Tomorrow’s Women leaders

A generation of women are getting ready to take on leadership roles, yet the UK still needs another 1.5 million women in management roles by 2024.

The launch of our new Women Leaders’ Academy aims to tackle this challenge by giving women the opportunity to achieve a Chartered Management Institute Level 5 qualification.

We’ve secured government funding to cover 90% of the fees, which makes this professional and highly respected qualification affordable and accessible to more aspiring women leaders.

What is the Women Leaders’ Academy

The Women Leaders’ Academy is for women working in all sectors, including STEM industries, who are committed to their own learning and development. We are looking for women with ambition and who are motivated to make the time to commit to furthering their career.

Equally, the Academy is for employers who have recognised the importance of gender diversity in management and senior management and are looking for the right path to empower women in their workplace.

About the Chartered Management Institute Level 5 qualification

Through a comprehensive programme of workshops, masterclasses, working with other women leaders, peer support, coaching and mentoring, learners will work towards achieving this recognised qualification from the Chartered Management Institute.

Participants are likely to be middle managers or aspiring to senior management. They should already be managing people and be in a decision-making role.

They will need to commit to the two-year programme and be eligible for the public funding. This qualification gives incredible access to opportunities for personal development, networking, gaining business know-how and benefiting from the latest thinking on leadership training.
