CMI support for Members of Parliament


Today the world puts huge emphasis on performance and demands more skills than ever before. Yet far too many managers need more guidance and support to tackle their challenging roles – none more so than Members of Parliament.

In a recent survey, over 90% of MPs agreed good management skills are important in running their office, yet too few had the time or access to resources needed to improve their skills. 

The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) is the only chartered professional body in the UK dedicated to promoting the highest standards in management and leadership excellence. No wonder over 100,000 managers use our unique services on a daily basis.

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Management (APPGM)

Supported by CMI, the APPGM has been running for over thirty years and exists to help develop closer understanding between politicians, business leaders and senior public sector managers. Most recently, the Group ran a Parliamentary Commission on the Future of Management and Leadership, chaired by Barry Sheerman MP and Peter Ayliffe, President of CMI and former CEO of Visa Europe. The Commission’s report, Management 2020, showed how improving management and leadership skills can close the UK’s productivity gap and help achieve sustainable growth for the longer term.


Mentoring enables managers and leaders to share their skills and insights. Through CMI’s networks of its Companions and Fellows we can match you with mentors within your constituency, typically of CEO or Director level, to help support your management and leadership challenges. Companionship of CMI is the highest level of membership awarded to individuals who have shown outstanding levels of management and leadership.


Our practical qualifications are ideally placed to help develop management skills for you and your staff, with our flexible delivery helping to work around your busy schedule. As the only chartered professional body for management and leadership, we also award  Chartered Manager status – the ultimate management accolade.
