CMI Level 5 Management and Leadersip

The CMI Level 5 qualifications in Management and Leadership are designed for practising middle managers who wish to develop their core management skills and practices.

The Award and Certificate qualifications are also suitable for both newly appointed or aspiring managers with experience of leading teams when choosing Unit 5020: An introduction to management and leadership.

The difference between the management qualification options is the number of units you study and pass. Each unit is given a “credit value”, and for each qualification there is a minimum number of “credits” to achieve.

This means you can design the size of management qualification that is just right for you. Later you can add more units and “upgrade” your qualification until you obtain the Extended Diploma. The number of credits for each level 5 management and leadership course are:

Award = 1 unit (6 Credits)

Certificate = 3 units (13 credits)

Diploma = 5/6 units (38 credits)

Extended Diploma = 9 units (62 credits)

Apart from the Extended Diploma option where certain units are mandatory, it is possible to have a free choice over the units you wish to study. We have selected the most popular ones for our standard courses, but if you would like to choose different units please contact us before you enrol.

9 + 6 =

The diploma in leadership and management has equipped me with many more “tools” to carry out my role. Although I have a degree in business administration, the diploma has backed up the skills and experience I have gained since I studied for my degree. The units I found particularly useful with those on budgeting and financial control and as a result I have been able to take on greater budgeting responsibilities and to be able to analyse and understand financial statements.

 

I have been promoted during the time I have been studying for my diploma, and it is clear to me that the fact that I decided that I wanted to further my knowledge and undertake the formal qualification was a factor for me being considered for, and subsequently selected for the role of client services manager for the group
