Who is the Level 3 Team Leader Programme for?

The level 3 is aimed at new or aspiring team leaders and managers looking to gain knowledge and skills to prepare themselves for the management journey. Having management experience is not a necessity for the Level 3 programme, however you should look to be able to draw upon work based experience as part of the programme.

This qualification is suitable for team leaders, supervisors, assistant managers and analysts.

What will the Programme Cover?

Upon completing the CMI Level 3 Diploma in Principles of Management and Leadership, you will automatically be awarded Foundation Chartered Manager status. This can be studied as a qualification alone or as part of the Level 3 apprenticeship programme.

The programme is completed through a variety of assessments along a 12-14-month journey. This will cover 8 modules which we have carefully selected to benefit a new/aspiring manager.

The Level 3 modules include:

  • Managing a Team to Achieve results
