You’ll be able to bring out the best in your colleagues by making better decisions and improving your communication skills

‘78% of employers agreed that qualifications provide quality assurance for customers and the benefits outweighed the time, money and effort invested in obtaining them’.

Providing Managers and Team Leaders with the right skills is a challenge for many businesses, however, the right training and development can not only fill these skills gaps, it can also enhance staff engagement and commitment to your business.

Why will a CMI qualification help your career?

The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) is the UK’s leading organisation for professional Managers, representing and supporting over 81,000 members and committed to promoting and setting the standards in management excellence.  The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) works tirelessly to increase the number and standard of professionally qualified Managers and Leaders by bringing consistent excellence to Management and Leadership.

When you decide to develop your management skills with the CMI and BSBM, you start on a journey with us that will help you become better at what you do, increase your job satisfaction and gain more confidence in your decision making and yield better performance results.

According to the CMI, more than 80% of Managers said that a CMI qualification is a key part of becoming a professional Manager, and that transferring their new skills also improved the performance of their team.

In recent research by the CMI, the following was recorded from a survey of Managers:

  • Only 1 in 5 Managers hold a professional qualification
  • 81% of individuals were able to share their new skills with their team
  • 79% confirmed their new skills had increased overall team performance
  • 78% noted qualifications provided quality assurance to customers
  • 90% of individuals noted improved performance at work
  • 96% would recommend a CMI qualification to others

CMI qualifications provide a progressive framework that enables you to develop and broaden your management skills. The aim of CMI training is to make sure that Managers have the competence to deliver results, enhance their skills as true professionals and, ultimately, achieve Chartered Manager status.

Chartered Manager is the highest status that can be achieved in the management profession. Awarded only by CMI, thousands of UK Managers at all levels and across all sectors now hold Chartered Managers and highly value it. It has been estimated that a professional qualification makes an individual 9% more employable and can lead to an additional £81,000 in earnings over a career.  53% of CMI qualified Managers have stated that their qualification has helped them in gaining a promotion.

More than 80% of Managers say that taking a management qualification has resulted in increased professional recognition, with most stating that employers prefer qualified Managers when recruiting.

Principles of Management and Leadership Level 3

The role of the first line Manager or a Supervisor is arguably one of the most important tasks in any business.  Achieving high levels of commitment and motivation from front line staff as well as meeting the needs for your customers and your Managers at the same time is pivotal if your business is to achieve success.

Principles of Management and Leadership Level 3 is a brand new qualification from the CMI. This qualification has been developed in consultation with employers and other key stakeholders.

The Level 3 qualifications in Principles of Management and Leadership are aimed at practising or aspiring managers who will supervise or manage a team to achieve clearly defined outcomes. They will typically set and monitor goals and objectives by providing instruction, direction and guidance. Day to day operational and project activities are also a key part of their role.

You will learn about a wide range of management and supervisory techniques and study management theories and models that will assist in a wide range of practical work scenarios. These will boost your workplace problem-solving skills.  You will study current practices in relation to workplace supervision and management. This knowledge allows you to manage workplace problems with the maximum level of competence

Upon successful completion of this course you will hold a nationally recognised CMI qualification, valued by employers. You will be qualified to be able to register as an Associate Grade member of CMI. You may choose to progress on to our CMI Level 5 Diploma in Management and Leadership qualification, or pursue other academic routes with us.

Management and Leadership Level 5

The Management and Leadership course at Level 5 gives you a broader knowledge of middle management skills while focusing on specific leadership areas appropriate to you and your workplace.

The accreditation is designed for practising middle Managers and those aspiring to senior management who want to develop their core management skills such as managing resources, leadership skills and information management.  This course is ideal for the development of Operational Managers, Divisional Managers, Departmental Managers, Regional Managers and Specialist Managers.

You will gain the knowledge of the essential models and theories of Management and Leadership and enhance your management skills and techniques, individual qualities and approaches, vital for a successful career advancement in management.  You will increase your knowledge and understanding of how a Manager should lead, handle processes and guide people

You may also wish to further your ongoing personal and professional development by accessing other CMI qualifications, such as the CMI Level 6 Qualifications in Management and Leadership with the goal of becoming a Chartered Manager.
