Strategic Management and Leadership Centre Assessment Guidance

Introduction This document aims to support CMI Centres in the delivery, assessment and verification of the Level 7 Qualifications in Strategic Management and Leadership. It should be used in conjunction with the CMI Centre Code of Practice.

About these qualifications Titles and qualifications reference numbers The titles given below are the titles as they will appear on the qualification when awarded to the learner. The qualification reference number is the number allocated to the qualification by the Regulator at the time of accreditation, which confirms that this is a fundable qualification on the QCF. The CMI code is the code which should be used when registering learners with CMI. Each unit also has a unique QCF unit number – this appears with the content of each unit at the end of this document. CMI Code 7A1 7C1 7D1 Title CMI Level 7 Award in Strategic Management and Leadership (QCF) CMI Level 7 Certificate in Strategic Management and Leadership (QCF) CMI Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership (QCF) Qualification reference number 500/4206/3 500/4120/4 500/4117/4

Accreditation dates These qualifications are accredited from 1st September 2008, which is their operational start date in Centres. The accreditation ends on 31st December 2013, and the final date for certification is 31st December 2016.

Qualifications summary These qualifications are designed for managers who have the authority and personal inspiration to translate organisational strategy into effective operational performance. The qualifications require managers to build on their strategic management and leadership skills and to focus on the requirements of implementing the organisation’s strategy. Although the qualifications can be offered to learners from age 18, in practice the majority of learners at this level would be expected to be over 19. CMI does not specify entry requirements for these qualifications, but Centres are required to ensure that learners admitted to the programme have sufficient capability at the right level to undertake the learning and assessment. The qualification is offered in the medium of the English Language.

Progressions The qualifications provide opportunities for progression to other qualifications at the same or higher levels, which could also be work-based or more academically structured. The qualifications also support learners in meeting the requirements for work and/or employment within all areas of management and leadership at this level.
