Course summary

Only 1 in 5 Managers have a recognised Management Qualification and yet Employers are actively looking for people with these qualifications right now!  Why not join the ‘1 in 5’and make your  CV stand out from the crowd by gaining a CMI  qualification at Sandwell College? The ability to coach and mentor others is fast becoming a sought after workplace skill; as employers are increasingly using workplace coaches and mentors to develop the skills, knowledge and performance of their employees.

The monthly classes are delivered on a Monday from 9am to 5pm at the College’s Professional Studies Centre at Bennetts Hill in Birmingham City Centre.  New Street Station and Snow Hill Station are only a few minutes walk away and the area is well served by buses and trams.
