Are you ready for the next rung on the legacy career ladder?

May 22, 2024

Every year, around 30 legacy professionals complete the ILM’s Certificate in Charity Legacy Administration (CiCLA) qualification, gaining valuable knowledge to help them in their daily roles.

Offering the opportunity to take those skills one step further is the Diploma in Charity Legacy Management, developed by the ILM in partnership with the University of Law.

Aimed at those who have already completed their CiCLA or have qualifying experience (such as two years working in a legacy team), the Diploma covers the principal areas of charity legacy management, with a greater emphasis on leadership and technical expertise.

Undertaken via distance-learning, the Diploma course features three compulsory core modules, focusing on developing leadership and management skills, together with finance and compliance. The ILM offers revision support from experts in these fields for any students who wish to take this up.

A further four elective modules offer a choice of nine different options, enabling students to choose those they think will most help them in their role; including tax law, advanced communication skills, marketing and fundraising, and negotiating.

Esther Oddy, ILM’s Head of Member Engagement, says: “The Diploma is effectively a stepping stone which builds on your day-to-day knowledge and experience and takes them one step further. Obtaining a Diploma can demonstrate that you’re ready for a more senior appointment, keen to take on more responsibility and manage multiple teams.

“Our past success rate for Diploma graduates has been exceptional and we have had excellent feedback from students who have subsequently done very well in their careers. We would encourage anyone with an appetite for learning and career progression to seriously consider this as their next move.”
