CMI Level 5 Management and Leadership Course

Aimed at departmental and middle managers to enhance leadership abilities, build confidence, and benchmark you against international management standards

Become the leader you want to be

Studying with IDG gives you much more than a qualification. Our purpose is to go beyond supporting you achieve an Award, Certificate, or Diploma.

We offer you a leadership development programme, built to enhance, sharpen and even transform your capabilities and your impact. We do make sure it is relevant to your current role and organisation, and prepares you for the next step in your career.

We assign you a personal leadership mentor who will guide you through the challenges and tasks you must complete. Our mentors are experienced leaders, not just tutors – so they can advise you and make sure that you confront and overcome the dilemmas and challenges you will face.

Our programmes are designed to be totally flexible to your personal circumstances, lifestyle and work commitments. Study at your own pace – there is no timetable of lectures for you to attend, or milestones for you to hand in work.

Award, Certificate or Diploma?

The Level 5 qualifications in Principles of Management & Leadership are made up of individual units that can be combined to gain an Award, Certificate or Diploma.

Awards are a single-unit qualification focusing on a specific element or principle, such as Principles of Managing and Leading Individuals and Teams to Achieve Success , and Managing Performance.  If you complete two units, you will gain a Certificate. A Diploma is awarded after completing six units.

What is involved?

The programme is delivered using a multi-media approach that incorporates video, audio, scenario-based activity, mentor conversations, reading, watching and reflecting.

You will be set a series of ‘challenges’ that will ask you to consider key issues in principle and for your own organisational context. You will be required to draw conclusions, recommend and justify action, and generate real-life evidence of your thinking and approach for each challenge.

Your submissions will be sent to your designated mentor whose job it will be to guide you and ‘stretch and challenge’ you. Most other centres can’t do this, as they use tutors and people with minimal leadership experience who aren’t able to advise or stretch other leaders.

There is no exam or dissertation required: on successful completion of all the challenges and tasks, you will be formally assessed and put forward for the relevant qualification.

The general learning process is as shown.

How long does it take?

The answer to that question depends on what qualification you are taking, at which level, and how much time you have to devote to it.

We enable you to study at your own pace – there are no set timetables of study or lectures you have to attend,instead you learn at the speed that fits in with your personal circumstances. Typically, an Award takes around three months, Certificate about six months and full Diploma around 12 -15 months – though this varies according to the time you are able to dedicate to your learning.
