of   the   award   is   to   help   young   learners   develop   a   range   of   skills   and   behaviours   in leadership,   self-management   and   mentoring,   alongside   behaviours   to   build   confidence   and   an   appreciation   of   the   benefits that be gained through social action.  The   development   of   these   skills   and   associated   behaviours   provide   a   valuable   self-starting   platform   for   young   learners   in this    rapidly    changing    world,    enabling    them    to    differentiate    themselves    from    other    applicants    in    their    next    career    or educational path. The   programme   is   taught   in   a   highly   participative,   interactive   and   inspiring   way,   using   presentations,   case   studies   and   group work.    The    programme    promotes    a    reflective    review,    and    encourages    participants    to    apply    their    learning    within    the workplace.      Participants   will   complete   a   work-based   learning   assignment,   which   is   assessed   and   verified   by   ILM   to   achieve their accreditation. The programme is approved in England for DfE (Section 96) and EFA funding.
