New CMI Partnership for STAMC

New CMI Partnership for STAMC

We are excited to announce that we are now a centre for the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and will now be offering CMI qualifications to our learners.

The Chartered Management Institute was established in 1947, originally as the British Institute of Management. Founded with the aim of helping to rebuild British industry in the aftermath of the Second World War, the British Institute of Management had one clear goal: to raise the quality and standard of management in the workplace. This goal remains in place today as the now CMI strives for better led and managed organisations; increasing the number and standard of professionally qualified managers, and becoming a standard-bearer for management training through the development of the very first diploma in management studies.

In 2002, Her Majesty’s Privy Council granted the CMI Royal Charter status. This means that the CMI is now the only Chartered body in the U.K. that awards Management and Leadership qualifications and can award Chartered Manager status: the ultimate recognition of the professional manager.

St Andrews Management Centre is now delighted to become a CMI Partner Centre and offer our learners the opportunity to undertake CMI qualifications or achieve Chartered Manager status. Today the CMI boasts a membership community of more that 180,000 with upwards of 12,000 managers who have proved their professionalism and achieved Charter Manager status. We are excited for STAMC learners to become part of this community.

“The CMI has long set the standard for management and leadership training in the U.K, and beyond. Jeff and I have a long history of working with the CMI and delivering their qualifications. We are delighted that STAMC is now working in partnership with the CMI, allowing us to increase the range of qualifications available to our learners in the UK and further afield” said STAMC Director Rock Bond.

Fellow-Director Jeff Lockhart continued “I first me Rick at a CMI event in Fife, and we worked together in the Branch network, so it is fitting that our business should add the CMI accreditation to our catalogue. The CMI is a globally-recognised brand and we are excited that we will be delivering these high-quality programs to clients old and new. We have developed a good reputation for helping our learners achieve their full potential and the CMI suite of programs is a perfect match for us.”

“CMI is delighted to be working in partnership with the St Andrews Management Centre which will undoubtedly bring immense value to their clients in Scotland, the UK, and the Middle East and Africa markets. Offering CMI Recognised Programmes and CMI’s globally renowned Qualifications provides and opportunity to elevate their professional development programmes for the managers and leaders their work with. It is great that founders and directors, Rick and Jeff, who have both been Fellows of the CMI for many years, have also recently achieved their Chartered Manager Accreditation. We look forward to supporting their new professional development provision and wish them luck with this exciting endeavour!” said Pete Deakin, CMI Scotland Relationship Manager & Associate Head of HE Partnerships.
