Our professional partners

The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) is the only chartered professional body in the UK dedicated to promoting the highest standards in management and leadership excellence. CMI sets the standard that others follow.

With a member community of over 120,000, CMI has been providing forward-thinking advice and support for more than 60 years. We continue to give managers and leaders, and the organisations they work in, the tools they need to improve their performance and make an impact.  As well as equipping individuals with the skills, knowledge and experience to be excellent managers and leaders, CMI’s products and services including membership and access to their online learning portal Management Direct, support the development of management and leadership excellence across public and private sector organisations.

CMI offers qualifications and accreditation from level 2 for aspiring team leaders and mangers, through level 7 for strategic and leaders and up to level 8. CMI recognised programmes are the stamp of approval of non-accredited training and development mapped to national occupational standards.

Learners also have the opportunity to take their qualification further by working towards Chartered Manager (CMgr) status. Awarded only by CMI, become chartered to demonstrate the vast range of skills and experience gained during an extensive career and benchmark it against professional standards.

We are a UK awarding body for management and leadership qualifications, and the only body that awards CMgr, the hallmark of any professional manager. To find out more about CMI’s range of accredited qualifications, membership benefits or CMgr status, visit the CMI website
