Qualifications in Management & Leadership

CMI logo

The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) is the only chartered body in the UK dedicated to management and leadership. Its professional qualifications are recognised and respected by regulatory authorities and employers alike.

These are not solely academic courses. In addition to classroom time your group will work with Vanguard Scotland on practical application; applying your newly learned performance improvement techniques to benefit your own organisation immediately.

This ensures you minimise time away from work and that you undertake work study which is relevant to your own organisation’s context.
