The Workplace Innovation Foundation Programme

As a manager, emerging leader, team member or progressing your career, our Foundation Programme provides you with an in-depth understanding of the concept and practice of Workplace Innovation, how it enhances business performance and employee wellbeing, and how you as an effective change leader will inspire, engage and empower your people.

You gain knowledge, skills and practical approaches that can deliver real change.

You achieve an internationally recognised ILM Level 5 Award in Leadership & Management as well as Workplace Innovation Foundation Status. Your organisation benefits from your new knowledge, insights and leadership skills.

And you become part of an international community of change leaders from other companies and public sector organisations, sharing and learning together.

How it works

Our approach is based on blended learning, giving you the best possible combination of e-learning, on line tutor support, regular workshops and peer-to-peer exchanges of ideas and experience. We’ll work with you to help understand how learning from the Workplace Innovation programme translates into practical ideas for change.

You’ll access all your individual programme material on our interactive Fresh Thinking Labs e-learning platform including films, case studies, articles, practical tools and downloadable resources, organised in intuitive, clearly explained, action-oriented themes.

Your online Learning Log allows you to capture key points from each theme, and to explore how you could apply them in practice. This is how we add tutor comments, assess your progress, and avoid the need for lengthy assignments.

You will also gain the skills and confidence to prepare, design and deliver professional presentations on key aspects of leadership and change.

While you study in your own way and at your own pace, we’ll keep in regular contact to ensure that you have all the advice and support you need.

For most participants, this flexible Programme will involve circa 30 hours e-learning and assessment, plus a total of 4 hours one-to-one tuition and optional monthly webinars and workshops on key topics.

Fresh Thinking Labs enables you to connect with people on our Programmes, including from other organisations!
