Chartered Management Institute established over 60 years ago as the British Institute of Management back then; it has developed the UK’s very first diploma in management studies. In the years that followed CMI has consistently been at the forefront of all aspects of management and leadership. Today CMI is the only chartered professional awarding body committed to offering the highest standards in management and leadership excellence. Presently over 100,000 managers use its unique services daily. CMI qualifications aim for managers and leaders at any level, and it remains the only Awarding Body which can award Chartered Manager status – the ultimate management accolade. Employers highly value the qualifications awarded by CMI, and boost your career prospects.

  • Outstanding tutor support that gives you supportive guidance all through the course accomplishment through SBTL Support Desk Portal.
  • Access to CMI Management Direct and our Cutting-edge Learning Management System, where you can access comprehensive learning resources and communicate with the support desk team.

  • Live Classes (for Blended Learning Students only).

No Formal Assessment: Unlike formal qualifications, CMI Bitesize programs do not involve traditional assessments. Instead, they include a series of reflective activities that participants complete as part of the program. These activities encourage individuals to reflect on their learning, gain a deeper understanding of the concepts covered and explore how to apply their newfound knowledge in practical situations. The emphasis is on self-reflection and practical application rather than formal assessments.

Learners must:

  • Be 19 years of age and over
  • Have considerable work experience as a junior manager, first-line manager or similar job role.
  • Possess the ability to complete the Level 5 Qualification
  • Bitesize series are designed to align with CMI Level 5 qualifications. Upon completing all three programs within a series, you become eligible for the top-up route to obtain a Level 5 Award in Management and Leadership.
