CMI Level 6 Management and Leadership qualification

Whether you’re new to your role, or you’ve been in a management position for years, with the CMI level 6 Management and Leadership qualification you’ll discover brand new ways of thinking about leadership. You’ll be supported by an expert leadership mentor, who can impart their knowledge and experiences of leading from the top.

The CMI Level 6 Management and Leadership qualification helps you to open up and explore your approach and perspectives of leadership and management, helping you to effectively manage organisational change, and consider your ethical approach to leadership.

Our CMI Level 6 qualifications are about far more than memorising information. Throughout the programme, you will learn a great deal about yourself through a combination of leadership profiling and reflective learning from our online learning platform. By recording your journey in your own personal leadership development blog, you’ll find it easier to track and learn from your progress.

This level of qualification is ideally set for those who are seeking to delve into their mindset and consider how their personal development impacts their leadership style, especially when dealing with, and leading change in their organisation.

Develop at your own pace

Rather than spending four years studying towards a degree in leadership and management, you can achieve the equivalent with CMI in around 18 months. The interactive materials within our online learning platform and face-to-face delivery help you to develop at your own pace. Rather than taking you back to school, our assessments are more representative of the professional environment you are used to.
