Following the delivery of the second successful leadership and management course, ICME are pleased to introduce the third course, Aspiring Leaders and Managers which is offered in collaboration with The Cast Metals Federation

The feedback from our initial courses  has been extremely positive with growing interest in the content of each course that we tailor to the needs of the industry. When asked if they would recommend the courses, the response was an overwhelming “yes”, with many already speaking to their employers to recommend that other colleagues attend the training and other planned courses or arranging for our courses to be delivered on site.

Here is your opportunity to book on the next training session.

Aspiring Leaders and Managers is being delivered on 25th & 26th May 2022 at The ECMS, National Foundry Training Centre.

Our practical 2-day Aspiring leaders and managers course is designed to support and develop the next generation of leaders and managers. Leadership and management is critical to the success of all organisations. Times have changed, with command-and-control leadership styles becoming less tenable or acceptable in a complex and digitally connected world. Successful leaders and managers are required to be agile, adaptable, have strong self-awareness and a good understanding of their impact upon others.

This course is a must for anybody who has been identified or has leadership aspirations in becoming a leader or manager within the business, including those who are brand new to a leadership or manager role. It is particularly relevant to professionals, technical staff and administrators who have recently taken on formal responsibility for leading and managing others.

Further information about the specific content being covered during the course can be found on the flyer here.

This course has a discounted fee available for ICME members at just £450pp for the two-day course, including refreshments.

Foundry Training Trust grant support will be available† towards the cost of the course. A grant of £225 is available towards the fees for this course. Additional grant funding is also available towards the costs of travel and accommodation. Visit to contact the Clerk of the Trust for details and for the application form.
† Subject to application and Trustee approval
