Providing the 'IF'

Providing the training you require!

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide quality training linked to the needs of the community. Through our centres we welcome everyone into a friendly atmosphere where friends are made, learning is enjoyed and high standards are maintained. We continue to extend our links with industry, commerce and education sectors, while responding to the needs of a changing community.

At ILM Associates Ltd we have a number of key objectives which aim to:

  • Value each individual
  • Provide a challenging and stimulating learning environment
  • Enable each individual to reach their full potential
  • Offer equality of opportunity
  • Develop and encourage the desire to learn
  • Promote independence and responsibility
  • Provide an awareness and experience of industry, commerce or education
  • Provide clear and concise communication within our centres and the wider community


ILM Associates Ltd was founded and incorporated in Aug 2011, becoming an NOCN approved centre shortly afterwards. Since establishing the company we have been rapidly growing and have expanded our training portfolio from security training to other industry sector areas. We became a Pearson VUE Test centre in March 2013 to enable the provision of the CSCS examinations and subsequently became a British Safety Council approved centre. We are listed on the Skills Funding Agency (SFA) Register of Training Organisations (RTO).
