CMI Level 4 Management and Leadership qualification

The CMI Level 4 Management and Leadership qualification gives you access to new ways of thinking that can transform the way you lead your team. Designed for first-line and newly appointed or less-experienced managers, our CMI Level 4 qualifications (Award, Certificate, or Diploma) will help you to hone key skills such as managing team dynamics, delegating tasks, and key decision-making. CMI Level 4 is the first step on the professional qualification route for aspiring senior leaders, offering you a secure foundation to achieve your aspirations to become a well-rounded and resilient senior leader.

Understand yourself

As a newly appointed manager, you’re often so focused on your day-to-day practical responsibilities, it can be difficult to explore the finer details of your leadership capabilities. Our leadership and management training is an opportunity to gain deeper insights into the way you behave in your role, and how this impacts on your team.

The programme is about more than just facts and theories; you will learn to fully understand and adapt the way you work to different contexts.

Learn around your job

You will be mentored by an expert senior leader, who will share their experiences of leading large teams and organisations. As well as this, you’ll gain access to thought-provoking resources, personality profiling, and much more through our online learning platform and face-to-face delivery.

We know you don’t have the time to spend days away from your team or spend all night writing essays. Our CMI Level 4 qualification is organised around your other commitments, giving you control over where and when you learn.

As a manager, your role is often about verbal communication, and that’s exactly how you will be assessed. You’ll have the chance to demonstrate your newfound knowledge and ideas through reflective pieces, time constrained assignments, and professional discussions with your peers and expert leadership mentor.
