The CMI qualification in Management and Leadership provides you with the key management skills to operate effectively as a manager and leader.  

These fast track programmes provide a broad-based, practical learning of important ideas, techniques and overall competencies that will improve effectiveness and performance.  Everything studied relates to the management roles and responsibilities exercised, and the elements of the programme ensure that new learning skills, knowledge and techniques can be applied immediately in practical ways.

Your status as a Professionally Registered Engineer, Chartered Engineer (CEng) and Incorporated Engineer (IEng), means that you are exempt from some of the CMI modules of their standard programme, therefore giving you a streamlined route to certified Management and Leadership qualifications and Chartered Manager status.


Level 5 Diploma in Management and Leadership is designed for middle managers and those aspiring to senior management who want to develop their skills.

Extended Diploma

The Level 5 extended diploma in Leadership and Management offers a much greater breadth of topics and is designed to provide a firm foundation in management education to develop your leadership skills.  This qualification will be most applicable for credit transfer when applying for Higher Education Institutions or towards further management qualifications such as the Level 7 Strategic Management and Leadership qualification and the MBA.
