We are proud to announce the expansion of our IHM Fellowship Programme.  The IHM has always had a reputation for education and personal development and this new opportunity puts us right back where we want to be; recognising the past and taking the best of it into the future.

This fully accredited development programme provides members with a choice of professional qualifications – designed to suit their time restraints and development needs.

We are conscious of the fact education isn’t free and money is tight; this is why we have decided to take advantage of the Government Apprenticeship Scheme in England for two of the qualifications; Team Leader/Supervisor Level 3 & Operations Departmental Manager Level 5.  The Apprenticeship scheme encourages recognised, accredited management qualifications and the funding comes from the surcharge most NHS employers are obliged to pay for staff development.  Similarly, we have also negotiated a 10% discount for members on the Level 3 Diploma in Leadership & Management, Level 5 Diploma in Leadership & Management, & Senior Manager Level 7 Diploma in Leadership and Management courses.

All our qualifications have a deliberate ‘business theme’, with a strong health ethos.  At the IHM we see the NHS moving towards a more ‘business-like’ future, anchored in the special values of public service. We think the curriculum takes IHM learning into the future.

Please have a look at the programmes we offer, (from the menu on the left hand side of the page), and if you have any questions then please contact Pauline Bolt pbolt@ihm.org.uk
