Who we are & what we do

Today the world puts huge emphasis on performance and demands more skills than ever before. 

Yet far too many managers don’t get the guidance they need to tackle their challenging roles. In fact, only 1 in 5 managers has benefited from a formal qualification or training.

CMI offers practical, proven solutions for individual managers, employers and education providers alike. Our mandate is to create better led and managed organisations - that's why over 100,000 managers and 450 employers use our services to improve their performance.

For Individuals

Practical help whenever you need it; tools and techniques to save time and stress; new ways to enhance your professional reputation; qualifications that show the world you mean business – that’s what CMI is all about.

More and more managers like you are turning to CMI for no-nonsense support that will help you up-skill, improve your employability and make better decisions.

If you are part of the Armed Forces, CMI offer qualifications designed to enhance your reputation while serving, whilst gaining the skills needed to succeed in civilian employment. Find out more, here.

Women in Management (WiM) is also a key network within CMI. The aim is to raise the profile of women as managers and leaders and smash the glass ceiling many face. Right now, we have an offer to join for just £60.

For Employers

CMI helps employers with solutions to overcome challenges such as employee disengagement and managing change by boosting the skill sets of all managers. Our approach ranges from giving people tools to help them develop themselves and achieve nationally recognised qualifications, to endorsing existing training or delivering bespoke development, all designed to improve performance.
