The Diploma in Principles of Management and Leadership is accredited by the Chartered Management Institute. This qualification is suitable for those who are, or wish to become, team leaders and/or supervisors. This includes individuals who are at the start of their career that wish to become team leaders/supervisors as well as those aspiring or existing managers who may already have developed practical experience but who wish to develop their theoretical understanding of management skills further.
What will I learn?
The course covers a wide range of business management skills and knowledge, including organisational performance, interpersonal skills and personal effectiveness.
Online, you will study award-winning video lessons, which are available on demand, and can be viewed from your phone, tablet or computer – meaning you can choose how, when and where you want to study. Lessons last for around 45-60 minutes and are accompanied by animations and motion graphics to bring concepts to life. Practice questions, downloadable lesson materials and interactive case studies help to enhance the learning experience further and learners should expect to spend around 3-4 hours studying independently online each week.
On campus, you benefit from regular classes with a college tutor – without having to commit to attending multiple evenings each week. Your tutor will review what you have learnt during your online lessons and will be on hand to provide guidance on progress and assessment. Regular discussion with classmates will help to reinforce key points while also providing the additional support and motivation that comes from being part of a group.

Learners should also have achieved qualifications in English and mathematics at a minimum of level 2 (GCSE) or equivalent.
Upon successful completion of the apprenticeship, there is an opportunity to study CMI courses at level 5 and up to level 8.
Learners who are aspiring to a management role may progress to roles such as Team Leader, Supervisor, Project Officer, Shift Manager or Foreperson.
This course will typically take 18 months to complete but can take less depending on the prior experience of the individual and the specification of the employer. Workshop attendance is one day per fortnight during term time, some sessions may be virtual (this may vary depending on your chosen study centre).
