The Nautical Institute announces first Institute of Leadership and Management courses


The Nautical Institute is delighted to announce that its Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) courses, developed in collaboration with The Seafarers’ Charity, are now open for bookings.

The Nautical Institute, with input from The Seafarers’ Charity, has developed a portfolio of Leadership and Management courses that meet the need for a common learning journey for all seagoing and shore-based staff in a maritime organisation. The first courses will run from 16th October 2023.

In addition to incorporating all mandated and proposed STCW requirements, the ILM courses include training specifically created to overcome shortcomings that have been highlighted within the industry. The courses range from undergraduate to Masters’ degree levels of study and require the students to apply theory to practice in their work environment using reflective practice.

Stephen Window, Head of The Nautical Institute Academy, said: “The operational performance of a maritime organisation can be improved markedly through investing in the development of skills across both seagoing and shore-based staff. These new courses, which have been developed to improve the leadership skills of everyone working in maritime, are open to all personnel in the industry, whether ship or shore based, and are delivered online.”

The Nautical Institute is pleased to be able to offer the Level 3 pathway at an introductory rate of £750.00 (usually £1500.00). The offer will be valid until 31 December 2023. The level 5 pathway commences in January 2024 and will be available at an introductory rate of £850.00 (usually £1600.00), offer valid until 31 March 2024. Both offers additionally include 12 months free membership of The NI and the ILM.

Furthermore, the courses are accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management with internationally recognised vocational qualifications (level 3 to level 7).
