Level 6 in Management and Leadership

The Level 6 qualifications in Management and Leadership are designed for middle managers aspiring to be senior managers to improve personal management capabilities through effective decision-making and strategic leadership.


Our Level 6 Award in Management and Leadership allows you to develop your knowledge of roles and responsibilities of a manager by focusing on specific skill areas.


A more extensive qualification, our Level 6 Certificate in Management and Leadership gives you a broader knowledge of management skills while focusing on the specific areas appropriate to you and your workplace.


With a more comprehensive structure, our Level 6 Diploma in Management and Leadership gives you all the key skills and competencies you'll need to become the manager you want to be.

Typical units:

  • Ethical organisational management
  • Organisational structures
  • Managerial decision making
  • Personal development as a strategic manager
  • Strategic leadership


Assessment is normally via practical work-based assignments provided by your Approved Centre. This ensures you minimise time away from work and that you undertake work study which is relevant to your own organisation’s context.


On successful completion of a Level 6 qualification in Management and Leadership, a number of progression opportunities become available:

  • Enhance your professional status by upgrading your CMI membership
  • Progress to other qualifications at the same level (e.g. from Level 6 Award to Level 6 Certificate etc.)
